    Hi - I was poorly for 4 days or so at last WI and only lost 1 lb! I did have a bit of chicken salad one day as i had a bad tummy and needed something! My losses before then have been 4-5 lb.

    Hopw you're feeling better now and the weight drops off again!

    Yes, it does often slow.

    I never lost much if I was ill, and even now when maintaining a 'poorly' week will lead to a couple of pounds gain, even if I haven't changed my eating patterns and exercise.

    In fact, just a headache with a couple of painkillers seems to add on a pound.
