    Sorry you've been poorly, hun.

    Have you been taking anything for it - any throat sweets, lemsip, that sort of thing? If you have, that could account for the gain. But even if you haven't, it'll be water. It can only be water. Your body holding on to the stuff so it can make snot...;)

    Disgusting, but true. :) The pounds you should have lost this week will come off just as soon as you're better.

    Wrap up warm! x

    Hav come to confess :(

    Hav actually had the weekend off :(

    Hav been and am still full of it, bunged up, swollen ears, coughing, sneezing, full on head cold.

    Am determined to go back 100% Monday morning.

    Not going to feel a failure just going to get back to it first thing.

    Aw, totally understandable, hun :hug99:

    That pound on really hurts when you've been 100% and feeling poorly.

    Back on it tomorrow, lots of water - and goodbye horrible snuffly cold!
