    Ok so I've had a nasty thing lately, part tonsilitis part tummy bug part watch you don't pass out bug. Had it since Tuesday thought I was getting better on Thursday had a relapse, and although I'm fairly sure I am on the mend I'm still far from my normal self!

    Anyway my question is this! My weight has fallen a lot over recent days (about 4 pounds sincs thursday) now I know thats not altogether unusual for some of you but its mighty unusual for me! Now it could just be catch up as I lost 2 last week and expected a little more, but I had a period and was all swollen up round the neck (still am a little) with my tonsils. So the point is... do you think the loss is real? or will some of it come back when I eat a proper days packs and water.... I managed the packs yesterday but to swallow 4 litres is just impossible to handle.... however my body would be more likely to retain water rather than drop my weight wouldn't it?

    Hoping its real and stays off, I needed a boost! I think I will be down to the last stone, but I'll wait for my official weigh in to confirm that!

    Sorry to hear you've not been well. Hope you soon feel much better.

    If you have been SS-ing, and haven't been eating "real" food ... ie carbs then it should stay off. Try adding in extra water as and when you can and you should be in for a nice surprise when you step on the scales for your next WI.

    Sorry not sure of the answer to this, hope it stays off for you and that you really are on the mend. It sounds awful.

    The idea of eating anything at all has been off putting, I think I'm probably healthier for being on the diet as I have made an effort to have the packs, but I've not managed them all!

    Lets hope it does stay off then!

    Quite excited!

    Happe, watch out for that wedding ring in another month or 2, I've had to stop wearing mine again in case I lose it, I'm going to have to have my rings adjusted when I get to my target weight.
