208 lbs: Down with the Sickness

I spent the last week coughing and hacking (and taking care of equally sick kids) instead of going to the gym. The upside to all the phlegm though is that I didn’t have much of an appetite, and as usually happens when I’m sick, I lost some weight. In fact, I’m now down to 208 lbs., which officially puts me at halfway to my goal of 190 lbs.

Usually I tend to regain the weight I lost while sick over the course of a week or two, as my body reaches equilibrium, but I’m hoping my return to the gym this week will allow me to keep some of the loss, and provide at least the slightest silver lining to the last week of hacking.
