    Default Am I weird?

    So I'm recovering from one of the most violent gastric attacks of my life (thanks daycare!).

    Before I attempted eating I weighed myself and felt strangely satisfied that I am now lighter than I was before.

    I always do this when I get gastro. Am I the only one who does this?

    I don't get sick very often. I am currently about 100kg ( being preggers doesn't help, but if i woke up and weighed myself @ 40kg lighter (post preg of course) I'd be bloody stoked lol

    Yep, spent all last night on the loo and had to weigh myself this morning just so I could enjoy seeing the scale go down for once!

    It's such an awful thing to experience, but yeah, I'd be stoked about trimming down a bit

    Nope I do the same. Gastro is hell, its the only good that comes from days of ick. I had gastro recently *shivers*. Wish you could get immunity after copping it once.

    I do the same as well. It's a shame that I mostly put it back on straight away, but it is nice to see the scales go down quickly.

    Not to be Johnny "Party-Pooper", but the weight loss associated with gastro is dehydration in most cases.
