Muscle is heavier then fat and way easier to loose as it hold nutrience and when your body lacks them, it will get them from the muscles first. Your pina coladas and popsicles doesn’t sound very nutricious so your body had to use some of your muscle to replenish whats needed.

I seem to be exactly the same. I will admit that I have been eating healthier but I do still enjoy my snacks and Im not sure if I’ve lost much weight but I have certainly slimmed down to wearing smaller clothes. I have also started doing a bit more exercise mainly walking and cycling but not a lot.

I’ve lost 5 lbs from muscle loss but it would take me maybe 2-3 weeks or so to see that much loss.  Certainly not 2 days.  It really might just be some water loss from the heat.  That would be my best guess anyway.

Heat wave + sinus infection, you’re sitting but you’re sweating and fighting infection and you’re body is still working in over drive and probably a little dehydrated (fight is at you might, you probably are with a heat wave and an infection!) Its normal to lose some weight when you get sick. Not a lot, but six pounds happens. Just keep your fluids up and fight that infection! Get better soon! 🙂

It is probably just your body reacting to being sick.  DH lost 5 or 6 lbs when he was sick a couple of weeks ago but it all came right back as soon as he was better.

You were under the weather, so it’s a bit normal for your body to deal with it in strange (to you) ways.

If it doesn’t improve in a few weeks, go to the Dr. and get some bloodwork done – request that they check out all of your thyroid hormone levels.

i’d say a combination of being sick and dehydrated.  the pina colada things are probably very high in sodium as well.

also, sick weight loss isn’t real weight loss.  as soon as you are healthy again, it typically comes right back on.

i weigh myself many mornings before long bike rides to see how dehydated i get from the heat.

i’ve lost 3-5 pounds in a day, espeically on 100 mile bike rides in the summer despite drinking and eating.
