I am recovering from some sort of really nasty flu virus. I don't think I've ever been that sick before. You don't need (or want) details, just know it was bad.
But after 6 hours of vilently purging my body of everything I had consumed over the previous 24 hours...followed by 36 hours of virtually uniterrupted sleep, I woke up to realize that I lost 2 days of my life along with 5 pounds.
Trust me, there are better ways to lose weight!
