201.2...or 202.6

I weighed myself twice this week - yesterday and today. The Thursday number was 202.6, down 0.6 pounds from last week. I wasn't sure I trusted that number, though, because I weighed myself later in the day than usual and had been swilling ungodly amounts of water all morning. The Friday measurement of 201.2, down 2.0 pounds from last week, seems a little more in line with what I expected.

I was actually expecting to be down more than average this week because I spent most of it on a time-honored weight-loss system known as "the flu." I actually registered fevers of over 101 degrees on both Sunday and Thursday, with a brief reprive on Tuesday. It's the sickest I've been in a long time. This was probably canceled out by the fact that I didn't really feel up to doing any real exercise most of the week.

On the up side, I discovered that a cup of low-sodium Progresso chicken noodle soup only has 12g of carbohydrates and 1g of fiber. My other two primary foods, diet ginger ale and Advil, were zero in both.
