    I'v been losing weight lately .. part of it because of my sickness that prevented me from eating right and from excersising ..

    but it's so frustrating to see all the pounds that I worked hard , spent time and money for them just dissapear ..

    and I have to start all the way over again..

    Sorry to hear that GHostA. The more important question, are you feeling better? The weight will come back, but your overall health is more critical. You are too young to be sick.

    I've been going through something similar since I had my hernia repaired. It has felt so frustrating to lose about 10 - 15 pounds, knowing it took me 5 months to put on that muscle and take off that fat.
    The main consolation for me has been, as JBE also pointed out, that the weight will come back.

    You've got your health and time enough to gain all that poundage back.

    When I saw the thread title, I clicked expecting to congratulate you on the weight loss. But, if you're trying to gain weight, sorry to hear you're losing it. I know what that's like, but in reverse. I injured my Achilles a little over a month ago and I was terrified the weight I spent countless hours and dollars working off would come right back.

    Good luck on the road back. Hopefully it is easier to get back the second time around. icon_smile.gif

    I know it sucks when you have a sickness or have to be away from the gym for any length of time
    and your efforts seem to go away so quickly

    but there's good news
    Your body has a good memory
    and when you DO get back to the gym you'll be as good as new in no time
    You'll be shocked how fast you get back to normal

    Hey, sexy above me, I don't think a mild case of food poisoning lasting a few days would cause enough muscle loss to be worth mentioning. GHOSTA referred to it as "a sickness," noone refers to mild food poisoning that way.

    Oh, I get it....don't worry more than....you'd never get "food poisoning" from eating at my establishment.icon_wink.gif

    I had been training very hard in a sport for a few years and weighed about 165. Then I got sick and dropped to 115. I was very disheartened and never really got back into the sport, since the last few months I was training and competing were pretty painful. But, I got into weightlifting two years ago, love training hard, and am up to 180 and am in the best shape of my life.

    So, while you are feeling down now just stay focused on getting your body where you need it to be. I mean, look at Caslon. The man was fighting cancer and he has lats you can land a plane on. Keep at it!

    115? Jeez MZ I am sorry to hear that, were you still visible?

    It took me about 6 months to gain back the weight I loss from hepatitis. I went from 137 to 173 (too high mind you).

    GHostA as long as you are eating properly and getting back to you workout routine I wouldn't fret too much. Besides you are at least trying to gain weight, most people I know are fighting the opposite battle (and not that successfully).
