How to lose five pounds in four days:

1. Get sick. Preferably by taking care of your sick kiddo for a few days in a row.

2. While taking care of your sick kiddo, have him bounce back as though he has fully recovered and it’s okay to go to the soccer game. Where it downpours rain and sleet. And then his sickness comes raging back.

3. Have the sickness overrun your family, they are too sick to eat so little food is cooked, everyone just snacks, if they can even swallow.

4. Drink lots of water because you are nursing your baby and have to at least attempt to keep the breastmilk supply up.

5. Eat at least one meal a day, however small it is.

6. Jump on the scale on the morning of day 4 – BAM 5 pounds gone!

7. In the afternoon of day 4 realize you are almost recovered. What adds to this realization is your stomach growling LOUDLY multiple times in an hour. Eat whatever is around because hey, you just lost five pounds!

*Obviously none of this is recommended – however, it is what I went through this past week!
