I have the secret, though I wouldn't recommend it: get a stomach bug which doesn't allow you to keep anything down, not even Powerade. And losing these three pounds puts me 1.5 pounds away from my goal weight. Wow! So there's the secret folks.
Now that I'm feeling better (weak, but able to drink Powerade and eat saltines), all I want is some of the healing goodness of McDonald's Chicken McNuggets dipped in honey. I'm not sure of the origin of this "need" but when I'm not feeling good all I want are chicken mcnuggets. The sad thing is that our car is in the shop, and there are no McDonald's within walking distance (not that I could walk there anyway). Sad. So sad.
So I'm whining about not being able to get my nuggets and honey when there are worse things that I could be going through. With that realization I'll end it there.
The secret to rapid weight loss is unpleasant and not healthy, but losing 3 pounds in one day is possible. Keeping it off is a whole different story.
