I’ve been weight stable for about a year after gaining about 40 pounds after dieting. A month ago I got ill with a throat thing. I didn’t eat much for a week or so due to fever then sore throat. I lost about 10 pounds, the surprising thing is that I have not gained the weight back as I usually do after being ill. Best of all the weight came off of my belly (though I did lose some strength), so I am enjoying the flatter tummy. Hopefully it will continue last, but it makes me think that further fat loss and stabilization at a lower weight may be possible.
