    How fast do you lose muscle?

    Today's monday, and i've been sick since saturday. i took sun and mon off, and probably gonna take tues and wed off so i can come back full health.

    Right now i'm the best i've ever been. Am i gonna lose it? its only been 2 days off and i already feel smaller. i havent been as hungry (and usually i am never not hungry) even though im forcing myself to eat.

    i feel tiny now, most of it is prob psychological. but someone please reasure me......

    you have lost water weight, and your glycogen stores are probably depleted, atrophy does not occur that quickly.

    I know how ya feel bud. Just think, I had my heart set on competing next saturday and the saturday after that. Such a let down. Always something.

    I know one thing. I'm back in the game and going to kick some friggin arse tonight and for the next two weeks. I'm doing one of those comps. All those nights in the sauna, sweating my arse off and I gain the crap back. ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

    Does this mean you're not competing? What happened? I thought you were really close.

    I was sooo close. I don't know. I'll have my b/f taken this evening. I've been eating soup and drinking sprite to get better plus eating oranges. This medicine I'm on is making me bloat and giving me stomach problems, nitemares, nasty taste in my mouth. I'm stopping it tomorrow. I read that all these are serious side effects and I should consult my doctor. I've done that and I'm waiting for him to call me back.

    This is a natural show and I doubt diuretics are allowed. I know that would help me out a lot and I have a doctor friend that would supply the prescription. I just don't want to bring the wrong message on stage because another reason why I do figure is to show people, you can do it naturally and you can make changes, etc....
