Well, I'd say to celebrate it, but be aware that it may come back in the next few days!  I hate that that's how it goes, but inevitably, in my experience, pounds lost while sick always come back.  Hate 'em!  LOL  Glad you're feeling better, though!  =)

Well I'd be lying if I said I didn't lose any of my total weight loss over the last year due to stress or illness. I celebrated it figuring hey, I just spent 3 days feeling miserable I'm going to enjoy the good that came from it. So long as you're not making yourself sick it's all good

Even if not taking into consideration the 5lbs that put you over, the 15lb loss is still a great achievement.  So, Congrats either way! :)

Yeah, I figure at least half of it will come back but I will take anything I can get. 8D

When I smoked, I lost weight when stressed. Now, I just stuff my face.
