Thread: sun burn

    sun burn

    I read an older post about a burn causing a gain or stall.
    Can a sun burn cause a low loss?
    I totally burned yesterday, I did lose a pound, but was hoping for more this early on; R2P2D6
    I am thankful for my one pound, just curious.

    Oh yes! You retain water when you burn. This causes the weight gain.

    You may take aspirin for the pain if you wish. Hang in there.

    Anything that impacts the skin in terms of a burn is going to force your largest organ (the skin) to absorb and retain as much water as possible to heal it. I once registered a 3.6 pound gain in a maintenance phase due to burning two small areas on my hand grabbing a hot pan without a proper pot holder. The good news is that it is only temporary and usually flushed out 24 to 72 hours after the burn. Consider it a temporary bump in the road.
