In a stall for two months. Not gaining is winning (on the weight loss battle field ;-)!

I was in a stall since November.
Had a bad flu, my asthma kicked in (I was almost free of it since 2011) and while I was happy to be able to stay away from antibiotics, I still had to take my asthma medication for several weeks.
At the same time I've been in a stall since November, didn't pay attention for a few weeks, then realized in December that it was indeed again a side effect of the medication.
In 2011 when I had the worst issues with my lungs (asthma/pneumonia for months) I gained 35 pounds in a few DAYS. I was not eating much being so sick and I knew my asthma medication always made me gain weight, but that time was worth because I was also under 3 or 4 rounds of strong antibiotics in a row.
This time (thanks to my sleeve!) I didn't gain anything but I was not losing at all either and that was really frustrating. I tried to breeze and each time I was feeling stressed, remember about 2011.
I exercised a lot during my one week in Japan late December, was eating more protein than usual and nothing happened! The medication was still in my system and took it's sweet time to clear!
This morning, the scale FINALLY moved! It's only one pound, but after a two months stall it feels really good!
