Mucus Build-up?

I'm a wrestler who must watch his weight, but have recently gotten a terrible cold and a small sore throat. This has led me to wonder if blowing your nose as often as i have been has any effect on your weight. i guess what i'm asking is that is mucus made up of cells already in your body system or does it get created anew?

    The mucus membranes are already there, but when you get a cold your body produces more than normal, trying to flush the germs out of your body. I really don't think it will cause you to lose weight, being sick and the lack of an appetite probably will.
