Huge accidental weight loss

Huge accidental weight loss

I had a bad Christmas I was unwell, but it was at my own hands. I have a problem with Beef, it used to be that minced beef would go through me like there was no tomorrow, then I found out the hard way it was any beef product that was having the same effect so I do tend to avoid beef like the plague.

A friend who was coming here for Xmas lunch offered me a nice jar of beef dripping/fat to cook the roast potatoes and roast parsnips in, I never gave it another thought and accepted it and cooked both veg in the said beef fat, it was about 2 hours after dinner that I started to notice problems, those problems lasted best part of five days and nights.

I did nearly floor my weight watchers leader, all she could say was "no way" I even forgot to take my phone out of my pocket, my weight loss for Christmas week - a massive 12 lbs , not a way I would normally recommended to loose weight but as another friend put it "every cloud has a silver lining"

So that's 75.5 lbs gone so far

Ooo it's amazing that when we have an allergy like that, that we forget about those additional products that contain them - Hope you are feeling better now :)

Well done on your total weight loss - I hope that now going back to eating healthily minus beef products you don't put some of that weight back on :)

Wishing you a great 2018 :)

Yes I realised that but those 12 lbs represent a lot of blood sweat and tears so to speak and after all that I went through I'm not going to be a happy bunny if I put any back on, we shall see I suspect

Happy New Year to you all.
