Losing weight safely


I started my diet on the 2nd January and weighed in at 11 st 2lb. About the middle of the month I started to feel unwell and a week ago today I was admitted to hospital with pneumonia, I came home on Wednesday this week.
In total I am not sure how much weight I have lost, over a stone anyway but I had weighed myself on my partner`s scales and he has hidden them now.
I was size 12/14 but now I can fit into my size 10 skirts that I haven`t worn for years.
Now I can`t help but wonder if my immune system was low because I lost weight so quickly, even before I became ill. I had had the pheumonia innoculation and didn`t think I could still get it. Anyway I just wanted to say that even though I am now so slim, it really is not the way to lose weight. Be careful ladies, look after yourselves, especially if you dieting. Lose weight over time, just think a pound a week is 52 pounds a year and lots of people don`t have anywhere near that weight to lose.

Ah you poor thing

You might find as you recover more you add some weight back on which would be normal. You must still feel a little rough but I'm sure glad to be home.

Even those with a strong immune can get caught out. Pneumonia can follow on from the cold/flu. I've had pleurisy before and it wasn't nice either.
