It's a while since anyone posted on this particular thread,so I was just wondering how you're all doing ? It would be nice to think you're all doing well,but I think that's a wee bit unrealistic.

Me too! In remission but still get bad days here and there...yesterday was not a good day, but today is much better. Spent so many years trying to put on weight and now am trying to lose some! So much harder when I can't eat too much roughage (healthy fiber rich foods) and when too much exercise really does me in. But I have lost 5lbs so far!

Glad to hear others are doing well too. Happy 4th of July to my fellow Americans! I will be relaxing at home trying to keep the dogs occupied so they don't freak out over fireworks tonight. Last night the neighbors set off a few and I had all 3 dogs huddled in the bed with me!

Teeny,I empathise with the dog / firework problem.I was told it's best to ignore them or they think,if you cuddle them,they're getting rewarded for being scared.But it's so hard.I used to be ill with worry about them come Guy Fawkes.It's only one night but the fireworks went off for a fortnight.
Good on you for your weight loss.I sometimes think a bit of extra weight comes in handy for the "bad" times.

After I had my first flare and lost 34 pounds, I remember my wife saying that a little extra weight might be good.

My GI had me eating what I could three meals a day, plus drinking an Ensure 3 times a day. I got to my normal weight, but then once I could eat normal again kind of pigged out! Trying to get back to a healthy weight. My GI encourages me to be as healthy as possible with diet and exercise. He believes because our bodies are fighting the disease we should strive to be in good health to give our body every advantage possible. He's good about giving suggestions based on whether I am flaring or not. I feel best when I am about 10lbs lighter than I am currently. The extra weight was putting pressure on my hips, back and knees. I can only do light exercises, but seems to still help with stress.
