i aways found i had the opposite problem with wait i hated it because it was too thin i was so skinning it was discusting however after my last opp im doing much better im about 62kg the most ive ever weighed in my life and i got boobs which i couldnt be more happy about. at firs though it was a little upsetting even when i was skinny i was teased for it now ive put on weight i still do (some people) however i look and feel healthy which is the main thing i still eat well and excercise and ill amit im a little chunky but doing so much better then i use too. i would talk to your doctors about the atkins diet though ive heard it can be great for people with crohns and diebetics. Its pretty "hard core" though my dad was on it and lost 7kgs in a week which i dont think is a very good thing. but it does work for alot of people good luck anyway i hope all goes well and you learn to love yourself for however u our again.

katester, I am a very overweight chronie! I am right there with you....I feel the same pain. So hard to lose weight when so many good for me foods make me sick.
I started riding a bike for my first step to weight loss. I expect this to be a real long journey for me nothing seems to work. My joint pain limits that some too.
MMNAVY, you are right we have to love ourselves.
Jen, i am going to look at sparkpeople now
