I really feel for you. I too have battled with my weight for years. I am approx 4 - 5 stone overweight. My consultant describes me as having moderate to severe crohns. I am currently on Infliximab to keep my crohns under control. Basically if I come off it I go in2 huge flare up and am in terrible pain
I never ever lose weight no matter how many times I go to the loo, sometimes 15 times per day. I have been trying to lose since Xmas and it has taken me over 3 months to lose 8lb and that is only because I am exercising (feeling the best i have for years and long may it continue)
Remember it is about how well you feel and how much you can enjoy life. So what if you are a bit chubby. Just make the best of what you have, wear nice clothes, use make up, treat yourself to massage, pedicure. make yourself feel special. When I feel fat and ugly and see a skinny girl - i think well they dont have to go through what I go through everyday.
Good luck, be strong and love yourself the way you are
I believe I was given crohns because I am strong enough to cope
