I am in remission right now and near the same age as you. I can tell you that now that I am feeling better I weigh more than I have in years. Still not considered overweight, but it is about 15-20 lbs more than I am use to. I accept this because as mentioned above, because you never know when you will get sick again and lose alot of weight. To be honest also, as you get older you do tend to gain weight easier and its harder to get off.
Its kinda wierd too, because I don't eat alot. When my husband and I go out to eat, 9 times out of 10 we share a plate. A plate for each of us would just be too much food for either of us. My weight has stayed the same for about the 6-8 months too. Hmm....
