gumby, I too have had comments about me being overweight and having CD. People sometimes ask me why I am not thin. I am one of the lucky ones that gains weight. My Dr said it could be a survival instinct my body tries to hold on to my weight because it is afraid it is going to starve when the food runs right through me... I am not sure if he is right or not.
Weight is such a sensitive issue, i wish people would realize that!
