Welcome to the forum Jenn !!
Earlier today, I bumped up a topic titled: "Do you all know what trigers your CD flares??" There is some info in there that might be helpful.
I'm not sure how WW would cause a flare since you get to choose your own menu . . . so that's a bit confusing. But the walking "can" cause trouble IF you are already inflamed. . . so you might want to rethink exertion while you are in a flare.
*sigh* Some of the meds aren't friendly to our weight . . . so we just have to be extremely aware of everything we eat vs. how much less we are able to be active. Its the old calories in/calories out dilemma. If you have water weight, you can watch the sodium in foods. Most prepared foods are WAY higher than those you prepare yourself. Cans, boxes, mixes, prepared frozen meals . . . are almost all OD'd with sodium. If you can tolerate fruit and veggies (some here can't) they work well to help with appetite control as does getting enough water. I struggle with my weight too and for me it is mostly a mental game. *sigh*
Glad you found us!! I'm sure some of the others will have much more help.
