I'm never going to lose this weight. I gained the weight on prednisone from my last flare. Kept it on for 6 years. Finally got serious about
losing it, went on a high-protein diet, and it flared back up. So I've been eating not-so-healthy foods, but it's depressing me. I seem to only be able to eat spaghettios.
So today I had tilapia (fish) and zucchini (cooked to a mushy state). Thirty minutes later, I started having the pain. How will I ever lose this weight if I can't eat healthy? The CD is in the colon, so being in a flare doesn't cause weight loss for me. I was doing so well going to the gym daily, but now I'm too tired and weak to even go.
Stupid as it sounds, I'm tempted to just keep eating the healthy food and get the weight off, then worry about
the crohn's. But with 80 more pounds to lose (I lost 30 before the flare got bad enough to stop), it could take months. Which could do a lot of damage. But I'm SO freakin sick and tired of being fat.
