Got to weigh myself again after the whole lymphoma scare and i only weigh 128 lbs. I havent been this light afterva flare for years. However i also did not use prednisone this time. I have been doing well for over a month but havent put any weight back on. Gotta figure something out because summer is approaching and i cant do The Pride Parade looking like a resurected MUMMY!

I remember when I got super thin when I was first diagnosed, I looked like Skelator. It doesn't make you feel real HOT when your so thin does it???? Hope your able to gain some weight soon so you look fabulous and HOT and sexy this summer:)

I always have to bulk up because any flare I have had has left me thin. I eat large amounts of peanut butter and anything that can quickly put on weight. Bacon, ribs, any fatty meat will bulk you up as well.
