My doctor told me not to gain anymore weight as I am already overweight. I'm 5'5" and 205, female. I have given up chips and cut down on my chocolate, except for Valentine's week. Yet I have only gained three pounds.
I was use to eating more when my UC had everything moving through me and made me hungry all the time.
I tried eating oranges, can't as I am missing some back teeth so I can't chew them up enough and they were getting stuck in my stoma. Loved those little halo ones.
I think I gained a few pounds because I keep eating stuff to thicken my output. So now I don't know what to do. The doctor really wanted me to lose some in order to have my next surgery( the J-pouch). I have until I see him in April.
I have even cut down on the amount I eat and what I eat. I figured with my bag, It would be easier to lose. I want surgery so I can get rid of this bag. He'll do it, but he said the more I weigh the riskier the surgery is.
Any ideas that have helped you guys?
Yes I need to get walking, but it's been so cold out.
