Well, they say there is always a bright side to every bad situation in life.  My husband and I both gained about 18 lbs when we quit smoking.  I'm the one the contracted UC w/ my quit.  Yesterday was a terrible day for me - I was only able to eat a small serving of mashed potatoes.  The bright side of this terrible disease is that I am losing the weight I gained when I quit smoking.  Lost another lb yesterday.  Now what more could I ask for!
I hope you all have a wonderful day and let's pray my Jim (dh) makes thru his cleansing today for his first scope in the a.m.  LOL I scheduled it for 7:20 a.m. that was the earliest we could get in!

Good luck to your hubby with his scope! My hubbys name is Jim too btw :)

Losing weight when you need to can be a good thing but keep an eye on your weight loss. You don't want to lose TOO much. I went to a former family doc and I had my blood tested for cholesterol. This doc jokingly said, well there is a bright side to having Uc now isn't there?? At least your cholesterol is great and your weight is under control! Noticed how I mentioned she was my FORMER doc?? lol

LOL I can understand how she was a "former doc" Fortunately I have never had problems w/ cholestrol. I am enjoying this weight loss for now even tho this is truly NOT the way I wanted to lose it. I feel best at 125 - 130. I did get excited, I can still fit my bum into my jeans. Had the nerve to try them on today. If I get below 125 then I will be talking w/ the doc - but at 139 I have a ways to go! I knew I liked you - we both have Jim's ! LOL And by the way, my Jim is doing great!

I lost around 30 pounds last year because of a flare and because i stopped taking prednisone, but losing weight this way isnt exactly the healthiest way..
