Many of you know my wife can sew and blip up clothes like there is no tomorrow.  Sadly, I have lost over 80 pounds being on surgery and in flare.  Well, I tried my clothes on last night - mostly pants.  And she said I have lost too much weight and inches to alter them.
I have a sneaking suspicion she is going to try measuring me for some new clothes.
I am down to 208 lbs at 6'8"tall.  I am trying to gain wait, but I just can't seem to stop losing weight.  Lactose intolerant, so those shakes are out of the question - and those protein shakes that are non dairy I can't stomach.
Anyway, Swimming in my pants now
love to all here

What about a homemade shake with either Lactaid lactose-free milk or soy milk as the base? You can mix in banana or other tolerated fruit, frozen yogurt or soy dessert, etc. to thicken it. Hey, the prospect of new clothes sounds good! Soon there could be a chic new you & the lost pounds may end up beneficial to your knees & lower limbs as you get to walk more.

I second the Lactaid suggestion!  Throw in some ice, a banana, and some chocolate syrup or peanut butter.  YUM!  Lactaid is kinda thick and sweet anyway, so I bet it would make a good smoothie.  Good luck with your weight.  I hope you're able to feel stronger soon!

Bob, may I suggest you take primadophilus reuteri probiotics, they have guaranteed intestinal release and aid with high cholesterol as well as LACTOSE INTOLERANCE and I swear by them, my lactose issues are completely resolved...but it's key that you take the probiotics daily and can also have yogurt smoothies...avocados can also help you gain weight if you can tolerate eating them...just a note on yogurt, the lactose is already broken down so it will not bother your gut....infact the live bacterial cultures in yogurt will likely help your gut.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it! LOL :)
