Normal/perfect weight for me is around 157 at 5'7" and big boned. That's about
what I weigh now in my best health in the last 10 years.
On the low carb diet that cured my UC I originally lost a few more pounds. I don't care about
weight except as an indicator of my health. Before UC I never went on any diet and was happy with my weight.
The question should/could have been: How many clothes sizes do you have in your closet due entirely to UC. My answer: three. Sizes 10-12 and 14. Right now I am in the 12's, right where I want to be
