I've been in this "pseudo" flare since the end of February. I looked at a picture of myself from back in October and I've definitely shed some pounds. I've noticed though that lately more people are making comments about
how thin I look.
Is it possible to lose weight if you aren't experiencing diarrhea or loss of appetite? My BMs are not out of control and I'm still eating about the same amount of food. Most of my inflammation is in the rectum so I don't see how that could contribute to weight loss.
Anyone have any insight?
PS- I have been working out twice a week since October and also stopped drinking any beverages with sugar (I basically only drink water) which I know accounts for some of the weight loss, but I feel like I've lost more since Feb than I did the months prior to the flare starting.
