Well, as a former work out fanatic, I wouldn't worry too much about the muscles starting to show, it's because you are losing weight and there is not as much of a layer of fat covering them up. But, the losing weight you want to keep an eye on.. It could be because of your U/C and if it is, you want to take measures to prevent yourself from losing too much weight. When I first got diagnosed, I lost a bunch of weight because of the shock of finding out I had a lifelong disease and going through the learning process of how to deal with it... Unless you continue losing weight, don't worry too much, that could just exaserbate your U/C. Try and eat more carbs and easy to digest foods. When I had lost a bunch of weight and had to gain it back, I added ensure to my diet and I would drink 3 of those a day and over the period of about a year, I gained back what I had lost.
