Thanks Dolly! Yes I agree - and also (touch wood) my crohn's has settled remarkably well with no adverse reactions to eating a larger amount of vegies, wholemeal bread, fruit etc - which a few years ago I was told to avoid!!
So all in all I am happy wih the results of general health and well of curse looking slimmer!
Even my GI is amazed that the weight came off after having to have so many meds to try and keep this crohns at a healthier level. The pills that I am on I will be on for the rest of my life and these are the very pills that gain weight and supposedly hard to get the weight back off again. It's great to prove the sceptics wrong
My aim now is to lose another maybe 3 kilos and then maintain that weight. I have been a little naughty in some respects, like eating chocolate and cakes (in sensible portions) but then the next day I won't eat any thing that is likely to add the extra weight!
