Hi Karen, and answers to your questions....
      04/12/05 01:30 PM

Thanks for replying!

I'm severe asthmatic, 1/8 of my lungs are scar tissue and I blow a 400 MAX. But, I'm very stable. My doctors have alwways been amazed at how well I do despite how bad my asthma is. I refuse to take more than 2 puffs a day of my Symbicort. I believe that Symbicort has helped me gain the weight, though. I was a size 5 in high school 10 years ago. I think I'm one of those freak cases, that is the "un-statistic" that actually gains on these inhaled steroids too. My doctor agrees. So far i've had no luck in explaining it.

I do Fit Day too, lol. It helps. The diary has been an amazing outlet for me. See, here's my problem. i went to the gym 3x a week for 4 months last year and never lost a pound. I was working up to the point of attacks alomst every day too. It was awful! I do a lot of walking, try to get it in every other day.I was a waitress for ten years, too. Never lost a pound when i went back this summer to it either.

But so far, because of Prednisone doses I get once or twice a year, I have not lost much. I actually gained ten pounds in ONE DAY because of it last summer. Scary, huh? It seems much more difficult to peel off the weight for me, even if I'm dieting, which I was, and working out religiously for me, which i was.

But I have a feeling about this Heather weay of life, and that it just might work. Who knows how complex IBS-C is? Maybe this is just what I need. Maybe my whole system is out of balance due to eating all the wrong things all along. i've done low carb, and low calorie, etc, and nothings worked. in fact, i was gaining on whole grains.

Keep your fingers crossed. Please!!

Sorry to hear you have Crohn's. it sounds rotten! Does Heather's way help you a lot?

Keep on keepin' on...
