Hi there,
I was just wondering if I could ask you a few questions...
I have been having a really hard time with my weight lately. When I was really sick with my IBS about a year ago I lost loads of weight without really noticing it because I wasn't doing it on purpose. My weight dropped from about 140 to about 125 lbs.
Once I got more stable, and could eat stuff other than rice I gained back the weight I'd lost over the past several months _really_ rapidly. Like, I think I gained about 12 lbs in 3 weeks and then kept going up from there.
Ever since, my weight has basically been slowly increasing and increasing. I have been counting calories, my budget usually seems to be around 1300-1500 calories.. but then I see that might not be wise. I am exercising more (mostly cardio) and yet my weight continues to slowly climb upwards.
I am now up to 163 lbs and I am really unhappy about all this weight gain but I feel lost for what I should do now. I feel like I eat fairly healthy food (way more healthy than I ever did before) but my weight has never gone above 140 lbs before and I feel really uncomfortable in my own body.

What should I do? Should I eat more? Eat less? I don't get it.
I am on two anti-depressants (one of which hasn't helped me at all and I really want to go off but my doc says it's a bad idea), and medication for Colitis which apparently can all effect your weight. Does this mean I should eat even less?
I feel so confused.
Any suggestions would be great!!
Thanks so much if you read this!
--Steph
