HAVE LOUD, RADICAL FAITH IN THE SCREAMING SILENCE!

I have 2 beautiful grandchidren that I want to play with and enjoy for a long time to come. I also want to feel and look the best I can. My main issues in maintaining health and battling weight loss has been related to a diagnosis of a chronic autoimmune disease, Ulcerative colitis in'87, with j-pouch surgery in '90. Then another diagnosis of Crohns disease in 2000. I take daily meds and this terrible disease goes in and out of remission. Because of constant diarrhea issues, it is difficult for me to workout at a gym or in the outdoors (which I love). Depression can also be a constant companion. I am hopeful that a new med I am taking will improve my lifestyle. The opportunity to run, walk, or hike for long distances would be a gift.

Hello to a fellow j-poucher and Nana keeping the weight off! There used to be a jpouch group but so small it got erased because of inactivity. Also the two ostomy groups might get zapped because everyone is so busy. I have beat you on the years...now 60 this year but active and healthy.

Thanks for the comment Denise! Ya, I'm very very very SLOWLY getting past my sugar cravings. I still get them, but try to let them ease with a sugar free pudding or something.

Oh well. :)
