Ahh spark people, I am in a bad way. I feel like I have been away forever.
I have been in and out of hospital with tummy pain and problems. I have reduced down my steroids to almost nothing, so that tests can be re-done. My joints symptoms have all come out, and to add to the Crohn's I have been diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis. That sucks a bit.
I have worked from home for over two months. Some days I can barely get out of bed from the pain of everything. Stuff is HARD.
But anyway, that's not why I'm here. I'm here because I have gained so much weight it is scary. I almost back to where I was years ago when I started losing weight. I have done what I swore never to do :(.
I have been eating my feelings far too much.
But I'm changing it now. I'm going to start swimming, because my rheumatologist says that will be good for the AS. I'm going to stop the comfort eating and get back into good habits.
I'm not going to count calories, because cutting the comfort eating is more important than meeting a calorie goal to start with, so as of tomorrow I am going to keep a food diary here.
