Re: body image issues

I know exactly how you feel! I am only 25 and I weigh 145 a flat stomach on good days! Sometimes I feel fat! actually it is all of the time. It is because of the bloating, When I am in the shower or in front of the mirror, I don't even want to look! I am going on a houseboat with my husband and some friends in july and I am scared of looking fat!! I am taking digestive enzymes and a probiotic and trying to eat well although sometimes it is hard to do! I am going to the gym, sometimes it is hard to work out because I look 5 months pregnant!!!!! I have ibs c/d. Don't give up! It sucks big time but try and hang in there. It is so very frustrating and sometimes I feel like crying but you have to keep a positive attitude even though it is hard. Just keep trying differant things and ways to help yourself. You will get through this!!! we all will
