i unfortunately developed my ibs-c from having an eating disorder since i was 13 (i'm now 21). my greatest problem having ibs is i have been gaining so much weight. i can't take it. i can't exercise b/c i'm so tired and about 10 mins. into anything my stomach burns and i MUST get to a bathroom, not just for the use but the cramping is horrible! i'm in my first year of being married and it's really hurting our life together. lets just say my selfesteem is hurting him too. i really need some advice/tips/something. i hope someone has some direction for me.thanks for listening!carla

Carla, having an eating disorder makes your life more complicated. For weight loss that is sensible, I highly recommend Weight Watchers. For me it was an easy-to-understand program and I've kept the weight off for 4 years. I've had IBS-C for 32 years.Exercise is so important. I know you're tired, but actually exercise energizes you. It may sound strange, but exercise is really great for you and gives you more energy.
