I am just so fed up with myself! I've got IBSc almost constantly or at the very least I have a few days off here and there. I am constantly bloated and in pain and my weight is really getting me down. I have been trying to diet for about 4 or 5 weeks. I have been losing a few pounds and last week when I weighed I'd lost about 7 pounds. Went out and bought myself a new pair of trousers as feeling really pleased with myself, just tried them on and although they fit, they don't fit as good as when I bought them. Last week they were looser around my abdomen and now they look and feel tight. I have still been dieting and can't possibly find another answer to this weight re-appearing (just weighed and the 7pounds are back!) This has happened year after year. I find it really hard to lose weight and usually just give up. I know I am very bloated and have only had 2 very small BM in 6 days so I'm assuming that this is going to make me feel heavier as I've got all this #### inside me butI am feeling so despondent and very down about all this and just feel like having a bloody good cry although I don't think feeling sorry for myself will help.I am waiting to see a dietrican but on the NHS it's probably going to take months. Please someone tell me I'm not going mad and using IBS as an excuse?
