New problem: weight gain

I’ve never been a heavy guy. In fact, it’s been almost impossible for me to gain much weight. Ever since I was little, I’ve been skinny. I’ve never been much over 135, despite being almost six feet tall. And over the last few years, even during the “good” times, I haven’t been able to get over 115. I would just get to that and plateau out, no matter how much I ate.

But now I’m pushing 150. It’s a new problem. I’m going to have to buy new clothes and start exercising soon. I might even have to start watching how much I eat, since I now seem to be able to eat as much as I want. What a difference!

My doctor said that rapid weight gain was one of the things that you had to watch out for after getting an ileostomy as it could cause problems, but I thought it would never be something I would have to worry about. I guess he was right. I’m not worried about it being a problem since it’s not wildly out of control, but it’s sort of a fun new problem to have since it was always more of a problem the other way.
