Can anyone advise how IBS affects weigh in?

I am trying to lose weight but suffer from IBS and do not pass waste regularly. Sometimes it may be as much as 3 weeks without so much as a rabbit poo! I am weighing myself weekly but i need to know how this constipation affects weigh ins. Not only is it very dejecting to see no loss it is also too easy to explain away a gain!!! If anyone can advise on this it'd be greatly appreciated!

I have IBS and the best thing i can suggest is Peppermint Tea and lots of it. If i'm suffering i have pure peppermint tea with every meal - it aids digestion and i notice a difference!

If i'm having a particularly bad week i tell my consultant at WI and she writes it on my form. I think the most important thing to do is see your doctor for some Movicol or something...

Good Luck :)
