In brief: Normal?

No it is not normal to have gastritis.
This may influence what you are able to eat. You may not be able to eat the foods you like or want, especially if they contributed to the gastritis. The antibiotics may also blunt your appetite . You should talk to your doctor as continuing to lose weight is not necessarily a good thing.
