Welcome to the team. Steroids are hard on our bodies and cause weight gain. That gain is sometimes hard to take back off. Rather than focusing on a scale, you did the next best thing by taking measurements. We've all lost and gained the same 5, 10, 20 pounds or more. Now that you have a starting weight and measurements...stay away from the scale and tape measure for a few weeks. Focus on healthy eating, logging all food...even slip ups and getting some exercise in. Start small, if needed, with 10min a day and gradually increase. You'll see and feel things improving. Then..maybe in a month or even 6 weeks...weigh yourself again and take another set of measurements.
Change up your exercise too. Instead of walking on the tmill, switch to a bike or elliptical. Add some weights. The body gets bored if we do the same routine and we see the weight loss slow down or stop. If you stick with the tmill, try interval training...increase the incline every minute or so to increase intensity. There are articles on SP about interval training.
Above all...just keep working at it. It takes awhile to recover from illness and/or surgery.
And ask your dietician if you are eating enough for the level of activity you are doing. The more we are working out, the more important it is to make sure we are eating enough to fuel our bodies.
Don't give up....
Its not a diet, it's a way of life!
