You are right, Christ will always strengthen us! I love your attitude. It makes me feel like I can do it too.

I have been on up to 70 mg per day and it makes me hungry and nervous. I hate to take it but I have to. I am glad to hear I can still lose some weight on it. Thanks.

They always put me on predisone. It makes the walls look tasty. I seem to retain water weight with it too( I think it bloats me). I'm on a very small dose this time 5 grams every other day. My doctor's hoping to stave off the upper respetory infections I get every year. I have been loosing weight even on it;so, keep trying!

I don't like taking steroids either but when I have to - I ask my doctor to try and limit the days and how many pills I have to take, which he has done and what I do take still helps me with my asthma issue.

Keep up with your work outs & your nutrition plan to keep you focus. Hang in there and you can do it. emoticon

It never fails, I start on a GREAT loss streak and the next thing I know my asthma flairs, I'm on steroids and it is like a magnet for weight. I make a conscious effort to not eat more foods or fluids but it doesn't seem to matter. I just take comfort in knowing that it will fall off again once I get off the steroids. Hang in there.

How has your calorie intake been? Steroids always make me want to eat and eat so I gain weight. Could be some fluid retention as well. You should be able to tell if your swelled any.

Today I was so excited to weigh in but ouch! I gained 2 lbs! Do you think the Rx steroids that I have been taking for 10 can cause me to gain weight? I should be losing with all of the exercise I have been doing since I felt better, but wait, I also didn't exercise during the first few days when the asthma attack started but I hardly ate also, hmmm, is it a mixture of it all? Anyone have experience with this?

Hugs
