If you’re going to be able to look back on something and laugh about it, you might as well laugh about it now.

I'm not on any steroids so I can't help you with that. But I did want to say Hi and welcome to the team.

Hi Lisa. Welcome to SP! I was on prednisone for 3 years, and I gained a bunch of weight. I didn't lose the weight until I got off the pred. But then, I didn't really try so I don't know really how hard it is to do. It will definitely involve becoming more active, even if it's only in small increments.

I have had RA for 14 yrs, and have slowly gained much weight over the years. I am on cortisone and find that hard to loose. Are there others like this? Is it possible to loss while on this nasty drug?
Hope to chat with you all regularly.


It's possible!
