I am at wit's end. I put on about 30lbs from prednisone that I had to take during cancer treatment. I'm EXTREMELY thankful to be alive, but I'm depressed about the weight gain. The prednisone weight will come off eventually, but I have to wait until my metabolism wakes up. Who knows when that will be? It will probably happen sometime between May and November, based on when I stopped taking it. Yeah, big date range. Per dr's orders, I'm also not allowed to go on any diets, I have to take in a minimum of 1,400 calories a day, and I can work out, but only to what my body can handle. Right now, my body is still recovering from being pumped full of poison for 4 months.
Anyway- has anyone else here been in the situation where they gained weight from medication and couldn't really do anything about it? It's hard to stay motivated when you work your butt off and nothing happens. I'm trying to find inspiration. TIA!
