View Full Version : Dieting while on Steriods

11-01-03, 05:31 PM
I have been having such a hard time lately trying to lose weight part of it is motivation but another part is the steriods I'm on for a rare blood condition.

I have to take the steriods to keep my blood and energy levels normal but it seems like it's so much harder while on these steriods to lose any weight or maybe I'm just using that as an excuse I'm just not real sure, maybe it's just a combination of things. I do tend to use food as a crutch. How do I get over that and how do I get my but off the couch and do what I know I need to do. I'm 5'2" and 220 pounds I would say that is pretty bad. I do know that I have been under allot of stess lately so that don't help but I still want to find a way to get motivatied so if any one has some suggestions just fire away!

Hi Sally.

When I was on steroids for a while, I found it nearly impossible to keep weight off.

I would talk to your doctor, who may be able to come up with some suggestions.
