I found I had a massive appetite on steroids. I was constantly hungry and ate and ate. I put on a lot of weight very quickly as it was coupled with not doing any exercise.

If she needs to lose weight she's probably going to have to get help from her GP. Maybe they can send her in the direction of some suitable exercise classes for someone with arthritis and pain?

And then maybe help with finding less fattening things to chomp on when she's hungry?
