Hi all... i started taking steroids 7 years ago as i have addisons disease and since then i have gained between 3 and 4 stone. last year i tried to do slimming world to lose weight but the most i ever lost was 5lb and it was such a struggle to even lose that.
But i am desperate to lose some of the weight i have gained even if it is just a stone although preferably i would prefer to lose around 2-2 1/2 stone as i have gone from a size 6-8 to a 16 and would preferably like to get down to a 12 again at least!
I also have coeliac disease and as i take steroids am hungry ALOT!!!!
Much sympathy, I am on steriods fir the first time at the moment - fortunately a short course but omg the hunger is mind blowing, I'm not surprised you have gained. I am trying to keep my carbs low to stave off the blood sugar highs and lows and put the brakes on the hunger. I think that's your best bet, have a Google, it's often recommended. The website 3fatchicks has a massive post on this topic. Good luck, it really is hard but people have done it.
