Well, I didn't make any new year's resolutions. However, after seeing myself in the full-sized mirror at JCPenney's while my "thin" daughters tried on summer clothes, I decided to lose my "prednisone" weight. Long story, short: I joined Weight Watchers in April and I am down 30.2 lbs so far, with 1.8 lbs left to go! Not bad, considering it took 2 years and 3 rounds of prednisone to pack that extra weight on. My birthday was November 8 and I was thrilled to be able to use my gift card to buy a skirt in the single digit size! Now to keep it off while I start a brand new (to me) drug: Entocort. Wish me luck.

Meds: Imuran (100 mg) Entocort EC (9 mg) Synthroid (75 mg) Multivitamin, Biotin, B12, Pepcid AC
Successes: No KidneyStones in over a year & a half! OK, not a resolution but something to celebrate!
Eating better. well moderate success.
Failures: Nothing major! Did fall of the excercise wagon a bit because of a pair of viruses in October. Legs seem worse now because my Arthritis took advantage. back on course now.
Oh, and still looking for a love interest. <sigh> The neverending quest..
Next year: I resolve to forget resolutions & just live life!
Thanks for the positive words Ivy.
I wasn't able to exercise a whole lot this summer because I had a perianal abscess drained in May, and then had some tendon scares with Cipro in Aug/Sept., but I have gotten back on the exercise bandwagon in hopes of losing some of this pred weight!
