What I have noticed a problem with is the amount of injuries I get from working out. The torn ligiments from the swelling of the joints.

Okay, My two cents for what it is worth.
At one point in my life I was thin.. (Oh the memories)...then in my twenties I plumped up...my doc at the time ask me "what happened" to which I replied, "you are the doc you tell me"...well it was my thyroid. Then the battle of the bulge was on. I gained more, lost, gained, lost, gained, lost...you get the pic.
Well I was diagnosed later on with the chrohn's and Hashimotto's thyroid, then like you the Predisone and other meds piled more weight on me.
As for diet pills, the saying "if it sounds to good to be true, it usually is" is the case.
I have tried about every diet out there I have done the pills to. All meds have side effects and many are not desirable. I did the pill for "belly fat" Cortisol. (prior to chron's diagnosis) It gave me terrible abdominal pain, so I thru a ton of money out the window and made myself sick.
I have done Weight Watchers for some time now and lost 73 pounds, I have more to lose and I have my set backs as I recently had to have more Predisone and put 10 pounds back on. But I can't give up now.
Thru my years of professional dieting I have learned the ONLY way to lose weight is to do a lifestyle change. I do not call it dieting anymore, it is my new lifestyle. You need a proper diet and the incorporation of exercise that you are able to do, and patience and the pounds will come off. Remember slow and steady, any loss is a loss...Good luck in your journey.
Okay, my two cents worth...
