Has anyone been successful with weight watchers and using prednisone??? I need to lose about 80 pds and remembered weight watchers has worked for me before my prednisone days and I am a little hesitant to do it because I would be having to eat so much food to meet my total points for the day. I had a hard time meeting my food requirement pts before (which was 24) and now I am up to 30 pts a day and I am just scared that if I force myself to eat that many pts a day, the prednisone will cause me to gain more weight!!!

I lost my first 55 pounds on WW and prednisone. You can do it it's just difficult. Limit your carbohydrates to maybe 100 grams a day and eat more lean protien. I have RA so couldn't exersize when I started because I was too sick but if you can exersize-even just a daily walk or some gentle stretching will help.
Are you on the WW message boards? There is a lot of chatter over there and some helpful advise.
