I was already overweight and the prednisone packed on another 30 pounds.
I am trying to lose and have lost just a few pounds so far. I work in a public library and patrons think nothing on commenting on my size or anything else they want.
Just today, I had a lady I've known for years, say well what do you eat? You've got to find something healthy, surely they've given you a diet. I said well, I am so restricted I have to set my own diet. She kept pushing, I was not going to tell her my meals and finally I said just don't worry about it and walked away.
Then, I must look really fat today because another long time patron wanted to know if I was losing any weight. I said yeah a few and she said well, you need to lose more! Then, she said I'm sure you're doctor has told you to lose more!
SO SO rude, I just walked away.
It's hard enough without the peanut gallery chiming in every day. I didn't get this size overnight and it's not going to go away overnight either.
Also, I had to wear my protective diaper today, so maybe my rear end seems larger.
