That stinks. I was like that after prednisone. It took me forever to get rid of the prednisone weight. I was always so petite my whole life, and then after prednisone, i was like a sausage. I was at a loss. I did so much exercise, hiked daily, uphill, six or more miles, and I only toned, didn't get my old body back. I don't know why it was happening.
How long have you been off the prednisone? I would imagine being healthy might be the culprit, being able to eat what you want... perhaps the pred distributed the weight in a way that appears undesirable to you? I would imagine it's probably more noticeable to you than it is to others, but that's not helpful regardless. Have you tried avoiding salt intake? Maybe it's water retention.
Interestingly, I had surgery for my UC, and now I eat whatever I want and I am back to petite. Strange.
