first time posting here, need some help!!!

I really need to lose weight, I don't want to be "skinny" (that would be nice)  I just want to feel comforable in my own skin. 

I have MS, I end up on IV steroids about every 6 months.  This makes me balloon.  I got the highest and longest dose back in July, I gained weight.  I am now on steroids again.

 I need to eat healthier, I need to exercise.  I don't know where to begin, any suggestions?

  • Good for you! Congrats on getting healthier. everyone is different so experiment with lots of new things. try recipes, or a specific program of foods. there really isnt one way to get fit. The best one for you is the one you can stick with.

    Exercise in a group works best for me, but you might be more consistent with solo runs or at home DVDs, just do something active. i also recommend controlling portions and getting an idea of how many calories you eat daily. add veggies, fruit, healthy stuff.

    AND, have fun! its a lifestyle.

    2 Corinthians 12:9 But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me.

  • Hi!  I am new to the board and am in a similar situation.  I have RA and am on steriods as well!  I recently purchased an elliptical for the house and also sometimes do pilates DVD's depending on my pain/range of motion.  We also like doing protein shakes for breakfast - easy and good for you. Best of luck!
