After being on Prednisone for 71 days I am finally off of it. I took my last dose of it yesterday. Now I’m currently just on the budesonide. I’m hoping that now that I’m off the prednisone that I’ll start to lose all of that extra weight that it caused me to gain. It will help once I can start back up at the gym. I’ve been sick for almost a week now and I didn’t want to push myself too hard. I hope that I continue to do well on it. I really don’t want to have to go on immunosupressors anytime soon.
I did break down today and go buy another pair of dress pants a size or two bigger than what I normally wear. I put on a bit of weight with the prednisone and now a lot of my clothes aren’t fitting right unfortunately. I did luck out with the pants though because I bought them for $0.01! This is what the rang up as at Old Navy. I was super surprised but happy with the deal I got. I was a little frustrated with their size selection though. I’m a very short person(5’1″) so I need petite pants. Luckily I did mange to find one pair. When I mentioned it to the cashier she said that they don’t normally carry them in stores! Really now?! The only reason I found the pair I got was because it was an online return. I wish it wasn’t so hard to find pants as a short person!
