I am just out of hospital and got the post hospital blues, on lots of prednisolone, feeling fat and fed up as, yet again, my weight has gone up(lots of prednisolone, lots of easter eggs and general rubbish eating!) and I havent been able to do any exercise for ages.
Anyway, I just found this fabby website called FitBug. You pay a monthly amount (Â£9) and they send you a little ""bug"" which you attach to yourself and it counts your steps all day. You then plug the bug into your computer every week and it uploads the information and gives you targets. you also enter your weight and nutrition each day and it tells you how many more steps you need to do to lose or maintain weight, whichever you are looking to achieve. I received mine yesterday and it is so good. I feel much more motivated to do something about my weight.
Come to the conclusion that walking is the only exercise that I can consistently achieve, I have given up with everything else. Just thought I would let people know about this as I know many of you are in the same boat, battling with weight and prednisolone and exercise restrictions.
Hope it helps someone else out there.
