Three weeks ago during a relatively good patch I decided that enough was enough, despite my rheumatologist repeatedly saying that I would only need both oral and intramuscular steroids until I was established on the right combination of disease modifying drugs, I decided that if I didn't act now, I would be seriously overweight for the rest of my days.
Last year's disastrous experiment with coming off the steroids didn't help so I I took to great momentous step of joining slimming world online.
I am pleased to say that despite long term steroids after three weeks I am 10.4lbs lighter, not bad really and husband has lost 7 lb as well.
I'm now thinking that although my lupus is out of my control, at least I can do this and who know, it might just help, so I'm feeling positive today even though I've had a migraine all weekend. (it's better now)
Hope that you are all having a good day too 😀
