    Don't worry about it soror. Things will work out. Follow the doctor's orders and see what happens. emoticon

    Have you talked to your Dr about it. I'm sure he/she might have some suggestions for you. Swimming might be good for your weight and your knee.

    You have done a magnificent job and I really don't want you to regain either. Can you talk with your doctor about exercise in water which would take the pressure off your joints, but allow you to burn calories? Or what about weights (upper body and core) for now? I think if you work with a trainer or someone experienced, they can develop a workout that takes into consideration your limitations. Good luck, remember, you are an overcomer! emoticon

    Well if you probably watch what you are eating, you could actually maintain your weight. A friend at work is actually eating cleaner with fresh fruits & veggies and in 2 weeks he lost 10lbs! So that tells me that diet & exercise play a key role in a healthier lifestyle. So if you can't work out as hard as you were then you need to get a diet friendly book or use spark nutrition & use their meal planners & don't forget to go to fitness & enter you will be burning less calories. It will tabulate exactly how much food you will need to eat to lose or maintain.

    God bless & enjoy everyday!

    I am pretty sure it is temporary gain for as long as you are taking the medication.
    Why don't you call your doctor and set your mind at ease.

    I don't know what your knee problem is since you didn't mention it. Is it arthritis?

    I have severe arthritis in my left knee as well as neuropathy. I am taking generic Tylenol arthritis pills for it rather than the harsh drugs that put on weight.

    I hope this helps but talk to your doctor first.
