Hi all! I'm just joining DietBet for the first time. Prednisone and other meds are kicking my butt and I desperately need to lose the weight I've put on since starting treatment.

Hi gals. I'm doing a few dietbets too, one with Sandra. I turned 50 this year and was diagnosed when my second child was one so I've had RA for about 12 years now. On max dose of methotrexate, and Humira every other week. Way too many rounds of steroids but mostly for my back/neck issues (herniated disks, ect). Even had 8 nerves burned off in my lower back last year. I'd love to lose 50 lbs this year but optimal would be a total loss of about 60-70. Any weight loss will help with this relentless pain and fatigue.

I was diagnosed with RA in 2005. Since that time I have put on 75lbs. Steroids, depression and general pain have been the main contributors.
I'm now 46, 47 in a few weeks and I've had enough of being unfit, being breathless when I climb a flight of stairs and not able to get on the floor to do floor exercises.
So I've joined a few Dietbet games to make myself accountable to myself.

hey there. I was diagnosed w RA about 1 year ago. I have always worked out and still do but find things arent as easy. I am 46 and always looking for new motivation. my goal weight is about 25 pounds from where I am however I didnt know that until I finally got on a scale yesterday to join DietBet.. ;)
I take plaqunil and Humira injections and the occasional NSAID. I have sensitive skin since I started the Humira but as of now the positive outweighs the negative. how do you get along?
