  19. Thank you..I want to firm up the flab...so i will continue to do them everyother day..I do cardio every day for 30-60 min.
  20. LT I am so sorry you had a bad week/weigh in. Do you think your Dr. can give you a mild diuretic to off set the water weight the steroid is giving you? I do know for a fact they cause water weight.My father took them while he was on chemo to help him keep weight on...after 3 weeks he ended up in the hospital with congestive heart failure..they took 15 pounds of water off him in there! He was not allowed those anymore and ended up losing 60 pounds from the chemo..weight he needed to stay on... Talk with your Dr.It sure can`t hurt anything...hang in there..Don`t give up!
