Hello all, i am curious if anyone has had mysterious weight changes unrelated to taking steroids. When i had the worst flare ever last summer, i started losing weight without trying. I lost about 10 lbs and also changed my diet to a healthier one. Now, in the last month ive gained 7 lbs! I havent changed my diet and im exercising more. Im not taking meds. Im wearing my spf 50-100 and my hat religiously. I still have joint pain but the fatigue and neuropathy is almost gone.
I am wondering if perhaps its a sign of health, having gained the weight OR a sign that something else is going on. Not happy with my clothes being tight!

If you are exercising more, you may be building muscle weight, which is different than fat weight.

I've done both. First loosing 90 pds but I needed too and was just happy it was coming off. But I remember the last 20 came off like nothing. Didn't even really try at it. Hey I was happy so I didn't question it. Stayed that way for a few years but then wondered if my thyroid was off again because it was extreme hard to stay there after awhile. Like a few yrs. then last ur all of a sudden the weight just started piling on. I'm sooo frustrated and upset because I did feel I worked hard for that and now I feel like my weight gaining is now out of my control. I just want to cry about it sometimes. My metabolism is awful. I'm gaining weight even just sticking to 1000 to 1200 a day and I'm not on any meds yet. God, what's gonna happen to me when I do???
