Losing the Decadron Weight Gain

mudrundogtagAfter 8 weeks of weekly treatments and Decadron boosts, the pounds have started to add up.  I’m not sure the amount exactly but my clothes are a little tighter and my esteem is a little lower.  I know that I although my appetite was healthy, the foods that I have eaten were not.  Having a steroided appetite is much like having a hangover appetite.  All one wants to eat are carbs, sugar, salt and fat.

What makes this difficult for me is that I’ve always been relatively fit.  Since a child I’ve been involved in some sort of sport or activity.  I even ran a mud run last year with my best friend, Shara a few months after completing my 2nd go at chemotherapy. So gaining a few pounds every round of treatment has really started to add up.

So now that my treatments have been pushed to monthly and the season has shifted from Winter to Spring, it is time to move more and eat less.  I don’t plan on dieting, I plan on working.  The calories in must be less than the calories out.  It’s simple math.

Here we go – the next step of this unending journey. Wish me luck.
