    Well as some of you know, I got sick this summer (flare-up of ulcerative colitis) and went from ~230 to ~190lbs in two weeks. Shortly after getting out of the hospital, I got blood clots in both legs and was on blood thinners for a long time.

    Throughout this, I had been on high doses of the catabolic steroid, Prednisone. This was a very shitty time in my life and I didn't lift consistently again til about 5 weeks or so (tried to start up but would feel like complete ass after a couple of days so I would stop).

    Well I'm pretty much in complete remission for my colitis (but a flare-up could happen at any time :greddy: ) , and have been off my steroids for about 8 weeks. As you can imagine though, my body composition went to complete shit after taking so long off and being on prednisone for such a long time. I was skinny-fat. I was going to bulk but decided to shed my unwanted bodyfat first so that I didn't look like a slob anymore.


    In 5 weeks , I've went from like 215 of skinny-fat to 200 of just skinny :o

    In any case, I think I look much better and hope to drop some more bodyfat before full out bulking again.

    It's actually really hard to eat a lot anymore, I'm on a ton of prescription medication that nauseates the hell out of me. And it's quite hard to eat while nauseated.

    All your muscles are gone :(

    You looked horrible at 215, but at least there was sex muscles lurking underneath the surface!

    Prednisone is some nasty shit. Be thankful you don't have to take it in liquid form.

    Did you shave, or did you use some other form of hair removal? Did you get your whole arms? You look so much better without body hair :hs:. I mean that in a non-gay way.

    Could you taste it in your mouth when they gave it to you IV? I always could, and it stayed there for a while too.
