I'm a 47 year old ESRD patient with a new kidney (received 1/11/2018). As part of the rejection meds I'm on, the docs put me on a low dose of a steroid, Prednisone, which makes me very very hungry all the time. In the first 6 months after the transplant, I gained 65 pounds. I wasn't able to walk hardly and said, "Well... that's enough of that shit," and went on a diet. As far as my health goes, I'm doing really well.

I live in the middle of nowhere in flyover country. There's no restaurant near me, so I'm not tempted to go out very often, which is probably a good thing. I like spicy foods and right now I'm obsessed with Korean spicy as gochujang is crazy good. When I go to the city for doctor's appointments, I always stop by the local Asian grocery store and pick a few things up to cook with and then experiment.

I'd like to get down to 130 pounds, which I haven't seen since I was in 7th grade. I'm just calorie counting, and looking to lose 2 or so pounds a week, which is working for me so far. Wish me luck! And good luck to everyone else on their goals!

I ran 13 miles yesterday and ate 1500 calories. This morning i gained 2lbs. Help! So upset!
As someone who has kidney problems and is on dialysis, I can say, this "weight gain" is most likely water. You would be absolutely amazed how much water weighs. If you had a little extra sodium in your diet that day and drank a glass or two extra of water,(which I assume you did if you ran 13 miles) 2 pounds is nothing. Don't sweat it.
