I wish I could tell you I have the same thing...but I have the opposite problem. I joined weight watchers last week because my weight is just getting out of control. everytime I go on prednisone, I gain at least 5 lbs. However, I gained .2 lbs after my first week at weight watchers. I could feel the swelling in my face and hands. It was really discouraging because I thought I was following the plan...and then I gained. I have read that weight loss is a symptom of lupus...unfortunately it's not one of mine.
