Sexiii52, are you on dexamethasone? I can't lose weight on that. But not eating carbohydrates, especially in the evening might help. Of course drinking lots of water and walking might help. It's a life long battle for me as well. Love Donna 💜

Dexamethasone will increase your appetite ten fold plus cause insomnia and it’s hard too get filled up and I was never one for sweets but after my first SCT I crave sweets all the time and a bowl of ice cream at night fills me up fairly good and helps with the nausea.
