I've had a similar experience, including many complications (see warning to Todd Chapman). As long as I could take the prednisone for a 6-8 week cycle and get completely off for several months I was able to lose the weight. The problem came a few years ago when I was basically chronic and went from 175 lbs. to 210 lbs. in about a year. Although I was able to get down to 180 since, my stomach was stretched (even with doing 100 stomach crunches a day for the last year and a half). So it's not just the weight but where it is. Prednisone may be OK short term, just do your best not to use it long term.
