View Full Version : My WL challenge w/hypothyroidism

07-10-2008, 08:02:38 AM

I am Lori and I am addicted to carbohydrates. My ideal last meal would be garlic bread with mashed potatoes washed down with Margaritas.

I have hypothyroidism and have blown up to 188. I have recently started to work out at Curves again and follow Weight Watchers after taking a 6 month break.

Anyone else with a wacky thyroid had success at losing weight?

I am going to have to have surgery to have a huge nodule removed, but that's another thread all together.

OK, come on, tell me I can do it!!

Thanks MV! Our Curves is having a 'Biggest Loser' type contest. 20 people have signed up, paid $5, and the person who loses the biggest % wins the $100. I'm hoping that helps to keep me motivated.

I'm hypo and have gained a bunch too. Been dealing with it for about a year and half -- started before that, took me a while to catch on!

I've made a few attempts and finally decided I am knuckling down and losing it. I'm doing Atkins. It works, its not too terribly difficult to stick to, and its fairly easy to follow.

I want to lose 45ish. I went from a size 8 - 10 up to a 16.
