Default thyroid?

Hey - I was just diagnosed with hypothyroidism. Do you have hypo or hyperthyroidism? Either can be treated with medications by a doctor and both, if left untreated can cause other health problems.
With hypothyroidism I felt tired constantly, which definitely made it difficult to lose. I worked out nearly 3 hours a day and could not lose a pound and so going to a metabolic specialist was so encouraging because it was nice to know that my weight wasn't all my fault and that I with a little help I can take control of my weight loss journey and be triumphant.
The doctor put me on levothyroxine 3 days ago and already I'm feeling better emotionally and have more energy.
So - you just need to know what your thyroid condition is and seek treatment - it's a bother to have to depend on a pill to make you "right" but it's empowering to be able to fix your body when you actually know what is wrong with it.
Good luck!!!
