i also have underactive thyroid, and was trying all to get rid of the extra, extra weight and was not succesful for the longest time! but, i hated being big and wanted so much to lose the weight and luckily i came across fitday. fitday and the amazing support groups have been a blessing in my life! i'm on my 7 weeks on fitday, the last i weigh myself last friday, i had lost 10 lbs so far, i'm sure i have lost more this week, i'll know by tomorrow how much more. what i mean by all this, weight loss is possible! if i could do it, so could you! eat well, log your food, exercise and you'll see the pounds dropping!
Never give up on a dream just because of the length of time it will take to achieve it. The time will pass anyway.
