I'm only 20 and i have hashimotos thyroiditis, which is basically just a really low thyroid hormone level. I've had it ever since i was 13, and i started to pack on the pounds. I'm constantly tired, even on days when i feel most rested, I'm still physically and mentally exhausted. I take synthroid, and I try my best to take it every morning around the same time, but I do miss days on occasion.
Over the last 4 years, I've put on nearly 50 pounds, but apparently I hold my weight well, so it's not too unsightly. Nonetheless, I still feel like a whale!
We will ALL get down to our goal weights, thyroid disease or not!
good luck all, xo
