i have had thyroid problems(no thyroid production) and have been on thyrexin since the birth of my second child, 12 years ago. i also had problem losing weight, but 5 months ago i discovered fitday and things changed for me. i registered my food intake and found out:
1 i was not having enough calories a day ( was keeping it at 800-900 in my effort to lose weight)
2 almost all my calories were from simple carbs
3 was not drinking enough water
i changed all this, i have about 1100-1200 calories/day, have been trying to keep my carb/protein/fat ratio at or close to 40/40/20 and drink more water, about 64 ounces/day. I also have tried to exercise on a regular basis. to be honest, i didn't know any of these components of the weight loss on my own, but thanks to the wonderfull, knowledgable people and their support on this fourms i have lost 30 lbs and reached my goal in 5 months. good luck!
Never give up on a dream just because of the length of time it will take to achieve it. The time will pass anyway.
