Hi I am also Hypo thyroid since a pregnancy in my late 30's. I am now in my mid 40's. My weight problem started at the same time as the thyroid issues and also right around the same time my sweet tooth and my appetite kicked in big time.
I am trying the Flat Belly Diet, seems to be going ok so far. Not really too hungry although I have a hankering for sweet stuff after meals. My husband is doing it with me which helps. The drawback is I am use to feeling a little fuller and to eating quite a bit more. The pounds are starting to come off!
