Although I must sound like a broken record, I gained significant weight before my thyroid condition was discovered, then was not able to lose it after I started thyroid medication. A kind SparkPeople coach let me know that often people with hypothyroid DO have a very difficult time losing weight even though they are on thyroid medication. And, it is not as simple as just cutting calories and exercising more...but it was possible to find a food program that would work for me. That was the first "spark" of light for me...where I had some information that gave me hope.
I am on day 14 - two weeks - of the "Thyroid Diet Revolution" diet, and have lost 5 pounds (4.8 pounds to be exact) in these 14 days! This is after 3 years of struggling and trying and not losing an ounce. I am so thankful to have found a program that works for me. I was so desperate. Thank God!!!
