emoticon ! I'm glad you found the team. I know it's been a big help to me and my maintenance! It looks like you have learned to live with a slow metabolism. I know mine gets slower about every five years and then I have to adjust my nutrition and exercise.

I look forward to getting to know you better and emoticon again to the team!

Wow, I applaud you for doing all that. I think my metabolism is sluggish but my thyroid checked out fine. I read where some people burn over 400 calories whiile sleeping, I am luck to reach 280.

I love SparkPeople

Today is the first day of the rest of my life.

I am responsible for my own happiness.

My name is Bonnie

I lost 122 pounds and have maintained it since 12/28/12.

Too Blessed to be Stressed.

Welcome aboard!

You're definitely on the right track! I've been on a zero sugar / zero grain approach since Jan. 1st...39 pounds down for the year so far!

You can DO THIS! :-)

Welcome!

I have mild hypothyroidism so I can relate in a small way to your experience. I too avoid sugar, limit starches, and exercise almost daily.

I have an extremely slow metabolism. I have gone to a doctor who is an expert on thyroid problems and she agreed that my metabolism is extremely affected by hypothyroidism.

Due to my challenge, I need to do many interventions to succeed at the weight loss game.
Here are some of the things that I need to do:

No sugar
No starches
No processed foods
Eat mindfully and slowly without distractions,
Only eat when hungry and stop when full.
Exercise a lot. I love Pilates and do it at home.

Exercise plays a key role in my weight loss journey. I have been very strict with the diet for over 10 years but have had times when I was too busy for exercise and the pounds came back. Last year, I increased my workout time and the pounds disappeared.

This year I decided to go on maintenance when I reached size small.
I am so glad to have found this wonderful team! You are amazing!
My goal is to help this team highlight the importance of maintenance to other dieters.
