emoticon Hello there and welcome to our team.

Being Hypothyroid can be kind of discouraging at times when we want to lose weight but it's NOT an impossibility. Rev up your exercise level and watch your food intake, and you should be on your way.

I recommend that you do inform yourself thoroughly about our condition by reading. The Mary Shomon site is very good for that. In that site, that is where I found that T3 may be good for me. When I was only taking T4 (Levothyroxine), my levels were not stable at all. Once I was able to stabilize my levels, that is when I was able to do something about my weight.

Keep active on this team as well as on the site. It is highly recommended because those that do remain active, have a better chance at reaching their ultimate goals.

I wish you well on this journey. Many emoticon

Mary Shomon has books about being hypothyroid and theres an article about eating with hypothyroidism here on Sparks. It is a great article and make sure to limit your consumption of goitronic foods. Exercise is the key (as we all know) but it is more difficult with a sluggish thyroid. I hope you are being treated by a reputable doctor. I take Armour thyroid and it has T1 through T4 in it. It is a natural thyroid medication. Good luck with your journey.

Junk food you have been craving for an hour or the body you have wanted for years? It's your choice

Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels.
