It can take up to 6 weeks before the meds fully kick in. Losing weight may still be harder, but not impossible. Just keep working at it. Don't be too hard on yourself, eventually You'll get there. Much SUCCESS!
Hello. My name is Gina and I am new to the team. I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism 3 weeks ago and have been on my meds for 2 weeks. I am wondering how long it will take for it to start working. I also have been struggling to lose weight for months now and have lost nothing. It's extremely frustrating to eat like a bird, exercise like crazy and not lose any weight. So I am happy for any advice that you have. I am 38 years old, 5ft tall and weigh 160lbs right now. I would like to lose 40 lbs, maybe more.
