Hi there !
I have been a member of spark for a few years, however recently I was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism. Its strange, it seems most of my life i was curvy happily over weight by 10, 20 pounds, then marriage , kids, neglect, over worked and then unemployed i seemed to wake up, and realize i was over weight, way over weight. I had gained 100 pounds from the time i was 20s to my 50s and never really noticed. so I've been on a quest to get healthier ever since.
When I started spark, my weight loss was so slow, losing a half a pound at a time, but I thought, I am pretty patient, i can wait. Last summer I Started having hot flashes again, and I started losing so much faster, 2- 3 pounds a week. I thought wheww its finally working. but why am I having hot flashes? I had already gone through menopause. ( in fact a couple years before I steadily put on 1 pound a week, and stopped my period and rejoiced it was over! - I figured I could lose the weight when it stopped- 50 pounds later)
As I said earlier I was recently diagnosed with hyperthyroidism. and now am in the process of finding out why. I am scheduled for my first uptake scan next week. I figured i could learn a lot from all of you that have already gone through this.
