I visited your page and see our weight at the present and our goal weight is the same. I have been struggling for over a year to try and lose more weight. I met regularly with my dietitian for almost three years (until she had a baby last October and has not contacted me back since). I eat right, I exercise - no results on the scale. In fact over the last three months aI have gained. I have been very frustrated and discouraged. At this point I have said to my husband - maybe this is i. Maybe I just cannot lose any more and this is the weight I have to be satisfied with. Nothing I have done has resulted in losing again. Maybe it is time for me to put the scale away too. (I do not have thyroid issues like you either)

Blessings,
Ruthie

Hi;
I went to the Dietician, and basically she told me I'm doing everything right.
She said I should watch my sugars more closely and not eat as much fruit as I have been. Also to stick to good oils and not use any butter, except occasionally.
According to her the med's I take hamper my success with losing weight, and since my thyroid is bad, the med's I take for it keep me from losing weight.
So from now on I am going to stop sweeting the small stuff, and just keep eating healthy. I am done beating myself up because I can't reach a certain weight.
I have put my scale away, emoticon and am only going to weigh myself once a month. Today- tomorrow and the rest of the life God gives me, is going to be spent with things that make me happy, and I am going to emoticon
