I have let things slide lately. I am not binging but I am not eating as healthily. I have not exercised like I should. My Zumba teacher emigrated and I do not have another class. I do not feel well at all. My symptoms are not good. I am having a lot of hypos my skin is so itchy and my hair is falling out a lot. I need to increase my fruit and decrease my carbs, I will start this weekend, Plus more yoghurt and see how it goes.

I have not left my flat for 2 weeks since I got ill. I am better now but have not gone out. Fighting depression. Worried about my weight. I am not overeating but I can see the old Thyroid weight gain problem is rearing its ugly head. gaining in ounces. So scared, I will go back into housebound depression if I cant find a way to stop this. I tried increasing my Eltroxin but that did not work. I am now going to try decreasing my carbs to see of that helps. being veggie makes it so much more difficult.

I am worried about keeping my weight down. I am not over eating but I am eating a bit more than before. My symptoms are not good. My hair is falling out a lot. My skin is really bad and I am so tired. I am fighting depression again. I know I need more nutrients so I have added more which in turn must have added more calories. I have not weighed myself since I noticed the first pound go on. Too scared in case I start to binge. My eating disorders would kick in. The Hypo makes weight gain inevitable, which makes me terrified, so I must work as hard as I can to stay calm and reduce the chances of that gain. Continue to exercise and be sensible. But I know i cant weigh myself or I will lose control in my panic. As long as I am in control and careful what I eat that will be ok. if I binge then that is another story. However I will not binge, because I have made a lifetime commitment for my health and weight never to get fat again.

men always seem to lose the weight while we stay stuck. It is so not fare. It is a constant struggle to lose weight with Thyroid. Even staying the same weight is a battle. If I manage to lose the weight this time I will never allow myself to put it on again. I cant go through this battle again. It is soul destroying. Before I had the Eltroxin whatever I ate turned into fat. I lived on nothing and still piled on the pounds. I still eat very little but as long as I do that I do not gain. If I eat extra I gain again. This illness is such a curse. hair loss, itchy, bladder problems, sight problems, depression, you name it, Thyroid causes it.

My husband and I are both doing herbalife. We have two shakes in place of two meals, then one regular meal - usually supper. His schedule is sometimes different as he is working nights. He is dropping the weight like crazy. I am staying the same. I am out in the yard every day and did a lot of walking this last week. Not much seems to help since thyroid cancer.

Thank you. I was drinking shakes for a long time a few years back, but I overdid it and I became ill. I am not using them any more. Since my Thyroid stopped working I have a lot of intolerance to foods. I cant eat wheat, and some foods are blacklisted for Thyroid disease. I am a vegetarian so that also leaves out all meat and fish. I do eat a few free range eggs and a little cheese. I have soya once a week in burgers or sausages. I used to eat loads of those. I love them. I drink plant milks and a little skimmed milk. I would like to be vegan but my diet is so limited I am worried I would get really sick if I cut back any more drastically.
What do you eat and how is your diet progressing?

Congratulations on the weight loss. I have been able to get outside some everyday recently. I am also drinking herbalife shakes. Decided to give it a try.

I am still nine and a half stone but due to a lot of exercise and walking my shape is much better. I am doing well and feeling much more positive about my shape. I still want to lose another 14 pounds.

My Thyroxin has been increased to 75mcr. My weight is down 42 pounds now. very slow weight loss. maybe 1lb a month. But that is nearly a stone in a year so I am not complaining. Much better than the nothing I was losing before I went on the meds.

I have lost 33lbs since I started to try and get off the weight I put on since my Thyroid stopped working completely. The weight loss almost came to a complete standstill two months ago. Then last week I lost another 2 pounds. I am eating very little now. Since May I have made a very big effort. My BMI is 26 which is still overweight. I have a long way to go. It is snail pace. I want to lose another 20lb. Hopefully I can do it in another year, Thyroid permitting.

I have lost 2lbs since last week. This is am amazing result considering my thyroid had stopped working and I had gained so much. I am hoping this means that my metabolism is starting to rev up again. Also eating mostly mush has probably helped as well. I have been very careful to have only healthy foods. The good nutrition will hopefully speed up my recovery.

My liquidizer has a broken part and it cant be replaced. had a terrible time on the phone this morning trying to make myself understood. So I ordered a new one from lakeland. more expense!
Now that I have to eat all or most of my food as mush I cannot manage without it. it should come tomorrow. Hope it does not arrive while I am at the Dr. leaving a note outside so hopefully the driver will leave it.

Still on liquid food, no change there. Very boring way to eat.

I was already struggling with my weight before I got the hypothyroid. Then in the space of about 2 weeks I put on about 16 pounds. I could not believe it. Then all the other illnesses kicked in. In the space of a month I have completely broken down. Because of the palsy I am back to liquidized food, and drinking through a straw. I am a vegetarian and now do not know if I should just soft peddle till I feel better or start some sort of an eating plan according to the illnesses I now have.
