I joined a new team the other day and I should had found them right from the start. I am just now starting to see how shameful I am to tell people that I have this disorder. All through my life, I have heard people use the excuse of their thyroid as being the reason that they are over weight. Most people just look at them and say something mean back, like I wish I could use that as an excuse. So when I have told a few people about my hypothyroid, they roll their eyes and sometimes say something. I think I have not wanted to except that this disorder is my reason also. By not excepting that for over 18 yrs, I gain and lose weight differently than others, has kept me frustrated and depressed. I will get on the roller coaster for long periods at a time. By joining my Thyroid group, I am finding that I am not alone!! I realize that I have been very isolated with this disorder and not wanting to talk about it to anyone. So having them in my life now, is a God send. There is much for me to learn about all of this and they are the ones to teach me!!

    I missed you yesterday! Was hoping for a familiar face to chat SP with and motivate others at Curves. LOL

    I had a girlfriend with a thyroid prob before being medicated. I seen how it messed with her emotions and weight. There is no shame in a medical disorder, we have all have our crosses to bear and to better.

    BLSDMIMI, I completely understand what you are saying. I'm just thankful that I know why the weight has become a roller coaster to me in the last year. It's not an excuse it's a reason. Now that you know what the problem is you can begin to repair it. I to had no knowledge of thyroid disorders until it happened to me. I am also learning from the very educated thyroid disorder family here on sparkpeople. It does get better you will have good days and bad. Here's to many good days. Jo emoticon
