In April I found a Dr. who put me on Metformin and Armour thyroid and I've gone from 183 to 147# and plan to release another 20#. He told me I have Insulin Resistance. I feel good as I have had NO hunger since I started the Metformin.

Was actually looking forward to going for my physical last week. My Doc wanted me down 20 & I knew I had beaten that. According to his scale I was down 27.5. According to mine 30.5
All the corresponding numbers were down also - cholesteral, BP etc.

And than we get to the listening part with the stethescope & he tells me something doesn't sound right & an EKG shows afib.

So with losing weight & hitting the Y really well, I feel betrayed by my own body.

I haven't lost my resolve for a permanent change in diet & workouts though. Would like to be closer to my goal of another 24lbs by the end of the year to put me at an even 200. It's taken me 4 months to lose the first 30.
