Welcome to Sparks.

clik on the link below and it'll take you to a list of different Sparks teams dealing with Thyroid conditions. Maybe there is a team there that you could get some help with losing weight.

Now for the tasting, geeez, I'd like to think that your workouts help offset this but guess not.

i've just joined on the recommendation of a woman iat my gym, who lost 100 pounds thanks to sparkpeople. i'm finding it all very confusing at first glance. here's my situation: i have been exercising hard and dieting haphazardly since september of 2007. since then, i have lost just 15 pounds. i now work out three times a week (cardio and weights for about 1-1/2 hours each time). i have a thyroid deficiency and am talking a pill for this every morning. it is supposed to boost my metabolism, but doesn't seem to do much. the kicker: i am a food writer for a major newspaper and a cookbook author. when i am not cooking, i am writing about food or reading about food. i do have to taste, and it all adds up. i was not always overweight, though i had never been thin. i am a mesomorph gone wrong. i like to exercise and move my body. the weight kept accumulating each time i quit smoking (i finally succeeded 10 years ago) and after each of my pregnancies. i think i have an emotional issue that is hurting my attempts to control my eating, but i don't know what it is. i am not a social person or a joiner, but i do need help.
