Hi, I am new to this site and this team. I am sorry and I can totally relate with you on how you are feeling. Like a previous poster stated, I weigh myself and take my measurements. Sometimes I lose inches and the scale stays the same. Have you tried mixing cardio with a weight routine? I am always looking for ways to increase my metabolism and I started a small weight lifting routine (three times a week) and it has been really working! My arms are starting to show definition and I went down a size, but the scale stayed the same. Mondays I do arms, Wednesdays legs, and Fridays abs. All are with free weights and only for 30 minutes. It really helps bring up my energy levels.

About a year ago, I started feeling really tired. I found out my iron levels were really low. If you are feeling really tired, you should talk to your doctor. Maybe your medication is not the right strength or your iron is low?

I relate to your frustration too because I am killing myself with exercise, eating right, and I still get comments from my family that I am "fat" and why don't I do something about it? I am trying!!! I guess we just have to figure out how to manage this and live life to the fullest. You are not alone.

Hang in there!! I have Hashimotos disease and its not easy to deal with. All I can say is never stop trying!! The health issues and problems could be a lot worse if we gain weight and give up on our health. I'm a nurse and have done some research on thyroid disorders. I am on Armour Thyroid and it works much better for me. Hope you feel better!! emoticon

Please don't use just the scale to measure your progress. Have you taken your measurements and how do your clothes fit now? And how do you feel physically?

We just have to accept the fact that we are Hypothyroid -- we're not going back to being 'normal' again. Make sure that you do take your medication and that you get tested on a regular basis. Exercising for at least 30 mins a day is basically a must with us and of course writing down all that we eat.

I wish you well on this journey and please, do not get discouraged. emoticon

I am so frustrated with the fact that I have been trying so hard to lose weight and yet the scale never budges. I watch what I eat, drink a lot of water, and try to walk as much as I can (with the fatigue of course) yet I don't see any results. I hate the fact that I have to work twice as hard as non thyroid issue people and yet I get the looks and comments about being lazy and just exercising more. Hello! I have done that and my weight never went down. The scale has stayed at the same place for years.

I know I know, don't give up, but you know what there are days when I'm like....if I have to work this hard and still not seeing any results, what is the point.

Sorry just needing to vent to like minded people.
