I am posting this because I feel like I have created a connection with some of your moms and it is news I really wanted to share. I went to the doctor yesterday(evening) and I have lost 10 pounds since January. I know to some people that may not sound like a lot but as some of you may be aware I have a thyroid problem that makes it difficult for me to lose weight. I have been trying to at least maintain my current weight as I did not want to gain but in my efforts I actually lost. The entire family went with me because we wanted to go out to dinner afterwards. I was so proud of myself that a actually ordered dessert, something I haven't had in months. I was good though because I ordered something that I knew hubby would eat so I took a few bites and gave it to him! I know most of you will be happy for me but for those that aren't I will say this. If you don't have anything nice to say don't say anything at all!

Positive motivation is the key..excited for you a great start is always great and keep moving foward to a healthier you as you are important and you are capable of reaching any goal you set your desire on! I lost 80lbs within a month and a half. 20 lbs automatically with adding a breafast shake as I have low sugar levels and the rest from eating more balanced.. the key was to not eat the same food group.. and with 1 hour of weight training and 1 hour of raquetball twice a week. My aunt has thyroid issues as well and it was a challenge to get on the right track for weight loss..with the help of a nutritionist she has been doing great she is down 30lbs. Things will get easier once you get used to healthier choices.

I am very happy for you! Especialy since i know how hard it is with the weight problems that come with thyroid problems! I had my entire thyroid removed last year after having problems for 6 years. I gained 50pounds in less then two years :( I am on Euthyrox now and my weight hasnt gone up..but it has not dropped either.
If you ever need someone to chat about the thyroid problems feel free to pm me!

Thanks! It's not easy because like most people I like food. I was actually expecting trash mouth to have something to say but I don't think she has been here yet today!
