Exclamation Cant seem to lose weight...

Hi. Im 19 had papillary cancer and had my entire thyroid removed. Ive been on 300 mg of syntheroid for awhile now and my levels have been great! But ive yet to lose weight. I work out on almost a daily basis. I find it very hard to lose weight even with the amount of weight training and cardio i do. Does any body know what i can do to add on to my exercise? Any supplements that are safe for me to take that work very well? Please help!

Thats a super high dose---did you test your free t3 and free t4 levels? Some people gain weight when hyperthyroid.

Re: Cant seem to lose weight...

are you on 300 mg or 300 mcg? (the measure is a big difference).

what is your starting weight? and what is your goal weight?

how many weeks have you been dedicated to exercise? how many days per week?

I truly believe exercise is over rated for weight loss. Write down everything you eat, and add up the calories daily. I've been trying green coffee bean supplements that possibly helped me not to gain weight while on a cruise.

I know you think are working out hard, but it doesn't sound like enough to cause weight loss--- at least to me!

Re: Cant seem to lose weight...

Unfortunately, there is not a 'magic bullet' for weight loss, not even for those without thyroid.

The only thing you can do is look at your calories in vs. calories out, make sure you are consuming the right amount of calories (not too much, not too little) and enjoy your exercise.

Maybe measures other than the number on the scale will help keep you motivated, like working towards running an xx minute mile, measuring body inches instead of pounds, or learning a new sport/exercise.
