It's not from diet and exercise- it's my overactive thyroid.
I know this sounds terrible to be happy but at least something positive is from this stupid thing!
I started taking 10mg of Tapazole (generic kind) just a few days ago.
Which should slow things down a bit...
I must say for once it is nice to lose weight and not even try! Reminds me of when I was in high school!
I still have terrible negative symptoms- like TERRIBLE muscle weakness. It's hard to stand up sometimes. Insomnia, sweating, racing heart, etc. If I had to choose I would take the 8lbs over those other symptoms!
Of course I could probably gain 8lbs in a weekend! :-)
