Same here. just dx with an enlarged thyroid and i suspicious nodule. follow a strict diabetic diet since i have it diet controlled. no matter what i do i can't lose and everytime i cheat i can expect 3 more pounds on the next day. don't see the endo until late august so i don't know how this will end. Good luck.
yeah my thyroid swells up, and i had to shout to the top yo even get a secound appointment i will be going mad for a scan dunno if i get one or not, we shall see, yeah but anyway somebody said they had a cold nodule and it was respsible for there weight gain please tell me why nodules can make your weight worse i thought if the old tsh was back in wack everthing was hunky dory god only knows!!!! all i know is i get a swollen throat from time to time and yes its my thyroid and i think its not normal for most thyroid sufferers to have and also ive told the endo and the doc and they sent me away, anybody who has this should be scanned, and all thyroid people should get a scan as standard ans so says me!!!!! love from kat i . s. h. t.. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
I did have some success with weight watchers. The first week I lost 5 pounds (which I'm sure was a lot of water weight). After that sometimes 2 pounds one week, 1 pound the next. Sometimes I would lose nothing, but at least I never gained. I've stopped losing now, but its my fault for not sticking to it. I also started taking Congugated Lineolic Acid which someone recommended to help with fat. I will let everyone know how it works or if it helps at all. I am 5 foot 4 inches and weighed 178. I am down to 161 but still have 30 pounds to lose. Its so extremely hard to lose especially when I was always one to be able to eat everything and never gain a pound. Good luck!!!!!!!!!!!!
I recently started going to a place called Metabolic Research Center, AKA Metaslim. Their website is [ REMOVED ] if you'd like to see if they are in your area. After only two weeks, I feel a lot better already, which I attribute mostly to the higher protein than I had before. The plan focuses on a specific combination of foods designed to optimize your metabolism. I lost 6 lbs the first two weeks, and hopefully it will keep going. Good luck!

i had att in dec of 2004 i was always skinny, 10 years ago i started putting on weight a lot of it once i got to 194 it stayed like that, now that my levels are stable for the first time in years i lost 25 lbs in 6 weeks, just eating 1200 calories a day no breads pasta potatoes,cakes cookies etc. now i am still loosing and i went down 4 sizes i pray that i can keep it off. so hang in there it can be done!
Thanks for posting your successes - it gives me hope!!! I've lost 11 pounds but it seems like the only way I can lose is if I eat so little I'm literally shaking. I've cut way down on carbs, fats and sugars and added more protein. I'm tired and weak all the time. People really don't understand how hard it is.
I see a new endocrinologist in about 3 weeks and I can't wait. With the help of this board I have compiled a list of questions and tests I'd like run.
