Re: Help! I need to loose weight

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.

you might try a low carb diet. low carb not no carb.

Re: Help! I need to lose weight

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!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: Help! I need to lose weight

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!

Re: Help! I need to lose weight

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.

Good luck to all of us!!!
