In the past couple of years I realized my face became puffy, with swollen cheeks and I felt the same way about looking at myself in pics but my doc tells me it's a symptom of HypoT and with continued meds it will go back to the way it was. So don't worry, just stay on your meds.
Stay on the meds, and drink a lot of water. I mean lots.
I cut out grains ans sugar for a week - basically ate low carb, and I lost 10 lbs of water. The change in my face shape is very noticeable. I guess I was retaining a ton of water from being hypo, and the meds started to help (along with the water and diet).
Thank you everyone. I went to the doctor Monday and requested my levels checked. I have started losing weight the past couple of weeks by lowering my calorie intake and exercising as much as I can. I will definitely try to increase the amount of water I drink to see if that helps.
