I know it's not good....but....

I lost 8lbs! woo hoo!

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! :-)

Re: I know it's not good....but....

Hey I am very happy for you!! I feel for you though with the darn hyper feeling.

When I had Graves disease, I lost a total of 60lbs. Now I am hypo and put it all back on. I should start losing once I am on meds. HOPEFULLY

When I get well I am going to find me a high paying job. I am tired of staying home and tired of not making money.

Oh well, I must calm down or my bloodpressure will go up

Take care April
