Discussions that mention synthroid

Thyroid Disorders board


I too have gained lots of weight - it's hard - but if we hang in there I have great hope we can get better - there are people on the board who show us it can be - I am so grateful they stayed here to give us hope! I eventually lost a lot of weight after I started synthroid - but it took several months to start coming off - but then another stupid med (not related to thyroid) put it all back on last fall - my metabolism is just not the same and I am still coming to terms with that....My body shape has changed too - I am much bigger than my Mom ever was! But since I lost the weight once before, I know it will be possible again.....hang in there - we can support each other through all this.....
Best wishes,
Kathy
