I was diagnosed with Graves Disease back in 1988 had the RAI treatment now that there is no function its hypo. Its been a long road but now Im 49 and I guess the weight gain comes with age and high choesterol too.Im limited to what I can do as far as exercise since 1998. I was in a serious MV accident and was lifeflighted, in a coma for 4 days injuries were several and over the past 10 years have acquired long term effects. All in all God willing I am fortunate to still be here and I can relate to so many people in here but Im trying to focus on what works best for me.I have turned to Christianity I think I have a lot to be thankful for. 3 wonderful childdren all grown and 2 grandchildren. I am on disability now but have finished my degree in paralegal and criminal justice which I was attending my final course prior to my accident. Im thinking of returning to college =never too old I guess but I would like to lose about 16 pounds right now Im at 149 but never over 128 at full term when I was carrying. I think those days are gone so Im trying for a more reachable goal. I also am involved in the antique business which I took over when my dad passed. He was a well known auctioneer and appraiser. Finally, Iam a total NASCAR fan for those of you who follow-- obviously Im a Bobby Labonte fan! Maybe someday I will meet a Bobby Labonte!LOL I hope to share stories here with everybody who crosses my path. Stay healthy happy and safe. God Bless you all! xxxx-Karen

    Thanks for the comment. It's a relief to know someone else has been through the same thing. I will definately keep that in mind with the HRT.

    Thanks for thinking of me. I had a great summer riding my bike and working out until the end of July. I over did it and got three stress fractures, the right knee was the worst. Last Thursday, the day before hurricane Ike (live in Katy, TX) I was trying to get ready for the storm and broke my right toe in four places, so back on the painful crutches. I needed surgery but because everything was closing we held off. Today, I find out if we plan to precede with surgery. This has totally ruined my workout streak. :( It's so hard not being able to do anything. However, I'm trying to stay positive. Thanks for your thoughtfulness. How are you doing? Hugs, Wanda

    Thanks for the warm welcome. I believe thaat my thyroid problems started from my pregnancy. I have other auto-immune type problems. Going approx. eight years undiagnosed was not good. Now to just get this weight off. One step at a time. God be with you.
