I am really irritated. Every time I lose weight, I can't keep it off. Before I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism and pros, I weighed 214-218 pounds. That was in 2010 and it was after losing 30 lbs. I went to a dr app In March and the scale said 218 pounds. Then in May, the scale said 278 lbs. I was asked over and over if my eating habits changed but they were the same. In 2011, I finally got my diagnoses. Fast forward to May of 2013. I weighed in at 279.5. By October, I was down to around 258 but I fluctuated and then my weight went to 264. It stayed there until I tried a medication for anxiety at the beginning of January. The doc said it was weight neutral but I gained 8 lbs while taking it. It didn't work so I stopped it and a little bit of weight came back off. Fast forward to today and I am back at my starting weight. 279.
I don't know what to do. The doctors basically blamed me for my conditions. They said by being overweight, I caused my hormones to lose balance which is a bunch of bull but I am feeling really discouraged.
I don't know if the medicine I take now for the anxiety has an impact on my weight but I cannot stay at this weight.
So I am asking all of you for encouragement to get ack into this fight and not allow it to knock me down. Also, if there are any recipes that make veggies not as unappealing, please share. I am not a big fan of the ones on spark people but if there is one you had much success with, that is awesome!
I am a shorty and want to get this weight off for both my health and confidence. If you are wondering, my height is 5'4. Yikes! That means I am morbidly obese.
I need to get my thyroid levels checked soon but have been running into problems with the labs so we will see. I will not accept this weight. My friend is having a wedding in November so maybe that can serve as motivation.
Okay, encouragement please. :)
Oh, and remember, any rude comments will be deleted so don't waste your breath. I don't want to hear any...."I lost weight with my thyroid Mede, you should be able to too." Everyone is different.
