After over ten years on thyroxine for hypothyroidism I'm still fat. My treatment dose is correct in terms of blood results but I find it very difficult to lose weight. As a result of trying I have become insanely fit. Today I managed my 400m swim in 6mins 45secs. I've just been checking on triathlon forums to see where this time lies in the scheme of things and find healthy young men aspiring to achieve 400m in under 7.5 mins. So not a bad time for a fat 50 something woman. Shame I can't run (old leg injury ).
I've been trying to lose weight by eating as late as possible in the day (at the suggestion of my endocrinologist ) so that my eating hours are restricted to noon till 9pm.
We'll see how things go.
