Hi, I have lost 1 stone. I need to lose 9 more stone to be healthy. Is there anyone else out there with a lot of weight to lose? I have hypothyroidism and it makes me prone to weight gain. I am also on medication, which I need, however the main side effect is to feel hungry all the time.
I am trying out salads with beans and lentils instead of the massive amount of sugar and carbs I usually eat.
My dietician has given me some really good pointers to help me control my weight. I have tried weight loss pills in the past prescribed by my GP unfortunately they didn't work for me. I tried going to the gym which I didn't stick at. I will try again when I have lost some more weight. The gym showed me just how unfit I am. So I don't just need to lose weight I also need to become fitter. I can now say that I am 19 stone instead of the 20 stone I was last month. So I guess I am moving in the right direction even if it is slowly. Although I have been a member of health unlocked for months I have never worked out how to get the most from the site. Anyone else in the same boat? I consider myself a newbie as I have barely used the site and I have only just started to take weight loss seriously enough to make lifestyle changes.
