Tackle the bulge

Last Tuesday morning I weighed 190 lbs. Today I weighed 188.5 lbs. Yes! Having had my thyroxine lowered two weeks ago I didn't know what to expect.

Well done TinyTears4 πŸ‘ Are you going to join the Group Weigh-in? It’s in Events on the forum Homepage, excellent place for giving and receiving support healthunlocked.com/nhsweigh...

I had my thyroxine reduced in December and I found it tough, I was quite tired by the afternoon for several weeks. I also realised that you should take your Levothyroxine on an empty stomach, and leave at least an hour before taking any other medication, caffeine or foods containing calcium, ie morning cup of tea!! 😩 This has made a real difference πŸ‘


Yes indigo blue61 I always follow the empty stomach rule. I was taking thyroxine at night because I found it wasn't kicking in for hours with morning meds but since seeing the Endo I am trying mornings again. Will attempt weigh in site again! #stillcantfindmywayaround! πŸ˜ƒ


I take mine when I visit the bathroom in the early hours, then watch the clock until I can have a cuppa πŸ˜‚

Good luck with the Weigh In . . . I’ll keep an eye out for you over there πŸ‘
