I need help. I have hypothyroidism and I take 150mgs. The trouble is that no matter what I do, I can't shift the weight. My eating is getting more and more disordered (I have suffered from an ED in my youth). If I am not restricting what I eat, then I am purging what I do eat (not binging though). I exercise as much as I can - last Saturday I did 4 hours on the treadmill. I am getting to the point where I think if I put any food in my mouth, I will gain weight. I am certainly NOT losing weight.
I tried talking to my doctor and her response was "you are in the normally weight range. You need to learn to chill".
But she is wrong! I am 5,3 and 133lbs. At 9 1/2 stone, that makes me on the heavy side. My ideal weight should be between 105 and 120lbs. Somewhere around 8 stone.
Is there something else to do with my thyroid that could be making it hard to lose weight (unless I restrict to below 500 calories a day?)
I know what I am doing is unhealthy but if I eat like normal people, I would be morbidly obese in no time.
