Over the years I've had hypo symptoms, I've put on 6 stone
Some of it's cake, but I eat less than my kids, and gain weight even on the strictest diet (e.g. Weight watchers, 5:2 and low carb - tried 'em all!) I read in STTM that trying to lose weight when hypo and not properly medicated can do more harm than good, so am trying not to worry to much about what I eat while I get to the right NDT dose. It's hard though. I saw a video of me today at an event last night, and hardly recognised the huge mountain of a woman on the screen as me.
2 questions: Those of you who's hypo status is well managed, did you find it easy/easier to lose weight once you found your correct medication dosage?
Is it your experience that STTM is correct about dieting and exercise being harmful whilst trying to sort out your hypo status? The way I look depresses me so much, I'd like to do some additional exercise but not if it'll set my recovery back.
Thanks in advance!
