I've been on 100 mg thyroxine for 8 weeks and am not seeing any positive impact on weight. During this time have gone mostly gluten free, taking selenium, sea kelp and drinking chlorophyll all to try and help. It's really getting me down as I feel like no mater how little I eat my body keeps recalibrating going to keep me at the same weight. I have a young baby (9minths) who often is awake during the night and am trying so hard to loose weight even on very little sleep and nothing is working. I need to loose a stone and a half and it just won't budge.
My reading was 8 when I started my medication and that had gone up from 5.5 in a year. I feel better and my skin is better but still not 100 % I don't think. But the lack of sleep doesn't help me really get an accurate picture of anything!!
I am just desperate to shift this weight. Has anyone actually lost weight once their medication was right? Need some advice and inspiration? Does the blood sugar diet work? Going to try that next but I know the 800 cals a day will be tough with little sleep and a young baby to chase around!!
