Does anyone else find it frustrating to lose weight and to keep it off? I gained a lot of weight when my throid went out and the doctors did not catch it right away. I gained eighty pounds in a matter of months. The doctor I saw was horrible and seemed to blame me for the weight gain. I suggested it was my tyroid and she very snidly said it was not. My tests came back normal at the time. I lived with the symptoms until my gynecologists caught it. I take Levoxyl everyday. I was able to lose the wieght but I swear I can only keep it off for a year and a half and then I gain it back. In the mean time my tyroid seems to go "out of wack" but my tests come out negative. But I feel horrible and the weight keeps coming back on. I gained an average of five pounds a month this last two years since losing about a hundred pounds. I feel horrible. I religiously take my medicine but I gain it back. Is there anything I can do to lose the weight and keep it off? It just seems to have a mind of its own and comes back on. I lost it the right way when I took it off four years ago. I seem to have a set point weight but it is not healty and is considered obese. What can I do? The doctors seem to be no help. I am so frustrated and do not want to live life as an overweight person. It affects me very negativly. I am starting to not want to go out and I am a very social person.

My daughter is in a nasty marriage. She was here for a visit for a week with my grandson, and everything was fine. She went home and her husband was so drugged out and for the first time as I'm aware, he picked her up and threw her on the couch and pinned her down and told her the marriage is over. He's blaming us for his problems that we don't like him and never accepted him. We've...
