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.
