I also have hythyroidism and wanted to loose weight. About a month ago starting using this site to track what I ate, then about two weeks ago really started trying to exercise. I have lost 5 pounds and have gained some energy. I am also experiementing with a supplement I saw on Dr. Oz called 7-Keto that is supposed to aid in boosting thyroid and metoblism. This should definately be discussed with your doctor as I did with mine, so we can check my thyroid levels in a month to see it's affects. But I thought it definately worth mentioning along with keeping a diet journal. Good luck, but even with hypothroid it's possible to loose weight.View Thread
