I have just been dxed w hypothyriodism. The ultra sound showed a nodule but the scan and uptake were normal. Yay, no cancer, sarcoid, or goiter. That's a big relief.
After a very rapid weight gain my weight has stabilized at 272. I have several serious health issues. Plus I'm limited to a NuStep for exercise because I have bursitis in both hips and that prevents walking for exercise more than 2 -5 minutes. Pool is the only other alternative and it's to far from home.
While I was on Synthyriod for 2 weeks I lost 2 lbs but have been off it due to the scan. Hoping to be back on it next week. I've also begun WW to get in the habit of eating to lose once the synthyriod had been added back.
I have noticed that my insurance now covers bariactric surgery.
What I'd like to know is If I have the surgery will I be able to lose in spite of my hypothyriod.
Weight watchers is a diet program. You can attend meetings and/or use online toold such as a food tracker etc. You count points. The points come from calculating fat, carbs, protein, and fat. WW has that figured out for you. You will either need their books, online tools, or a points calculator. All of which they will happily sell you. They also encourage It's just a new way to do the same ole same ole.
When choosing a diet you should look at different diets and decide which one you can live with and do over the long term. You should also make sure it's a healthy safe diet.
