Oh yeah been there done that my hypothyroidism turned out to be Hoshimotos disease which is the immune system attacking the thyroid I ended up stopping the tests and taking vitamin b for energy and nibbling and nibbling on veggie snacks, low cal dressing salads, small portions of lean meats, and trail mix and drinking lots a water all day long never never going hungry and doing short easy exercises 10 minutes three times a day lost 30 lbs and looked great.
Now gotta start all over again cause that was five years ago and i gained twenty lbs by going back to not exercising at all and eating whatever yikes. still got thyroid problems though.
But do exercise only in small increments thru out the day check out the facts on that by googling it! And do lots of healthy nibbling watch the calories and finish the testing by having your thyroid hormone level checked if ya can stand it.View Thread
