Anyone with Hypothyroidism that has lost weight successfully and kept it off?

I have thyroid problems and it is terribly hard for me to lose weight. Any success stories out there? How did you do it?

  • Do you take thyroid meds? My aunt had thyroid problems too. When she finally got on meds, she dropped 40 lbs in 6 months. BUT, she has to take these meds for the rest of her life. She said it's worth the weight loss though & that she feels great now that her thyroids are regulated. Aparently, if she stops taking her thyroid meds...she will have no metabolism at all. SCARY!
