Anybody else with thyroid issues?

I swear I am seriously depressed. I weighed myself today and I am at 198lbs 5' 3". Just 10 under when I had my baby 3 months ago. I am already on 250 micromiligrams of synthroid. When will this weight come off?!?

  • My husband, mom, and mother-in-law all take synthroid and struggle with their weight. It's going to an uphill battle, I'm sad to say. Doctor's can up your synthroid to take the weight off, but they usually won't unless you're gaining. If you're holding steady, they will tell you to diet and exercise. Try talking to the doc, but if that doesn't work, Weight Watchers has some programs tailored to thyroid problems.
