Hi there!! I'm glad I found this site!! Seems like most everyone is very nice and helpful. A quick intro and a little about myself

I am 25 and a stay at home mom of 2 little ones (girl 3, boy 2) I'm not new to dieting by any means. Before having kids I did Atkins and lost about 20 lbs until we started trying to get pregnant. After having kids I counted calories and worked out like crazy to lose 30 lbs and then just couldnt lose anymore. My body kinda went crazy and I couldnt get enough sleep, my hair was falling out, and I was miserable. Thats when I was diagnosed with postpartum hypothyroidism.

So now I am doing South Beach since I have read that that is good for people who have thyroid problems. For the first time since losing that initial 30 lbs I am finally losing again YAY. I'd love to lose another 20-30lbs. Oh and I am still working out 5-6 days a week.

Glad to be here

Hi there!
I also have hypothyroidism, and find it incredibly hard to lose weight on Weight Watchers (I was stalled for months at the same weight). I am on week 3 of South Beach and am finally losing weight again (down 9lbs). What's more, I am actually finding the diet relatively easy: I'm not hungry; I like the food choices; and I can see myself being able to do this plan forever :).

It sounds like you're off to a great start (and finding this site helps:)). Good luck.

Welcome! You will love the results on phase I, especially if you have been dieting for years and can't seem to get those last 20 pounds off. I just finished phase I and I am down to 143 (started at 151). In the past, it would've taken me a year to lose that much weight. I am amazed! It is hard on phase I but you can do this.
