hello im starting back on sb.i was on it for a few weeks and did really well,but have not been doing what i should.

i have several medical problems,including hypothroid,asthma,high blood pressure.

i also try not to eat any artificial sweetners,was glad to find a post about sugars and arttificial sweetners.

because of the thyroid issue i have to be careful on some veggies such as cabbage family.

so juggling south beach and thyroid isuue can be confusing,but i see on 3fatchicks theres a group on thyroid.

i have about 100 pounds to lose and need to get going. :)

WELCOME elfchick!
I have Hashimoto's and 100 lbs to lose and have had successful weight loss an a jolt of energy with SB so far. What at first seemed like an uphill battle has become second nature and I'm so glad I can still lose weight with a slow thyroid to fight. I'm on meds, but not the perfect dose yet.
And yes, it will seem confusing at first, but I promise you will get used to it and it will totally gel in a few weeks. I've heard over and over again on 3FC that blood pressure issues seem to disappear after following a healthy diet.
Good luck to you and check in every day. It really really helps.

We have lots of activity here on the beach! Feel free to jump right in. Lots of us check in on the Daily Thread....personals not required. Others check in daily with the On Plan Thread where it's nice to post menus and ask questions about SBD.

Best wishes!
