I presented with graves disease 11 years ago. I struggled with weight for that long too!
My endo suggested WW, and I looked at him like he was high. I wanted diet pills. He told me that a person with Graves disease does not need diet pills. Well 8 years later I gained 30 pounds due to BP meds, anti depressents, you name it. After I had to start sticking my finger for diabetes I said this is crazy!
So I went to WW and lost 45 pounds.
I was 3 pounds from goal weight and got cocky and gained 8 pounds. No problem I thought. Well I also quit smoking August 6. I gained 10 pounds and holding.
Well I'm having a heck of a time. I had to have my synthroid increased and I still think i need another adjustment after being stable for 3 years! I go to the doctor Friday.
I guess for the most part and to end a long story...I looked at Hydroxy Cut yestday and thought, no Stephanie. Don't go there. Stick with what you know is right. Now if I can jsut convince my brain that I don't want to eat sweets instead of smoking, I'll do just fine.
