So I don't worry as much that my scale isn't reflecting my hard work lol.
Cathy keep up the hard work girl!!
I am SO glad I stumbled onto this, MichelleRae! I was born without a thyroid and my weight has been a life-long struggle. I've tried so many things over the course of my life but have just recently re-committed myself to doing it once and for all! I'm going to start strength training and lifting weights as part of my routine and I hope that this proves true for me, too.
What kind of diet do you follow? I've heard that low-carb/high protein works best for people with thyroid issues, so I was going to try that, but I'd be interested in what works for you, too.
It's so good to find someone on here who's similar to me and has similar goals!
