Wink Joining you :)

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.
