Hi Freakshow! I'm hypothyroid (low thyroid) - is that the kind of disorder you have? If so, once your medication dosage is adjusted correctly, your thyroid problems shouldn't keep you from reaching your goal weight.

I used to blame my obesity on being hypothyroid, but then I woke up and realized that it was really because I ate too many calories and didn't exercise. Once I changed my eating and started exercising every day, the weight came off fast (122 pounds in a little less than a year). So yes, it sure is possible to lose weight despite thyroid problems!
