    Hello

    I also have hypothyroidism and struggling to lose. I am yet to find a diet which will work for me. Good luck with your diet and exercise. My dr asked me to do low carb and I am trying to do that with our Indian food.

    Take care
    Anjana

    Thanks Anjana :)

    I'm trying to eat less carbohydrates and more protein..Need to see whether it'll work or not...So far no weight loss, though not going higher as well,which was not the case earlier..it's a standstill for now.

    Hello... Don't be depressed, I am sure you will start losing soon. Are you on thyroid medication? I was on, but stopped last year. Might have to restart again.

    I am trying to avoid rice and wheat, but not very successful yet. Not able to exercise everyday also

    Take cate
