Total thyroidectomy and weight loss
I'm new to this forum and I've been doing SW for 1 year. I had a total thyroidectomy a couple of years ago and been on levothyroxine ever since (and felt terrible and foggy). I'm in the process of switching to armour thyroid to see if it helps but had some complications over Christmas which have resulted in my tsh being 60 which has meant I was very under active. Until this point I had lost 3 and a half stones in the year. During christmas wheat my lowest I did still lose weight. But 4 weeks later I find I'm now gaining weight even though I am being so very strict on SW and doing it to the letter. I've even now cut out some of my syns to see if it helps.
does anyone know if my low levels of thyroxine could take a few weeks to affect my weight as this is the only thing I can think of.. I'm finding it a bit depressing at the moment as I'm not just at a standstill I'm putting weight on!
Im not going to give in but it is affecting me emotionally and making me feel a bit futile. Or could this even be a bit of a plateau? I've got another 3-4 stone to lose.
Any advice, knowledge or encouragement welcome
