I am 32 years old and have been on a diet since I left school! I was always struggling with the same 1 stone ( on off on off). Then back in July 2011 I was diagnosed with Graves disease which is an overactive thyroid. I was so poorly as it was so overactive. They couldln't even see how overactive it was as it was to high to measure. Anyway I was an unlucky one that did not lose weight I just stayed the same and once I was on medication I put on 1lb a day for about 3 weeks taking my weight up to 13st. I was mortifed and nothing I did would stop it going up. Luckily though it stopped eventually but then losing the weight was my next biggest battle!!!!
3 years on and after a thyroidectomy I have finally managed to lose 1 stone and now see the light at the end of the tunnel. I am starting to get back into my pre illness clothes but still need to lose 7lb to get back to where I started and then a further stone to get to my goal weight of 10 1/2 stone.
I am going to use this site as my motivation to get there and am going to log everything i do and eat. I am a member online on the weight watchers site but feel by doing my own diary on here keep me on track.I have tried propoints before but after liking the old ww discovery I never really gave it 100%.
So here i go on day 1 of my final journey! 2014 is the year when i finally get a grip on it all.Please feel free to offer any advice!!! I need all that I can get
