    I am on 175mg thyroxine and have lost just over a stone since starting in october, i've been doing EE and I feel really good!

    Melissa, I've had trouble with my thyroid since I was very young, about 5, my main symptom I notice if my dose isn't right is I get very very tired and struggle to concentrate.

    I have taken thyroxine for 18 years, and yes you can lose weight as long as you stick to the plan, there's no difference.

    This is really good to hear guys! One of my best friends was diagnosed with Thyroid Cancer a couple of months ago and is now on medication for life, as her thyroid was removed. She's put on a lot of weight and is terrified she won't be able to lose it.

    I'll pass on all your great stories :)

    I'm really pleased to hear all the good results from fellow hypothyroid folk. I am on 125 mcg ( have been for 10 years) and have just started SW. Previously I was on a TFR diet and lost a stone, so it can be done, the weight will go, its just the staying with the program I guess ;)
