    I've been looking for the longest time to help my mother to lose weight. She's been through a lot. The doctor a long while ago messed with her thyroid tablets, lowered her current dosage, it's so dangerous to do that, throught experience I learned what happens when they did that! The symptoms include, loss of memory, weight gain, hair loss, swollen ankles, dry skin, lethargy, nervousness, this list goes on. And even today she still suffers with it. Plus she's also got asthma, which is quite severe, a slipped disc, arthritis, and severe depression. I encourage her the best I can to lose weight, it's not easy at the best of days. Eating the right foods has helped. But there are days when I'm depairing and really wanting her to be well. I joined this site so I wouldn't feel so alone in helping her and offering as much support as possible.
    Well, that's why I here.

    Hi and welcome. Have you thought about going to the doctors with her to explain your concerns? Or you could join a slimming club together.
