    Hi, I was wondering if any of you guys in here have an under active thyroid and are on the Slimming World diet, if so what is your secret, cause no matter what I try the weight doesn't seem to budge :cry:

    Hi just new to forums & came across this thread. I have had my thyroid removed & take thyroxine daily. Only on my 1st week back at SW but previously lost nearly 3 stone with not to much difficulty. Do you find you don't lose or is it coming off slowly?

    My gma does. She found that in the first few weeks of SW she put ON weight every week! She persevered and has now (albeit slowly) lost 3 1/2 stone so I'm not sure whether her body just needed to get used to the diet.

    There's my tuppence!

    My friend who does slimming world with has got a thyroid problem, she has got quite a bit to lose and seems to be doing just fine atm. Have a chat with your GP and explain your concerns.

    Hey guys, thanks for the replys, I have been on the SW diet loads of tims before I found out I had an underactive thyroid, now I seem to put on weight when i do the diet. I have been to my GP and everything seems fine with my thyroid levels,well fine enough to not have to up my dose of thyroxine. Its sooooo depressing,lol.
