I began my Spark Journey 20 days ago and have blogged each day of it. It started with me wanting to lose 15 lbs, that was it..just lose 15 lbs. Sounded easy enough, I had done it before easily. After 18 days of not losing one pound after really pouring myself into proper nutrition and exercise I began to investigate more into Hypothyroid..which I had been diagnosed two years ago. I went on the SP Message boards and found that all the Hypo people were having the same problem! We could not lose weight! I contined researching this battle that hypo's face and began to realize that this was not going to be just a diet for me..this was going to have to be life long change I would have to make in order to lose weight and keep it controlled from here on out. One SP member wrote that she had been Hypo for over 25 years and she had controlled with a low carb diet (the Zone) and exercise for minimum of 30 minutes a day regularly. I began to move to a low carb diet and exercising regulary and after 18 days...I finally lost 6 lbs! it worked, or I worked..but really SP worked!! I can't begin to tell you how thankful I am to SP for leading me on this new journey of health and happiness. If it wasn't for my fellow Sparkers talking..I never would have made this realization and would still be struggling today. For all those Hypo's out there, patient and don't give up! SP can help you and with the dedication of yourself and help from can begin to lead a healthy and happy life too. Thank you Spark People for showing me the way!!!
