Before i got on this med i thought i was going to die ! That little pill has gave me my life back but if i don't it right and eat any junk food i feel like crap ! I love the way i feel is why i am eating right ! Diet soda does a number on me when it comes to weight loss. I drink zero vitamin water from wal-mart sweetened with stevia ! I use 1/2 cup to 31/2 cups of water for flavoring and make childs popsickles out of it ! Hope this helps! emoticon

The Lord is my strength and i know i can do better with the Lords help. The Lord laid it on my heart to start a team called GOD ANSWERS PRAYER AND I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE ANYBODY THAT WANTS HELP TO LOSE THEIR WEIGHT TO JOIN . I KNOW I CAN'T DO THIS WITHOUT THE LORDS HELP !

FormyBella- My Doc just did the same thing, I have a very enlarged Goiter and we have been watching my levels each year, well this past fall I started gaining weight while exercising and watching my eating, well come January I have had only 1 pound come off and my weight has not moved...He has me on a low dose of the Levothyroxine and we are going to see what happens. My levels are in the middle he says, which I don't know what that really means...guess I should've asked...but I struggle each and everyday, crying, depressed, stressed out over not losing any weight when I work out every day, track what I eat, restricted calorie diet and nothing is working..makes me very sad too. Good luck to you and I hope you get results soon too.

Sometimes it can take years for you & your Dr to find the right dosage for you. My Dr found that for me to feel normal, I need a VERY low TSH. Your body might also need more hormones than levothyroxine supplies. Maybe you just need Cytomel added, maybe you need to switch to a natural.

The tests will tell. If it's not the right dosage, they will either increas or decrease the dose. I've been on it for years and once in awhile it does go up and down.
