I am in the process of trying to lose weight. I have a condition called Hypothyroidism which makes it harder to lose weight but easy to gain it. I developed the condition after my last daughter was born. I went through the pregnancy fine but after she was born I noticed that I had gained a lot of weight fast and I wasn't doing anything different. I went to the Dr and had a blood test done and it was discovered that I had Hypothyroidism. That meant having to take medication forever what a bummer. I have now started a diet and so far I have lost 4 lbs. It is through a Dr Stan Owens. His web site is www.drdiet.com you can go there and order what you want. It is a phase diet where you add different things with each phase. I will continue to give updates.
