Me being the lazy writer that I am I wont get into a long story about my weight. I'll just summarize it and make it simple.
Have a thyroid disease. Weighed 300+ pounds. Finally started taking medicine. Got to 170 pounds. Thyroid problems again. Gained 70 pounds in about a year and a half. Doctor finally listens to me (I was experiencing a lot of symptoms) and increases medicine. So here I am, at 240 now trying to get back to 170 and hopefully lower. Ever since my medicine was increased I've been feeling better. Stopped gaining weight without trying. Losing around a pound a week without doing much. I'm getting lipotripic and b-12 shots from my ob/gyn now too. Apparently that'll help my fat metabolize more efficiently.
