It is.. but at the same time, too many people will just say "oh I have a thryoid condition, nothing will help" But I have lost (and managed to keep off) 15lbs (17 from when I started trying to lose last year).. with my levels going up and down. That is a HUGE accomplishment. The Dr I saw Friday is honestly surprised I have managed to keep the scale steady with my levels going down so slowly and was not surprised at all to hear that my weight did start going back up when I went from 5 to 12 in 2 months.

I'm like. Yes I have a thyroid problem. I do my best with my diet, and if my weight didn't cause so much leg and foot pain in my injured limbs I would probably get in a lot more exercise... but SOMETHING has to start the freaking weight loss because eating right just isn't going to cut it.

I'm slowly starting to lose some weight again. I've been bouncing between 219 and 222 for months, and it's slowly creeping back down. I'm guessing that's my levels going down again... which is odd because I'm still on the same dose as before (until tomorrow) on the generic... so I'm thinking something I was taking... even though I researched the hell out of everything.. was affecting it. We will just have to see what my Labs say at the end of the month.
