Testing 1,2,3...

So, since I go to the USA I have gained a not so delightful 50lbs. It seems more than a little unfair as I really haven't been eating to excess, stuffing myself with fast food and/or donuts, or anything else that should warrant such a fast gain.
Admittedly the lifestyle here is a 'drive thru' one where you pretty much don't have to walk anywhere further than from your car to the door of wherever you are going, but still. Something isn't right.
Three weeks of Weight Watchers saw me GAIN 5lbs!!!! How disapointing?!

So, I am going to the doctors on April 9th, for a bunch more tests, one of which will be a Thyroid Function test. I am also being referred to a dietician, so I can at least discuss what my best options are - besides surgery which I really do not want.

I'll let you know how it goes.

Hi there...
I used to weigh 120lbs when I first came over. I wanted to eat everything, and did !
Over the years, I would yo yo up and down, but once I hit 40 I was diagnosed with under active thyroid and now take the pills. I'm a bread eater, that's my downfall ;).
Nice to visit with you...

This is the land of temptation! I find it so hard not to eat the wrong type of food. That said, if you're gaining weight with weight watchers maybe something aint right.

Good luck.

I tried weight watchers and gained for the first couple months too...then my body got used to what was happening and i lost. I lost about 40 pounds on it to be honest. Then i got lazy and started eating by my emotions and gained 25 back before mine and Pauls wedding.

Go to the doc to rule out other things- but give WW a few more weeks before you give up on it Kelly, hun.

Hugz Sis!!!!

Good luck with the test, I was diagnosed with Graves Disease after being here just over a year (an autoimmune Thyroid disease).
