When I joined weight watchers in Jan 2005 I weighed in at 147. I know that I was probably over 150 at some point...I'm sure some dr's office has a record of it somewhere. (When I was in High School I was chubby. When I got out of high school, I went on a diet, found the fun of exercise and dropped down to 105 lbs which lasted a few years) Now in all seriousness 150 at 5'3" isn't huge by any means but I didn't like how I felt and looked. I was at weight watchers for 9 weeks and lost 8lbs. I left weight watchers to join the local gym. So from 2005 -2008 I went from 147- 130. So as you can see, I lose weight extremely slow but once I lose it I can maintain it usually within a 3 lb. range. My goal weight at weight watchers was 125 lbs. As of this morning I weighed myself at 124. It took me 4 years to get there but I got there.....my new goal 115lbs! As I'm writing this all down, I really am starting to wonder how having hypothyroidism effects the metabolism. I have read that people tend not to be able to lose weight easily and usually gain weight. With my messed up metabolism it will probably take me another 4 years to lose another 10 lbs.
