Jenny Craig – Food, Body and Mind
The internet is a great resource for research. It tracks your daily, weekly and activity points. Where are the mothballs and water placed to keep snakes away. I would count that as part time. You can use the at-home program or start by scheduling a consultation at one of the locations.

Sharon August 05, Adrian Bryant healthy diet and a good exercise program. Darcell I am over pounds and I am trying to lose weight. Adrian Bryant at your weight its very possible. Adrian Bryant use this to lose 36 pounds February 04, I think I pushed myself into a little bit "Hyper" just a little bit because I didn't have to eat carefully, I didn't have to exercise , nothing, the weight just peeled off. I felt normal for 2 years. Then something awful happened, my doctor retired and my next doctor who was an Endo said that my TSH was too low and told me to reduce my dose, I did as I was told I will never do that again!
I still got the "lets reduce your dose" line, but this time I am increasing the dose on my own, and my weight is dropping. Doctors are hung up on this TSH reading and will not measure T3, the very hormone which will make us feel normal and give us the energy to move around and therefore not put on weight. There are so many reports of these symptoms, I don't know why nothing changes.
I have been on it about 8 months and i swear i'm gaining weight. How is this possible. Will the weight gain slow down. I have been on Levo for approx 3 years. Never had a weight problem. Right away I began gaining weight and it is still climbing. I eat very little. I don't trust the medical profession anymore. It is big business and it all revolves around money. I am thinking of discontinuing this Med also. I feel it has screwed my system up.
I need to get back to what is natural. Physicians don't want to take time from their busy schedule to listen to how you feel. They know so much. I know my body pretty well. What works for one may not for another. He said, "I am talking. I have to now rely on my own intuition. Very sad what this industry has done to itself. I started taking my meds in , I started with Hyper thyroids and now I am Hypo I am still at and have been for years.
I did get to but gained my weight back quick. I have dieted, exercised, walked, and I can't seem to lose weight. I was never this big until I started taking these meds. I read someone else gained weight and they look like they were 6 months pregnant, that's how I look. My stomach is out there and it is uncomfortable and doesn't look right. I have decided to stop taking these meds at least for 6 months to see what happens.
If I lose weight, than I know it was the meds. I hope this helped. I went to my endocrinologist begging someone to answer why I sweat so severely and this year I can't tolerate heat.
It makes me insane going out in oppressive heat. Never mind in six years going from to on the scale. He shook my hand and said, "your T4 is in a great range mcg of med. Sorry your feeling loisy. Have you thought of losing weight? I replied, " not for the lack of trying. He said, " maybe you should try gastric by pass. There is nothing I can do for you. I wish you all the best. Needless to say he is not my doctor. But the kicker is that I am not allowed to going to any other doctor with the Froedtert systom because because they have this crazy rules.
I stupid is that. I take levothyroxine and Dr told me to lose weight. I've been on strict diet due to taking these pills I gained 25 lbs.. I was in years!! I don't want to take them. They stress me out trying to lose weight n I'm gaining. I am getting depressed if anything. Diagnosed 6 yrs ago hypothyroidism my Dr has increased my mcg to my weight has gone from to I stopped taking levo for several months and I lost a few pounds.
Decided to see an endocrinologist and see if there were other problems, all she did was check thyroid put me back on levo and I gained 5 more pounds. I hate this medication. I am going back to all natural way, again. My Dr said I would be so tired bc my thyroid levels would be low.
Well I am fine. Will check back in 2 months to update. All I can say is if you are considering quitting the drug The exact same thing has happened to me, I exercise, eat right, and the scale won't budge. I am also extremely fatigued and tried, so the other I decided to stop taking this med and this is my second day off and boy the energy I have. I will be anxious to see if the weight comes off, went from to I am happy to report that since March my weight has gone from down to I do exercise and watch what I eat.
I take daily vitamins and B12 which was recommended when I was diagnosed. I am not tired as doctor predicted. I wish everyone luck if you get off this evil medication. I'm in a similar situation - can you share how long it took to lose weight gained on Synthroid and any special things you did to get there?
I stopped taking med in March. I exercise 3 or 4 times week on my Gazelle for 30 minutes. I drink lots of water, no sodas and ocassionally tea. I have lost 5 more lbs since July. My pregnant looking belly is GONE!!! She started at 50mcg then to 75mcg and stayed there until last year.
Almost immediately she started to gain weight rapidly She has gained between 25 to 30 lbs mainly in her middle and has a belly which she never had before Her T3 was in range but on low end of range but her GP refused to add T3 or put her on dessicated. The GP is her primary care Dr. I should her this site with so many having same issue. She went off levo for two weeks and started to lose weight and puffy face started to go away.
Then someone at work scared her with horror stories of what can happen when you stop taking She has started to gain again. Please someone tell me if she can safely go off You probably should talk to your daughter's GP before going off the meds. My GP approved me weaning off because I was borderline low to begin with and did not feel better. I had the same symptoms as your daughter. I gained about 15 pounds in 3 weeks with no diet or exercise change after starting Synthroid and Cytomel.
I also was so bloated that I looked pregnant and my face was puffy - particularly under my eyes. My GP had me take meds every other day for a week, then take half dose every other day for a week, then stop.
To be honest, I was so eager to get off the meds that I weaned over about 5 days instead of 2 weeks. It's been 3 weeks since I took my last dose. I haven't weighed myself yet, but I feel loads better and less bloated, and my clothes are almost fitting.
I would guess that I've lost pounds in the last 2 weeks. I still have a ways to go but am very careful with my diet and exercising a lot. My GP also advised that I work to detox to get the meds out of my system faster.
The plan is to do bloodwork again in about 2 months to see how my body has reacted to no meds. Unless it's really bad I'm not going back on meds. I hate this medicine as well, I've gained weight and I'm always tired I'm getting off this medicine pronto! Weight is down to , slow process but I am losing it despite what my Dr said. For any of you that have problems with feeling tired, try taking time release B mcg. And be sure you take time release. If I miss one day I really feel it. Good Luck to all that decide to get off this horrible drug!!!
I feel that I made the best choice for me. I am going to stop the synthroid, I have gained 20 pounds in 3 months. I am fatigued also. Why should I be a big fat thing laying on the couch. I've been off levo 5 weeks now I feel much better, less bloating..
I cheat a few times a week but get right to it easily. I want to see my new numbers and the I'll start adding back in certain foods. Boy have I ever. I started Levo in September and on October 30 i weighed Apt In Feb I weighed I eat clean and gluten free.
So in total in 18 months I have went from to With clean eating and daily exercise whole time. I go back to Endo this week and i am asking for Armour instead of Levo because I have heard many say they gained on Levo and than lost it on Armour. I gained 15 lbs after starting this medicine. I had trouble sleeping and became extremely depressed and agitated and felt extreme fatigue. I have been off the drug for 3 weeks and am feeling more energetic but can not lose the weight I gained.
I'm on a very low dose of Levothyroxine and have gained 20 lbs. I have always had a flat tummy until I started taking this med. I'm gonna stop for awhile and see if I lose. I watch what I eat and exercise. I'm still off my meds, lost several lbs but still didn't lose it all, I refuse to start taking it again.
I can agree with this to sick of levo it's crap and my weight goes up as easily as 4 to 5 pounds in 2 weeks and nothing ever comes off. I feel really tired depressed and my gp cannot allow me to. This is so wrong. I have even fell asleep at work because I'm so fatigued cannot sleep at night either. Not a medical person so I am speaking from my own feelings. I have been on a very low dose of levothyroxine for about 5 or 6 months.
I have gained around 30 extra pounds; sluggish to no energy. I am 52 and it may be my age, heart trouble, bone disease, fibromyalgia, plantar fasciitis, my depression or just the fact that I hurt too bad to move much. I just know that I have had 3 children and my stomach was not this large, round, or hard when I was 9 months pregnant.
I am beyond miserable. Sorry, I feel your pain. I've never had so many health issues within the past 6 years since put on levothyroxin. I am on mcgs. I just decided in July to go off all my meds and my Bp has never been better, my heart rate has normalized an with the aid of Gowing off wheat and dairy and maintaining exercise, I have lost 18 lbs in 2 months.
I have been into nutrition for many years, good stuff not the cheap stuff and I am feeling better. After going to my endocrinologist for the last time might add, he told me he could help my severe sweating problem and my extreme heat intolerance.
He suggested gastric bypass. He said my T4 was perfect and there was nothing he could for me, was sorry I felt so loisy, and exited the appointment.
I was so depressed, another side effect I cried for 3 weeks. I was diagnosed with pituitary hypothyroidism so I will have to see what will happen. I am banned from getting a new endocrinologist in the Froedtert system. I too am unhappy with this med.
I've gained 30 lbs since surgery. Surgery was I'm still hopeful that I'll get better but I got to admit I'm miserable. If the med isn't causing me to itch it's making my musles weak I sometimes feels like a invalid. Still under the doctor and hoping she doesn't give up on me. Before that, I was the same weight, give or take a couple pounds, for almost a decade. I am 31, so at first I thought it was just hitting that 30's wall of being harder to lose weight.
I look like I am in my second trimester of being pregnant!!! None of my clothes fit. After reading this, I am thinking about stopping my medication for awhile to see what happens. When I started, my levels were over 5, but my recent lab results stated I am a 2. What happens when I stop the meds? Is it safe to do? What other things could I be supplementing with in order to keep my levels where they need to be? Thanks for all your help! My story is exactly the same. I'm 31 and have been taking Levo for years.
Now my clothes don't fit, my belly fat is increasing, and the scale is going up no matter how hard I try. I workout at least 5 days a week and eat healthy. I am the complete opposite to all these posts. I was diagnosed 2yrs ago with hypothyroidism after carbon monoxide poisoning. I take 75mcg of Thyroxin and I put about 2lbs on but have now lost well over a stone in weight.
I eat what I like but have lost my appetite. I've put it down to age 64yrs. I'm beginning to wonder if my thyroid function has returned to normal or gone to hyperthyroid. Anyone with similar problem?? Hi I have experienced the same thing, I have only been on the drug for 5 months and I'm gaining weight when before I always struggled to gain any, it's also messed my period up and was stopping me getting pregnant! I stopped my meds 2 days ago after discussion with my doctor as my levels weren't too bad to begin with, but I have to be tested again in 6 months x.
I am worried what will happened if I stop. I ended up feeling crap to be honest, I stayed offfor 3 weeks but my levels dropped quite bad now I'm on. Horrible drug, I hope you manage to get yours sorted x. I started Levothyroxine in April last year, just abt 1 year ago, but since October I feel that there is something wrong going on with my metabolism. I am so frustrated how this drugs in making me feel that I will probably drop it and try a chinese healer.
I just about had enough of this crappy garbage pretending to be a medicine. Three weeks on levothyroxine and I've gained 3 pounds. On a strict cal. I had been losing weight slowly and steadily up til now.
Has anyone had success losing weight after stopping levothyroxine? I took Synthroid and Cytomel for about 5 weeks and gained about 15 pounds.
I couldn't fit into any of my clothes, particularly pants and jeans. Even my underwear didn't fit!! I'm usually a medium and XL barely fit. I also was so bloated and looked pregnant. With my doctor's approval, I've now weaned off the meds.
It's only been about a week and I'm feeling better and lighter.
