Hi Shelley,
I don't have much experience with potential issues from insulin resistance or thyroid, but I always welcome a new buddy. Feel free to add me. Smile

I went from morbidly obese to being the owner of TABDIG - a weight loss coaching service that helps people worldwide losing weight. It's been an amazing journey. From October 4th 2010 to April 3rd 2012 I lost half my body weight - 80 kilos/170 lbs. Since then, I have had two cosmetic surgeries to remove excess skin. I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, living healthy and helping people to reach the very same goals. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier! If you feel that you need help losing weight, don't hesitate to send me an inbox message.

add me as well, are you following a diet or exercise plan or looking for something tailored to your medical needs? (sorry, I'm not extremely familiar with either) Do a search in the forums to see if you can find anything that relates that may help you!

That was me! I struggled after having my last baby. Started 2012 at 173lbs. I produce too much insulin and have a "sluggish" thyroid...as my doctor put it. started 2013 just under 125 so it can be done!

I've always had thyroid trouble too. I had some blood work done about six months ago and it's found that I too produce too much insulin like Preggo38. I haven't been as successful as preggo but I lost about 35lbs in 2012 and am aiming to lose the last 15 by the end of March although I'm already more than half way there since I started Dukan one week ago. You can add me if you like ...we can "chat"

Dukan worked for me far better than Atkins. I was always leary about the amount of fat on atkins.

Carbs counting
Carbs - fiber = net carbs. You count net carbs.

Vegetable pasta
Try Miracle Noodles. Not flour/carby pasta but a great carb free option.

How do you measure your body fat percentage?
I use a Tanita Scale. Works great.
