I have been diagnosed with Hashimotos Disease & been struggling for 6 years now.

I have decided to take a more pro-active approach and try to change my lifestyle to a healthier one.

Have been told it won't make a difference and its highly unlikely that I will be able to lose weight but I've never been one to accept defeat.

Have always been a gym junkie and I love the natural high that exercising gives me.

I believe that anyone can achieve their goal...it's all in the attitude

Anyone have any suggestions to help stimulate the metabolism.
I'm absolutely positive I could lose more if my thyroid would just behave.

Goal Weight
Nearly at my goal weight & am still slowly but surely getting there.

Once achieved...The challenge doesn't finish there though.

It's still a daily struggle to keep the weight off.

Quick tip to help others battle those hunger attacks.
When I take multi-vitamins I have found I don't seem to get those hunger attacks.

I did some research & it appears correct, when the body is getting sufficient vitamins, the hunger cravings stop...

Well its worked for me.

My biggest shock was realising I wasn't getting enough iron. I was only getting 20% of my daily allowance & always feeling tired. Suppliments do make a BIG difference.
