I'm 33, married without kids and have been overweight all of my life. I had never seriously dieted before now. Attempts to "eat better" were always half hearted at best. Medically, my weight is an issue; I am insulin resistant and have high blood pressure. A major contributing factor is that have Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, an autoimmune condition that is killing my thyroid. I was diagnosed in 2004 and lost 60 lbs in less than 6 months without any effort after being put on thyroid supplements. Unfortunately, the increased energy from the thyroid supplement doesn't last forever.

I started on this weight loss journey in November 2011 after "the talk" from my primary care doctor about weight loss surgery or diet pills as a medical recommendation based on my age and BMI. I have a close friend that has been successful after gastric bypass, but I feel I need to make a real attempt at losing weight on my own before considering surgery.
