following: Calorie Count 1200-1400 per day
performance: losing 0.5 lb a week

I am 51yr old widowed female. 5'7" tall. No children, sort of a work-aholic who has been trying to loose weight since March 2010 with very minor success.

At my annual check-up in March 2010 found that I had gained about 30 lbs in 2 years with no change in my diet. My doctor found that my TSH levels were elevated and it has been a struggle since to get my thyroid hormones under control. Still believe that my t-12 hormone level continues to be low, but am slowly feeling a bit better. I have managed to loose 20.5 lbs on a severely calorie restricted diet from March to December but still need to ramp up the weight loss. Calorie count per day is between 1200 and 1600 calories. I do exercize, though probably not at the level I should.

I am looking for advice from others who have thyroid problems to advise me as to what works! Naturopathic medicine is my thing, and I do not want to have surgery just to get the weight off. My knees are giving out on me, and I want to travel and really LIVE my life and not have the weight hold me down.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

HELP dealing with temptation
I have found with cravings to just go for the small portion and work the calories into the budget. Everyone falls off the wagon but the trick is to just get back up and keep going. Once you satisfy the craving with a little bit, then I find that I do not eat too much of everything else trying to outlast the craving. Your body is trying to tell you something and you should listen to what it needs.

I like KatieKinz statement. I do the same thing and call it a cheeseburger salad, and it satisfies the craving for a cheeseburger..
