I have hypothyroidism and am on Armour Thyroid. I am now back to what i used to weigh. I also have a deficiency of vitamin D and calcium and am on supplementation.

I also just moved out on my own on May 20, 2017, and am still trying to get what I need. Keeping lists and finding ecologically friendly ways to clean my apartment has been challenging.

I am attending Gateway Community College in New Haven, CT. I take 2 classes a semester, 2 days a week. I am looking for a B.S.E.E.E. from Purdue University, once I transfer my credits. I am finishing my general education requirements here to save money. I have been doing very well so far, scoring mostly As and 1 B+ for Literature. I know my Asperger's makes me less able to comprehend stories, even short ones, and didn't expect to get an A in that one. They are not concrete information, which my brain is wired for. But I am doing well in Math. I just got put on the Dean's List in December 2017. I want to be an Environmental Engineer one day; it uses a lot of math, which is easy to understand, so I think I will do well in that job. And it will use my passion for protecting the planet as well.

Why did WW kick me out of this website?
If pointsplussers is the weight watchers group you're talking about, it looks like you are still in it. I looked at your profile to find this out. You are in 3 groups, but I don't see any challenges listed. Maybe the challenge you were in ended. When did you join and which challenge?

Body Weight and Glycogen Depletion
If you're hypothyroid, your liver loses it's ability to store glycogen. This slows your metabolism down, as it can't convert thyroid hormone. So, if you're hypothyroid and taking medication for it, burning off all your glycogen is actually bad. Can make you feel like crap, too. Lowers the body temperature, makes you gain weight, makes you tired, constipates you (digestion relies on thyroid hormone, too). My lower legs and feet were actually swollen when i was diagnosed; I didn't even notice it until my endo saw it.

What do you truly wish for yourself besides weight loss?
Good health. A career that lets me help save the planet and makes me enough to get everything I need, including an LEED Platinum house, finishing my education, food, and paying all my medical bills. Learning how to work with my asperger's and the different things i can do to help myself.

Need to add 6 meals a day
That's what i do. I eat 6 times a day with 3 meals and 3 snacks. I just put all my snacks into snacks/other. But it would be nice if FS would let you add each snack individually.
