I am not sure if this is the place to post this since I don't have a photo to share. I just wanted to encourage others that may be struggling with weight issues. I have estrogen and thyroid issues and for the past 2 months despite diet and exercise I hadn't lost one single pound. It was so fustrating!!! Especially when I shared my disappointment with someone that doesn't have weight problems. She looked at me like I must not be telling the truth and said "Are you sure there isn't more food your eating and forgetting to mention." It's rough when you know your doing all you can do and it doesn't seem to be working. But I kept up with diet and exercise and came to this forum to look at all the amazing photos and read the stories. You guys have truly been the encouragement I needed. After 2 months of no change this weeks weigh in shows a loss of 8 pounds! Now that may not seem like a lot but with the thyroid and hormone issues I have this has been a hard fight. So I am pleased to finally be past the plateau. For all of you out there that may not have the quick results that some have don't give up! It may be tougher for us but it will happen. Even more important than the 8 pounds I feel great!
