Thyroid Update #800,000!

I feel like im always updating about my hypothyroidism, with no updates. Nothing is changing except for my medication dose.

I got on meds and was started with a little WHITE pill(50mcg). 3 months later i went to a specialist and was increased to a little GREEN pill(88mcg). 6 weeks later and feeling even worse than before, i was increased to a little YELLOW pill(100mcg). 4 weeks later (yesterday), i had my levels checked yet again. I knew it was still low cuz i was still tired, moody, depressed, constipated, and was loosing no weight even though i dont over eat (to be honest i under eat) and working out. But some days i would feel better. Less bloated and happier, more like myself. But then the following day id feel crappy again. But at least this round i had SOME ups.

Well my meds have been increased and now, i have a....................................................................

PINK PILL!!!!!!(112mcg)

Pink is my absolute favorite obsessive color :), hopfully this will be the lucky dose! Let us pray.
and becuase i dont like to post without some sort of picture..............
Oh i am PRAYING i get to say goodbye to the pudge belly.

You beat me. I'm on 75mcg, but think I need to go up. I'm pretyy much feeling the same way. Hope this works girly. Pink rocks!

I do understand that this issue keeps you from losing weight but be careful with under eating too because it can cause you to hold on to fat because your body goes into starvation mode. Don't eat less then 1400 calories a day and make sure it's good healthy stuff like fruit, veggies and whole grain carbs! Hopefully this pink pill will do the trick!

It takes a while. Don't beat yourself up about it. Little by little it should start to work.

After my last pregnancy my TSH shot up to 14. Now I am on 200 mcg and going up!
UGH!!!

I feel your pain. I have hypothyroidism also and have been up to as high as 150. Just recently went down to 137. I was taking 112 at one time then 125 then 150 and now back to 137. People do not understand how miserable you feel when your thyroid is not working! I am a new follower thru GFC and Twitter. I wish I could have followed on FB but last week on a FB blog hop the people from FB said I was spamming because I guess I "liked" too many people??? I have no idea because they won't answer my emails. They suspended my FB page for 15 days (5 more to go). So, I am leaving that up to each blogger. You can follow now and leave me a comment on my blog (I have a list of people I need to catch up with) or wait until I can come back and follow you first. I don't mind either way. I will leave the comment on your blog that I followed on FB though. I cannot take the chance of them doing this again. Now they have me paranoid that they will be watching me closer. And that is not fair at all!! I was doing a FB blog hop and everyone who signs up for it is basically giving you permission to come over so I don't see why they made an issue of it. But, like I said, they won't answer me so I am stuck. Thanks for your help on the other follows and just let me know about FB. Hope this 112 is the righ one for you. Have a great day!
