I LIZ, MY NAME IS COLLEEN. WEIGHT GAIN HAS BEEN A BIG PROBLEM FOR ME SINCE THE RAI TREATMENT I’VE GAINED 30-40 LBS IN THE LAST YEAR. I’M TRYING A NEW APPROACH. SINCE I CAN’T EXERCISE BECAUASE I’M ON THAT BETA BLOCK 3 X DAY, I’M GOING TO GO ON A PARTIAL VEG AND FRUIT JUICE DIET. SOUNDS CRAZY DOESN’T IT! IT HAD TO BE JUICE FROM FRESH VEG AND FRUIT. THE IDEA IS TO GET UP TO 5-6 GLASSES OF JUICE A DAY ALONG WITH 1 NORMAL (BUT SMALL MEAL) AT DINNER. I MAY TURN INTO A RABBIT BEFORE THEN BUT THAT’S THE PLAN. I HATE VEG JUICE, BUT I DON’T LIKE GOING FROM A SIZE 8 TO 14-16. NOTHING FITS AND IT IS SO DEPRESSING TO GO SHOPPING. FORGET ABOUT BUYING SKIRT AND JACKET SUITS FOR WORK. MY BUTT COULDN’T GET INTO ANYTHING WITHOUT A STRETCHY WAISTBAND. HAVE YOU NOTICED THAT YOUR FEET ALSO GET BIGGER. MY SHOES WERE 7B AND NOW I TAKE A 8 WIDE SHOE. WELL, THE PLAN IS TO LOSE 20 LBS BEFORE THE NEW YEAR BEGINS. OH OK, 10 LBS DOES THAT SOUND MORE REALISTIC. HEAVENS! THINKING ABOUT IT MAKES ME TIRED. LET ME KNOW HOW YOU DOING AND IF YOU KNOW OF ANYONE CRAZY ENOUGH TO TRY THIS JUICE THING AND IF IT WORKED!
When I was dignosed with Graves I was really,really hyper. Ihad every classic symptom but instead of losing weight I gained like 40 pounds! After RAI Ibecame hypo in about 10 weeks. Then I lost 35 lb.s in 8 weeks. Now I weigh 60 lbs. more than I did for the majority of my 20’s 30′ and teens. I am trying to work out a little but I have no wind and I get dizzy and lightheaded very easily . I am completely bummed about this. Help!!!
