Default hello all you experienced people

Hi everyone. I joined this forum today hoping to interact with others who have been on the atkins and found success.
I have an underactive thyroid and have been on medication for the last 8-9 yrs. My weight goes up and down (down with a great deal of exercise) Is there anyone else with hypothyroidism out there who has found success with Atkins? I'd love to hear from them.
bye
Anu

Default Hi again

Thanks Aubby. It was very nice to know that there is hope for us hypothyroids!
Today is my tenth day on Atkins. In the first week I dropped 3 kilos but I've seem to hit a road block thereafter. I suspect that the initial kilos were mostly water since the swelling I used to have has almost disappeared. I hope I can get a move on again soon.
I'm a little confused on the veggies front.....I really can't stomach raw cabbage and spinach. Can one have cooked veggies that include stuff like onions, tomatoes, peppers, cauliflower etc?
Hoping to hear from you soon,
Regards
Anu

Hi Aubby,
A zillion thanks for the veggie advice....it's such a relief to know that I can have some. And sure, I'll tone down the onions.
I hope your Dr.'s visit went OK and all the numbers that should be down are down and the one that should be up are up.
One more piece of advice pls......I've come to a stop on 3.5 kgs on the 12th day of induction....do you think it's OK to do induction for a couple more weeks?
Thanks again and take care
Anu

Default hypothyroid too

Hi Anu,
Welcome to the post. I have thyroid problems too but am seeming to lose pretty steady. I have only been on atkins for about 5 weeks but feel better than I did when I first started on my thyroid med. I am waking up much better and have level energy throughout the day. So I am happy with that and the weightloss is just a wonderful side effect! You will be able to lose, too. I think we just have to stick with it a little longer than the average person. Good luck.

Default Hi Aubby, vandi68 and bevbme

Hi to all you lovely people,
I really love this site.....you folks are so supportive!!
Yes Aubby, I have a nice relaxed weekend too, though I only had Sunday off.
I've just completed week 2 of induction. My total gain (or loss?) was 4 kilos (8.8 lbs). I thik I'll stay on induction for a while longer.
Isn't it funny how the doctors scales always read higher than the the scales at home? This happens to me too and I really feel like screaming....nooo I'm not that heavy!
Have you noticed any changes with your hair? Drier, thinner, rat tail-ish? Any remedies?
Bye now and take care.
Anu

Hi Aubby,
Long time no hear...I hope thing are well with you.
I've been out of town for a few days on work for my office, so I've also not kept in touch. What progress your end?
After my initial success, I've just managed to drop half a lousy kilo...I'm hoping that atleast the downward trend doesn't reverse itself!
Bye for now and take care,
Anu
