    On the subject of thyroid issues especially, always listen to @CSARdiver. His science is grade triple A.

    I'm quite hypothyroid, diagnosed after cancer treatment 19 years ago: Might be a cancer treatment side effect, might be genetic. I'm well controlled on 175mcg levothyroxine, TSH way at the bottom of normal range, occasionally just slightly below (but zero hypo symptoms, so my doc is fine with it). Mid-normal range, I don't feel as good.

    I lost around 50 pounds back in 2015, obese to healthy weight, and have stayed at a healthy weight since, just calorie counting and eating a balanced diet.

    It can work. Dial in the basics first, before worrying about special stuff. :flowerforyou:

    Oops, bolded should've been "hyper" - too late to edit.

    I have been told I have hypothyroidism for almost 10 years now. I take levothyroxine daily. I've lost over 90 lbs in the last year+ while adding muscle. You'll be fine, just get it controlled.
