We had a good visit today, and he suggested that my hormone imbalance is connected to my low thyroid in general. He also said it seems I've been living with it for a while, and will likely continue to do so.
I was offered a drug that I am not willing to take (um, I'm not a transvestitte!), so my other option? He said that losing weight might help.
I told him about my plateau, and almost fell apart in his office describing the work I've put in, and the very little loss I've had to show for it.
He told me, "Well, the dietitians wouldn't approve, but you might try cutting out carbs. It will work. Then you can maintain."
What? No! Our bodies need carbs!
Then again, I've been religiously counting everything I eat to no avail, and working out like a spider monkey on heroin. (Ok, that's a slight overstatement. Slight.) Nothing. Scale has not budged. Dr. told me it is a bit of a vicious circle. Hormone imbalance aggravated by excessive weight, weight kept on by imbalanced hormones. Stupid. And since I won't take the drug that would give me a shemale if I got pregnant on it, I'm kind of stuck.
