Weight Loss

Lose weight- the long struggle

Lose weight(The following is a dramatization.)

Lose Weight is a common theme in weight loss programs. Melanie had tried three different weight loss programs already. She was five foot four, and her weight had gone up to 180 pounds before she decided to make a serious effort to lose weight. The first thing she did was just exercise and count calories, in the hopes that if she burned more calories than she was consuming, sooner or later the laws of physics would kick in. What happened was that it gradually became harder for her to do everything she did over the course of a normal day, let alone go through with an exercise program. The little bit of weight she did lose was more muscle than fat.

Then she tried the grapefruit diet, plus exercise. Once again she found herself feeling tired. She lost about six pounds, along with the desire to ever look at another grapefruit again.

Then she tried the Atkins diet, plus exercise. This helped her lose twelve pounds over the course of six months — which was something, but not even close to what she was hoping for. At this point she decided to see a doctor.

Pinpointing the medical problem

A blood test discovered that Melanie was suffering from a mild case of hypothyroidism. That is, her thyroid gland was failing to produce enough hormone to allow her metabolism to properly convert food into energy.This was a great relief to her, as it meant that the obesity she had struggled with for so long was not her fault and never had been. So she began a hormone replacement treatment designed to relieve this.

Armed with this knowledge, she consulted experts in the Lees Summit area who were able to develop a weight loss program customized to her condition, metabolism and genetic history. With this, she was finally able to lose weight enough to bring herself down within a healthier weight range.
