I'm eating at what Scooby says is my maintenance now (been working up to this point since July.) my Fitbit says my tdee is closer to 2800 or 2900 Sad I really don't think I can handle continuing to gain. I feel physically and mentally miserable. I'm only averaging 2 workouts a week right now, but pretty active in general bc of how busy we are . (Lots of walking.) could it be possible that due to my hypothyroidism my TDeE is lower than average? Could I have surpassed it and that's why I'm blowing up so much? I don't want to give up, but in not sure I can handle gaining more weight.

Honey I am here with you! I was just about to post the same thing and had a really bad hashi's "flare up" just recently by experimenting with my meds. I stay off the scale for the most part but have just recently calculated a 20 pound gain since starting last year. So I know EXACTLY how you feel. I weigh more then my husband, who LOL was a football player in high school (he's 260lbs and 6 foot 4 inches!) and it's hard to wrap my brain around it. Keep on keeping on-- I promise you can make it through this. It's going to be a long road for me and I'm visualizing my body healthy rather then small.

I kicked up the cardio (just walking and moving more) and am doing kettlebell workouts for the next 6 weeks because everything else is just too much right now. Once I'm in a better place with my meds and not dealing with very extended sinus issues (headaches and vertigo!) I'll add in heavy lifting again but it might not be compound stuff with a barbell though I really *want* to. I also am temping to make SURE my low metabolism isn't tanking and eating lots of salt and carbs. Guess what salt does? Shows up as water weight on the scale! I'm focusing on that and eat at a 15% cut just as Anitra recommends.

Cheering you on over here! rock on
