    Graves' Disease (hyperthyroidism) ??

    Thyroid-less and Desperate

    Two years ago, I had my thyroid taken out. Now I've just switched from Synthroid to NatureThroid. But I can't lose weight. I don't have a ton to lose - only 10 pounds - but it won't budge. Just like when I had a thyroid, I work out 6 days a week. I do weights three days a week and cardio...
