I have a problem with my weight. Since getting the pacemaker 4 years ago I have put on 40 pounds. I am 59 years old and work as a L&D nurse. I also have hypothyroidism. I watch what I eat and try to work out at least 3 days a week. I drink mostly water and do not eat fatty foods. I am on Diovan, Zebata and Synthroid. It is as if my body refuses to let go of the extra weight. I hate the way clothes look on me. And forget looking in the mirror. All the doctors tell me I should lose weight and I wish I could. I barely eat anything. I contacted a diet person and she said "With menopause, thyroid,and the medications you take, as well as the pacemaker set at 60, you will be hitting yourself up against a brick wall." She had no suggestions for me. Is there anyone else who has run into this problem?
