    Well that was my intention then out of the blue I've started losing weight. I've taken tramadol for severe pain and reduced my stomach grumbling 2000mg metformin for 1000mg. I think metformin has just kicked in. I checked the scales this morning and I'm still losing, water retention seems not so bad too. For once meds are actually making a physical difference.
    Just need to rid myself of breathing restriction in walking and I'll be able to walk more.

    It didn't stop me conceiving twice. My specialist kept a tight close eye on thyroid levels whilst pregnant as it can stunt mental development in the foetus.

    Sorry, can't offer advice. I know very little about insulin pumps.
    How much weight are you trying to lose?
    Chalup gave some good advice.
    Best of luck, but do talk to doctor if you are concerned about thyroid.

    Good to have some positive news.
    Maybe things are going to improve. Hope so.
