    • Not to confuse the issue (although I guess by saying that you are prepared for the probability that I will indeed do just that) but...I have currently been doing research on CoQ10 and a deficiency has many of the same symptoms (my DH is taking Statins and I cannot get him to stop because he thinks his world famous cardiologist knows more than his wife. and they create an issue with CoQ10).

      Anyway, if it turns out the iodine isn't it, maybe the CoQ10 would help. (there are food sources too). Also, I believe that blood tests can be done for deficiencies, and while the tests may be pricey, certainly it would be worth gaining life and not having to experiment with expensive supplements that might not be necessary?

      • Dearest Gay Panda...I am in your boat. I have stalled on the weight loss...have gained & lost the same 3 pounds over the last month & a half. I can't figure out what's going on & its making me nuts! There's a reason & I must find that reason so I can fix it! I just recently had a complete thyroid panel done & doc says even tho my numbers are in the "ranges" I can still have "functional thyroid disorder". Which he thinks I do. I've been taking 2 supplements to help with that, but can't see that they've helped all that much...except I do feel better. But I attribute that to more of the primal diet than any supplements. He wanted to do another test...to test my adrenals. I am doing that today here at home...there is a kit with everything you need to do your spit & pee tests & then you send it back in & they send the results to the doc. The darn test cost me $220 but if it shows my adrenals have blown up or my cortisol levels or DHEA levels are bad then at least we can take the steps necessary to fix it. There is no reason I shouldn't be losing like I was, that I can think of. *sigh* I just wish I could be "normal" & like others that say the fat has just melted off of them in a rather short period of time. I will evidently never be one of "those" people.

        have a wonderful day!!!

        • Be a PatientPanda. Give it at least three weeks(the magic rule of thumb) before you start analyzing. You'll have LadyFriend (or pounds- your choice) levitating across the room before you know it.

            Is there room for me??? I've only lost 3 lbs since May 2011!

            • I'm afraid I have no words of wisdom to offer since my body has refused to go below a certain point in weight for approximately the last 30 years, since I was a growing (read: alarmingly quickly expanding) teen. That lowest point was reached after some strenuous Atkins-ing just before a family wedding. Despite still being about 10 kg above my ideal, I revelled in it. For one day only. <sigh>

              So just lots of sympathy and empathy and any other -pathy I can offer, Panda. I hope you find an answer soon.

                        Thanks, Sheldon.
                        Did she get you test for psychopathy and endopathy as well?

                          But I'm sooo awesome they just couldn't stay away and have slowly returned to bask in my glory. I believe I'm only missing 3 at this point.

                          • Oh hhqdnmfh5,

                            What a coincidence! I was just thinking about you last night. Everyone, hhqdnmfh5 is one of those annoying people who DOES have the luxury of pounds 'just melting away'. And this is why I am hitting the Death Triangle on you, hhqdnmfh5, because I am jealous as hell. I've been tolerant of my trolls lately, but you're getting under my skin. You cheat and cheat and cheat on primal and still made your goal in a lousy five months. I don't know how you do it. I work and work and work on primal but my body is just not interested in losing. I may have to accept this size as the best my body can do, but it's hard when people like you, hhqdnmfh5, come to my journal and flaunt their easy success in front of me.

                            And so, since I am thoroughly annoyed to have found you here this morning, I am shutting off my online biochemistry journals and MDA for the next few hours to write instead, since I have a book to edit for April and a short story that needs flap meat inserted in it somewhere, and I am better at writing than I am at losing weight. I also need to do laundry, and I think that I just might have to call Lady Friend and ask if she felt a zap at work today. If she says yes, then my magical skills are improving.

                            Get your average-sized ass out of my journal, hhqd-whateverthehellyournameis,

                            • hhhmmm I had a visit from hhqd-whateverthehellyournameis & I wasn't sure whether he/she was a troll or not. Now I'm sure he/she is & will hit the magic triangle myself in my journal! I was gonna just ignore it but I haven't had the opportunity to try out the magic triangle yet!

                              Have a wonderful day writing GP!!

                                Even if she says "no" your magical powers of technomancy seem to be improving, hhqdnmfh5 seems to have been banished to the nether regions of cyber-hades.
