My thyroid gland was removed twenty years ago due to Thyroid Cancer. I have been overweight all my life. But, at Thanksgiving this year, my brother calculated my BMR for me and I began losing four to five pounds a month. In February, my doctor prescribed two new meds: Alesse to control my irregular menstrual cycle and iron for anemia. Since March, my weight loss has stalled, even though I am still counting calories and burning five hundred calories five days a week at the gym. Could the cause of the stall be either of the new meds?
