I had the right side of my thyroid gland removed two years ago because of a malignant tumor. I am doing well with my dosage of thyroid medicine. I would like to lose five or 10 pounds and have tried for quite some time with no success. I work out every day and eat as nutritiously as possible, but I cannot lose weight. I either just stay where I am or gain a few pounds. How can this be happening? Since the thyroid controls metabolism, could that be my problem? What can I do?—R.R. An underactive thyroid gland can create a weight problem, but I would hesitate to blame that in your case. Even with half a gland removed, your thyroid dosage should be keeping your metabolism on track. And a blood test will tell that easily. I assume you are having that done. Your question about weight gain in the face of sensible diet and purposeful exercise is a common one, even among those without any thyroid- gland problem. There are some people who simply are unable to lose weight. Often we are just at a loss to explain why the arithmetic of calorie intake and calorie expenditure fails us. Doctor Donohue NEWS AMERICA I'm interested in how you are working out, for how long and how often. It's tempting to suggest the obvious, that if you pick up the pace and frequency a bit you would lose those five or 10 pounds. I'd also be interested to know your present weight, height, and build. Usually, the closer we are to normal weight, the tougher weight loss becomes. Your program should be one of aerobics, that is, one utilizing large muscles (arms or legs) continuously in sessions of a least 15 or 20 minutes each. And that exercise should be at an intensity to speed your heart to at least 120 beats per minute. That's pretty minimum target rate. But I am basing this suggestion on the assumption you have a healthy heart and your doctor's permission for the program. If so, see if this doesn't start getting you down to where you want to be. Dear Dr. Donohue: I am having a difference of opinion with my husband. He says that when walking, which we both do for exercise, your foot should come down on the ground with the heel first, like you do in jogging. I say come down on the ball of your foot. Who's right? — J.A. Your husband is right. For correct jogging or running, you allow the heel to strike the surface, then rotate to the outer portion of the foot, then transfer weight to the ball of the foot, then push off with the big toe. Of course, all that happens so quickly you don't realize it, but that's what should be happening with each stride, so that you take fullest advantage of the dynamics of the foot and leg muscles. Dear Dr. Donohue: I do a fair amount of lifting. Recently, I got some new weights with fancy lifting equipment. I have begun lifting heavier iron, but stopped because I got headaches. The ache lasts about an hour. What's wrong? What could cause lifting headaches? — J.S.S. It's an exertional headache, and there are different causes. You are wise to stop or back off on the amount of weight lifted. If the headaches continue, be examined. Sometimes lifting weight can produce a stress that brings a release of blood-vessel-dilating substance. Frequently, there is pain referred from too-tight neck and shoulder muscles. If you're clear for resumption of lifting, start with modest weights and build slowly. Often an aspirin relieves the minor headache from unwise lifting, but you have to heed the warning. For W.J.: In Bell's palsy, the affected eye (the one with the muscle paralysis) should be patched at night to protect it from foreign body irritation and infection. I know how difficult patching can be in the daytime. If that's your problem, then there's no reason you cannot wear suitable eyeglasses to protect the eye.

By The Associated Press Blind dates are cheaper than taking out a personal ad, safer than chance encounters at a singles bar— and they don't have to be dating disasters. There are ground rules for minimizing blind-date blues, according to an article in the January issue of Cosmopolitan, and even the worst blind date lasts only a few hours. The first thing is to consider the source. If you like the person making the introduction, chances are you will like that person's friends. If you have doubts about the matchmaker, ask a few pertinent questions — almost everyone has at least one wild card among his acquaintances. The initial phone conversation will provide clues as to whether this is a friendship you want to pursue. The man who suggests sipping wine in his hot tub is obviously a dubious choice. If the man seems like a good bet, take the next step. Since he made the first call, you suggest a meeting. Before you meet, get as much information as you can from your source — if possible,'a photograph. Practice a smile of greeting — you'll need it whether he's a doll or a dog. A blind date should 1 be set up so either party can escape. Lunch is the best setting because it will be brief and you really do have to get back to work. Saturday and Sunday afternoons also are good for blind dates. You can walk through a park or drop into an art gallery. Moving about keeps the conversation going. Shared activity helps you get to know each other and fills the gap if your interaction fizzles. Taking a blind date to a party can be risky. It may be hard to introduce a man you hardly know to other guests. He may not be presentable. Or he may be terrific and you will have to introduce him to other women before he's had a chance to know you. Don't invite him to your place for drinks or dinner — it's too intimate for a date with a virtual stranger. If you find yourself stuck for a whole evening with someone you dislike, you can either gracefully endure it or make up a respectably plausible excuse to get away. He will know it's an excuse, but that's better than getting cranky or hostile. If you like him but he's trying to slide away—let him go. Don't forget the third party in your date — the person who introduced you. If you enjoyed the date, a call telling her you had a good time is in order. Details aren't necessary. If it didn't work, just say he was nice but the chemistry wasn't there. Planning a trip?
