Taking responsibility.

I would say, that these last few years of trying to loose weight, and get fit, have been an exercise in self indulgent whining, where nothing is my fault really……..

Last summer I had some sort of epiphany. Star Wars was being watched again. Yoda quote…."Do, or do not do, there is no try." I needed to find out for myself, once and for all, if my very stubborn hypothyroid body could actually loose weight. For Real. If the answer was "NO" then I could move on to good health in ...

Last summer I had some sort of epiphany. Star Wars was being watched again. Yoda quote…."Do, or do not do, there is no try." I needed to find out for myself, once and for all, if my very stubborn hypothyroid body could actually loose weight. For Real. If the answer was "NO" then I could move on to good health in other ways, knowing I had obtained an honest answer for myself.

With the encouragement of DD, I joined Weight Watchers. That "diet" is a very healthy fit for me all the way round. 9 months, 14 pounds gone. I have even managed to challenge my fear of intense (for me) exercise!

However. The last 4 of those months have been on a stubborn plateau, and I decided to stop dieting to loose, and have put myself on maintenance. I am going to see if my body will reset, and I will have another go at weight loss this summer or fall.

Its scary to start eating more, and have the mind set to stay at the same weight. Also scary to not be going to a WW meeting every week. I thought that Spark would be a good place to stay focused., and thats why I am here. :o)

Oh you're welcome. I feel your frustration! There were days (still are but much less so) where you feel like throttling the docs and saying, "Will you listen to me!" I had a male Dr. for years. When we moved I found a wonderful female Dr. What was the difference in the two??? She listens . . . he didn't!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I feel fortunate.

Have a great Tuesday my dear.
