    Thanks for the comment on my blog today! I love the way I feel when I keep my carbs on the low side. But, I found out from different studies that keeping it as low as I was interfered with my thyroid converting the T3 (Levothyroxin) I take into the T4 I need. Apparently the body needs 120g of carbs a day in order for the thyroid to function properly. I am thinking about trying to fluctuate the carb count with one day being higher and one day being lower. Right now I vary it between around 60g up to around 120-140g. I know the higher the carb count goes, the more I tend to be hungry even if I just ate. I try to have a low carb, higher fat, higher protein shake in the morning before I workout then eat something with carbs right after. Then the carbs won't interfere with my workout since I read its better to either keep your carbs low or not eat until after your workout in order to burn more fat. While I am not losing any weight right now, I do believe I am losing fat since I can see I am firming up.
    I did very well for about 6 months on a very low carb plan and then it just stopped. I lost about 50lbs up to that point. I was able to keep that weight off even though it didn't go down any further for over a year. Then, last September, I started gaining even though I was still eating the same. From September until around February this year my weight kept going up and I ended up gaining 35lbs before it stopped going up. I've lost 6 of those pounds since then with my weight still fluctuating back and forth those 6 lbs.
    It would be very discouraging if all I looked at was the weight. It would have been enough when I was younger for me to get to the point of just quitting but I don't give up on myself any more. I like the way I feel when I workout and especially the difference in the way I feel since I started kettlebell. If nothing else, I am doing it for me and my health even if I never lose another pound. If I can firm up and slim down without ever losing a pound, I am still winning.

    Hi! CX is short for CXWORX. It is a 30 minute class focusing on the core. We use tubes and hand weights or a plate. It is a great class and I am glad it is only 30 minutes.

    Hi M. Thanks for commenting on my page. I agree the doctor is wrong about the gallbladder. Not only do I believe I didn't lose the weight too quickly, I seldom eat fatty foods. I didn't eat much of that even before I joined SP. When I was told to change my diet, I asked "To what?" I eat healthier now than ever. He just gave me that puzzled look doctors give when they don't know what else to say. Heehee................. Thanks again.
