Oddlass tries again!!

This is yet another return here! BUT his one has a difference.

I finally decided to follow doctors recommendations and have the pesky Thyroid irradiated.

So back in June 2013 I swallowed the magic pill and it is is doing it's thing. I have left it to adjust its little self for a while and am getting more stable on medication to replace it. SO! now I SHOULD be able to lose weight.

Being an awkward soul, my appetite has gone up now (not down as you would expect!)

When I was on here some time ago, I used to do quite a lot of walking, then reported having bad back and leg pain after only walking short distances. This has , sadly, turned out to be quite a lot of damaged spinal discs and one trapping a nerve, in a rather tricky place to operate to relive. Just a part of getting some good use out of the old body over the years!
I saw a physio who told me to learn to recognize the different signs, that let you know what is happening. She told me that walking would not help my condition, and should never push it if I was in any pain. But losing weight, swimming and riding a bike would help. ... I was terrified of water, had no sense of balance and a thyroid that had added to the problem of weight control!!

NOW I am looking for a cheap exersize bike, and have the Thyroid on the run, so should be able to lose weight ...... still not getting in the pool though !!

Well done on the 3 lb loss. Glad to see you back. I'm not on SP as much as I used to be but I still pop up now and again on the Yorkshire and Disney teams.

Hi Oddlass! Another person with thyroid issues here - it does take a while to settle down but you will get there. I was doing really well until I had a nerve problem in my leg and couldn't walk very far. My weight just crept back up again.... The nerve problem was a knock on effect of the overactive thyroid I had had, which goes to show how all-pervasive the effects of the darn gland are.

Be gentle with yourself, you will get there in the end :)

Hi,
It seems ages since we communicated and I'm so sorry but I've forgotten your name, oddlass sounds so impersonal. Anyway, I'm writing to congratulate you on soon to be coming a granny. I hope you will get lots of enjoyment out of him/her.
Luv Thelma emoticon emoticon

Hi Oddlass! How are you doing? Sorry i've hardly checked in these last months. I seem to do better when I keep a bit of distance from checking and measuring.
Guess what?? My BMI is under 30!!! Used to be 35. That means I'm no longer a beast (obese) according to the BMI thing.
Looks like you're doing fab still! Well done!!!

Hi Oddlass! How are you getting on with your injured hand? I hope you're managing to do at least some of things you enjoy.

I've got a light frame and I'm 5'10" so it's only when I'm around BMI 22 that I look in proportion. It's also where the doc thinks I should be (diabetes runs in the family). Not that I'm complaining about having long legs!
