I find it interesting that when i was pregnant, i only gained 27 pounds. And that was only in the last three months. By the time I went back to work, I had lost all that i had gained plus 10 more. I looked great!

A visit to the doctor for a cold changed my life. He had a chart on the wall that showed a list of the symptoms of a hypothyroid person. I met them all. A test confirmed it and i started medication. Unfortunately i didnt lose any of the weight .... but i felt much better. Now i am tired of my jeans being tight. And having achy legs because of water retention. I want to look goodin my jeans. To see my ankles again.

Short of raising a child on my own, this may be the most difficult thing that i have ever done.
