I hate my thyroid. I hate my meds. I even stopped taking them. And, then I scheduled an appointment with an endocrinologist, and now I wait to be seen. I looked up the effects of not taking your meds, and it isn't too good. So, I restarted taking them again. I gave up not eating well...because truth is...I couldn't see a result on the scale. My body fights against me nonstop. But then I thought I really don't wanna start over. The people that don't start over have a reason, even when they get depressed or upset, they don't completely quit. So...I didn't completely quit. I ate my pizza for dinner, and still went to my water aerobics. And, you know what? The pizza didn't taste good. Something is happening to me. My house is full of good foods, so it is almost impossible to give up completely. The water aerobics class is so short, I figure why not go and get out of the house. My mind is fighting with me. One day it says to hell with it all...and the next it says you are too strong to give up. You aren't a quitter.

I didn't gain weight until I started taking the meds for my thyroid. I think I want to boycott the damn meds. I get tired of taking a pill everyday. I get tired of not being able to lose this weight. Today is day 3 that I have willingly decided NOT to take the stupid meds. I am so angry that I was NOT overweight, I did NOT feel bad, I did NOT know anything was wrong with me and 8 years ago I am told I have a horribly low thyroid level. I start taking meds and here I am 75 pounds heavier!!!! It makes me so angry. My biggest fear is that some dumb hormonal goiter is going to grow out of my neck or something. :(

How does everyone feel about the hungry girl recipes? I have tried a few out on my kids this week, and they love them. I have a buffalo chicken mac n cheese in the oven right now, and my house smells amazing!
How about the skinny cow products? I haven't tried the ice cream yet, but I have tried the candies. Gotta say, I could probably eat the entire box if I wasn't thinking properly. Had a chocolate caramel snack of theirs today. To die for. Good thing was there are three in a pack. So I didn't just eat one, and feel a craving for another. By the time I was done with the third one, I was ok and didn't want another.

Today I had the day off after several very full days at work. With the impending fathers day weekend at the restaurant, I know I will be exhausted come monday. This morning, I hit up the water aerobics again, and today, not only was I called a whipper snapper, but a firecracker as well :) Those ladies love me already! Then Christian and I decided to hit up the zoo. We live so close to one of the best zoos ever! I was a little timid about it first since it rained so hard last night. I asked him if he wanted to bring the umbrellas, and he said, "nah mom, lets rough neck it." I don't know what that actually means, but I am glad we didn't bring them, cuz it was sunny and warm all day long!!
When we first got to the zoo, I went into the information building and asked if there was some sort of trivia questions or scavenger hunt or something for us to do while we were there. AND...she went into the computer and printed up two different versions. One for the main zoo, and one for the rain forest. In four hours, we finished half of the main zoo questionaire. My son said it was the best time he ever had at the zoo with me. We walked. We learned. We talked. It was probably my favorite time too :) THEN he said, next week, when you have a day off, can we come back and finish this question thing. My heart leapt. OFCOURSE!
I cannot explain how good it felt to be out, to be active and enjoying myself with one of my favorite people.
Christian chose this picture to put up because he was in the middle of saying cheese, and loved how his mouth was funny shaped :)
