    Congrats on being down a pound!

I'm glad the Dr. finally listened and agreed to the other thyroid test. It's probably the T4/T3 ratio? That's the one that tells how well you're converting the thyroid hormone made in your body to the usable form. I hope that gives you some answers. I do agree that too many docs seem to think that if the TSH and T4 free levels are good then it isn't thyroid.

Yes!! It is supposed to be nicer this week than last. I see in the forecast lots of sunshine, however the temps are dropping come Wed. to the low 20's. Today and tomorrow look fantastic for swimming though, so I'm sticking close to home.

    Good Luck with test. It is difficult to fight doctors. I did it when I tried to find out if I do have diabetes. If I was diagnosed early I would not have 100 extra pounds I do have now. I stopped to gain when I got meds. I took one doctor after another till I found current one. Best wishes for you.

    there are different thyroid tests and i cant remember them all but there are the 2 main ones every doc runs. then they dont think they have to run the third one because, well, if the others are normal....but many times when they run that third one they find the problem. I would frankly LOVE this to be positive...its an easy fix although it takes some time to straighten the problem out.
But really, very few docs will consent to running this one....so i'm pleased she is listening to me!

    Good going on being down a pound! I don't know why there should be such a problem running a thyroid test. I didn't think that one was that hard or expensive. Hope it comes out all right!

    Isn't it amazing we have to fight with our doctors to work on being healthy? I hope the tests are normal. I know it might help to understand your difficulties, but on the other hand it would be one more thing you would need to deal with. Good luck, friend.

ok so i didnt eat anything bad at the fair. well almost..i had a quarter of a poutine and a third of a ribbon fry. other than that i was fine..it was too darn hot to eat. as in...STINKIN hot...all summer its been cool and wet and BAM the 90s and sun hit us. bummer!
ok so today i had a doc appt. she was pleased that even with the horrid swelling i have from the heat i stayed exactly the same, which means i lost. so thats a good thing!! she figures i'm down about 15 pounds, which is right on track with where i was before the heat.
i have mega cakes to do...a birch cake for tomorrow..a 3 tier baby cake for friday, and a stencilled difficult tiny piped 3 tier for sat.
thats my life...whats yours?

I'm headed to our state fair tomorrow. I printed off their food vendors so I could find something healthy. This may be quite a stretch.... But I'll take a page from your book and go easy on the "not so good for me" things. :)

    My dear friend, what an awesome job you are doing. I got to drive by the fair gate, but we were on our way to PS and dinner at brothers so I couldn't come in. I was straining to look for you as we drove by...did you feel the tingling. Soon friend, soon we are going to get together. I'm afraid it will have to be a weekend though as my time off at work is pretty well spoken for. I cannot believe you stopped with only 1/3 poutine etc. I know how much you love that stuff. The heat probably helped, I don't know about you, but it doesn't make me feel like eating much and it was so ooooo hot last week. You keep up the good work!
Luv ya

    Well, my story is I met my sister for lunch at local high priced restaurant and gained 5 pounds of water retention due to the salt in the food. No biggie. I only do it once a year. HATE THAT SODIUM! Glad to hear you did so well at the fair!

    That is such great news Holly! I was up there most of the week and yes...it was hotter than I don't even know ...we don't normally get that much hot. I drove my sister and nephew by the fair, I so wanted to come in and try to find you, but I was taking them to "the park" for the dinner from hell....but they are back in new mexico and had a great time. and you? 15 lbs...now that is good news. Keep up the good work friend! At least you have a week at the lake coming up..or are you there now? What lake is it anyway?
