I have been so upset with myself this last few months..The more depressed I got the more I ate! and ate! I have put alot of my weight loss back on..But no more! I was diagnosed with fibromyalga and nuropathy recently..It put me in a bad funk.. I didn't walk very much lately due to pain in my legs and feet and pain specailist wanting to give my cortisone shots in my back.. No Way! Been there done that..So as soon as my sprained ankle gets better, I am going to walk, soon, I hope.. Yeah , forgot to say, while in Alaska , fell down my daughter's steps and sprained my ankle..Sure glad did not break anything, but I still did not let that stop me.. I went and did and paid for it later..Alaska was awesome, and beautiful..My grandkids are getting so big.. I got to watch their soccer games and take them to the zoo and a festival.. We went out on Prince Willam Sound and caught lots of Halibut.. Both of my grandkids fish and catch them also..But back to the real world and I HAVE TO GET BACK ON TRACK.. MY BLOOD PRESSURE IS UP AND LOTS OF PAIN TO DEAL WITH BUT I would feel better and did when my weight was lower..So I am telling myself to GET TO WORK!

Well, our trip is coming up! I can't wait to see my granchildren and my daughter and son of course. I have had a rough time lately with pain in my back and legs and feet. Or should I say all over! Our lovely state says now you have to go to a pain specialist..So I went and I had to do a drug urine test.. Never done one in my life! Felt really strange..Now understand due to my car accident and leg problems, I have been on pain meds for quite some time..I don't like taking them but you have to do what you need to do to keep going! Walking is very hard for me and I struggle with it.. If I do to much, I really hurt and if I don't I will not lose weight! So I walk and then I hurt.. Such a cycle but I have learned to live with it..This doc is not about the handing out the meds, he wants to try and find out if we can do something different, which I am for, But , I draw the line at surgery..I have done 9 surgeries in 9 years.. I am so done with that! So, MRI's coming up..My general doc diagnozed me with fibromyalgia..Not too happy with this, and my endo doc says I am borderline diabetic.. So can we say , falling apart!
Well, I have decided today that I am 53 years old and going to live and endure whatever they throw at me.. I have been yoyoing on the weight but , back to losing ..I have started the low carb diet due the endo doc, she says it will help with the blood sugar thing..It is working as the scale is going back down..
I am really looking forward to Alaska , not the plane ride 8 to 9 hours, but those cute faces will be at the end of it..My son in law has a big boat and we are going to go fishing and sight seeing..I can't wait to see my 5 and 7 year old catch a fish.. Yes they both fish..My DH is also excited about the fishing..Just hope any bears are far away..I would like to see one, but not too close..Yikes! Well back to sewing, I have been making me a new wardrobe, due to weight loss nothing fits, I hope to be finished by the end of June,, Wish me luck..

Every since my surgery, I have not felt like the same person! My energy level is low and I am always tired.. I really got discouraged over the Holidays..I put on 20 lbs..I have lost some of it already, but lots of work to go! I learned how fast it goes back on! Especially when you are eating nonstop..I know some of this is my thyroid problem ..I was starving even though I was shoveling food in..I found out some new things about my meds and how to take them, so I hope that starts working soon!I am taking a trip to Alaska this summer and I want to be fit to play with my grandchildren! I miss them so much! Well enough about why, now I have to do it!

Oh my goodness, it has been a hard few months since surgery..My body is totally wonky! I have been up and down and down again! I have found out that I am going through problems with meds and metabolism because of my missing thyroid..So that explains the gains and no losses for quite awhile..I have now finally lost 3 more lbs which puts me at 79 lbs. lost so far.. I know that is a great number but lots more to go.. I will applaud myself when I get below 240..Which hopefully my thyroid meds will level out my metabolism.. I have had to eat under 1000 calories to get this 3 lbs. gone...Even with my walking it wasn't helping but with research, I have found out about hyperthyroidism, or hypothyroidism.. So I am going to go to the doc and get a referral to endocrinologist to help with this problem.. I don't want to lose sight of my goals and I am determined to stay on track..

I need to let my feelings out about this stalemate that I am on right now..I have stayed the same for two months now..I had my surgery and I know that is defnitely part of it..My body is just wonky right now..This lack of thyroid is driving me crazy..I am really tired alot and not energy lately..And then on top of it all , I hunger crazies..I just want to eat everything in site.. I am sure it is my lack of a thyroid.. My doc has me on meds but at a really low dose right now..I will be glad when they kick in..I am still logging my food and still walking but plateau is defnitely here..I will work through this .. On the other hand, I am having a garage sale this week and I got rid of all of my fat clothes..Boy, my closet is empty..I love going to the store and actually being able to fit in some smaller sizes.. I was wearing a 28 jeans and now in a 20..I will not give up , just at a stalemate..
