So, I think I'm back...again! I've been saying that a lot this past summer but something always came up w/ me. Being a person who goes from 100 to 30 in the matter of a few hours is very frustrating. I know that I can get the weight off, but having medical issues makes that focus blinded A LOT!
I went to the U last week after having that really bad flu the week before. I'm still spells of coughing because of that darn flu too, that's yet another delay to not being able to work out. The doc at the U didn't really know what to say because I'm not in the midst of a flare up. I think they forget that chances are when you're sick & you try to get into a speciality doc that you're not going to get in & you're waiting for a couple of weeks at least. With him, it took 5 mos. Anywho, I saw the pile of paperwork for my case that was sent there & it was at least 3 inches thick. He was honest in saying that he only flipped through it & that he would look more into it afterwards & he re-ran all of the tests ie: Lupus, Sjogrens etc. I was tested for all of those things last year, but apparently things change?! So again I wait! My thyroid I'm suppose to go & follow up w/ an endocronlogist & see what they have to say. I'm just going to wait until I hear from the doc @ the U first so I can take that report w/ me too. So, that's the info from here.
This summer my weight fluxuated up to 156 & I'm currently down to 151. The flu most likely helped in that department. Hopefully now that I'm feeling better I can get on the elliptical & get things moving again. I know if my thyroid is really goofed up that that also plays a role in this weight loss thing. Guess we'll see. I'd like to get 10 lbs off by Thanksgiving. At least it's a reasonable goal I think & if I work out everyday I will get there. I just have to listen to my body & take care of me in the process.
To all my girls on the chit chat board, thank you, thank you, thank you. You guys continue to inspire me. Hugs.
