Long story short (kind of)

I now weigh more than when I started tracking. I started out hyperthyroid, then took treatment, which made me hypothyroid. I could not do vigorous exercise for several months while taking a beta blocker, since my heart rate was so high from the hyperthyroidism that it would have been dangerous.
In the last month I gained 18 pounds. This has obviously been a shock to my body. Now that I'm hypothyroid, I'm off the beta blocker and taking a thyroid hormone supplement to bring me back to a normal level. I'm starting to lose weight, and once these muscle aches go away (from being hypothyroid), I'll start to exercise again.
