I had it, I was this close....it was all working.
First, we retired, and DH had cancer #'s 2 and 3. One just before and one just after. Bummer. He had some minor complications and the nurse in me had to kick in. Stress. He was in bed for longer than we thought but was finally up and about. But our house did not sell. More stress. For almost a year and a half we were paying on two houses, and leaving the empty one behind three hours away where anything could happen.
Then, I discovered I was hypothyroid, was put on medicine and I got some energy back, lost some weight. DD and I went to the Biggest Loser Resort. I found out I could exercise like a demon and lose more. I was at my lowest for a long time! The house sold, DH was cruising. Life was good, I was transformed.
Brick wall. The doctor said my dose was too high (I am now on even more), dropped it and I felt like a balloon deflating and I flat out went to bed. I joined a team on this challenge who were not very understanding of how I felt. Nuf said on that topic.
I changed doctors, we have been adjusting the meds and I have some energy back but the weight is coming off so very slowly. And if I slip off that wagon and put on a few, they become like cement.
BUT, I won't quit. I keep coming back, tracking, eating well, putting one foot in front of the other and some day, I'll get that transformation moment back.
Because a body in motion stays in motion, per the Celebrex commercial, I will keep moving.
Thanks for listening.
