It's been more than two months since I've been here. I gave up. I worked hard all January, every day working out and eating what I was supposed to and not only did I not lose weight (I gained 3 oz), my measurements did not change at all! I was thoroughly disgusted and decided I was done trying to lose weight.
So, for the month of February, I ate whatever I wanted, whenever I felt like it and did not exercise. The result was unexpected - I lost three pounds! I know it sounds very strange and some would think impossible. But it proves what I suspected all along. My weight is more dependent on my emotional state than what I eat. Stress makes me gain weight.
I've also looked into Hypothyroidism, even though the tests came out negative. More often than not they will show a false negative. So, again, I'm taking my treatment into my own hands and decided to try iodine therapy. I don't want to go on synthetic hormones if I can avoid them. It's only been a week so far so I don't even expect there to be any change.
As of today, April 2, 2012, I have started an intensive dietary detox program. I didn't make this up myself so I have a book to guide me. I'm hoping this will kickstart everything; after giving my body a much needed rest from garbage food and being lazy.
My sister took me shopping yesterday and helped me pick out a Zumba 2 program for the Wii. I've never done Zumba but was told it's fun. I don't know about that, but I can see how I will get a good workout, once I figure out how my feet are supposed to move! lol Today's session lasted about 15 minutes - I don't want to overdo it and get discouraged and I don't want to make myself sick since I'm also detoxifying at the same time I'm starting this.
