Puffy face?

Tuesday, May 15, 2012

My long term goal was to lose the weight before my friend's wedding. I've lost 10 pounds since August, not the 32 I actually wanted to lose. The wedding is in less than two weeks, so yeah. Not happening. I'm super proud about those ten pounds though!

The part I am upset about is that despite losing an ok amount of weight and going down almost a jeans size, I have gained weight in my face. I look like I'm wearing special effects makeup to give me a second chin and cheeks. I genuinely just don't get it. It's gotten worse since my surgery. I'm wondering if it's my thyroid yet again, but I've had that tested recently, complete with ultrasound, (because my whole neck/face is puffy, they thought I had a goiter) but there's nothing there, just extra fat. I'm starting to worry that maybe it's a different hormone imbalance, but I can't find any credible/useful stuff online about that stuff. I might call my doctor tomorrow, but odds of getting in for an appointment aren't great. :/

I wish I had some answers. Arrrrrgh.
