May PAC Week 4 - Short and Bittersweet

Saturday, June 02, 2012

Fitness Minutes and Calories burned were both hits this week. I exceeded both of my goals. Weight loss was a miss, I gained 5 lbs. I'm going to try and get a doctors appointment sometime in the next couple of weeks because there is obviously something happening with my body.

After a talk with my dear friend MJ-SHE-BEAST and my MIL who is a nurse, I fear something is wrong with my thyroid. I have SEVERAL common hypothyroid symptoms like depression, fatigue, insomnia, allergies, weight gain/trouble losing weight, etc. Part of me is extremely upset because I know that if there is something wrong with my thyroid, a long difficult road awaits me. The other part of me is relieved that I might have an explanation for why I work soo hard without success to lose weight!

You probably won't see me much over the next week or so because I just can't be here. It is so hard emotionally to be here. I'm not giving up, I promise. I'm just worn down and tired and overwhelmed.

    I know exactly where you're coming from. My issue didn't end up being because of my thyroid, but I know what it's like to do everything right and then gain an attrocious amount of weight for no good reason! It's terrible. I hope your doctor can find whatever is causing you the trouble, TaMara, whether it's your thyroid or something else. There are a LOT of reasons your body can mess up this way, and so many doctors, unfortunately, tend to ignore what we say half the time, thinking we just don't keep good records or are lying about what we eat or how we exercise.
