For those of you who have followed me, you guys know that I was here almost every day, I was working out almost every day and I was doing it.
I was losing the weight and I felt good.
Slowly but surely I noticed even with my low healthy food intake, vitamins and working out I stopped losing weight and then I started gaining.
At first it was beyond my control, then I just sort of gave up, I made excuses and just threw my hands in the air and started eating with no regard.
Then I woke up and started working out again and eating better. No change.
Change things up again, nope no change, in fact I noticed I gained.
I was getting really frustrated, and then I noticed that I was spotting off and on for 2 months. I also noticed that my energy level was low.
I took way too long but I finally went to my doctor and got my blood work done,
Yep my thyroid is out of sync again.
Which explained everything and I started increasing my exercise and changing my diet after I saw my doctor.
So here I am, because sparkpeople has always helped me track my exercise and eating. Plus my friends I have made here have always been supporitive.
I have actually lost 7 pounds since I have seen my doctor, itís a combination of my increased medication, exercising every day and eating better.
For a while it was really easy to ignore what my body was telling me, and it got way too easy to not come here and keep myself on track. I felt ashamed and just sad, so it was really easy to ignore everything.
Last time I was on sparkpeople I weighed 172 and I weight 175 now, so I am not too far away.
I have two weddings to stand up this year too! My sisters and my sister in law are getting married.
140 is the goal but I will take the 150 too.
I missed you guys, I may leave from time to time on spark but I canít help but come back to my home here.
