Back to the future.

This is what the theme is for this week for BLC .

I am asked to write that one thing that i would like to change if i were able to go back to my past ..
It was pretty easy to say this for me but i wish it could happen.

If i were to do so then i would like to go back to my days when i was doing my residency in a reputed hospital in Mumbai and was working in the ICU when i had my thyroid tested and found out that i had sub clinical hypothyroidism..I had gone into complete denial at that moment and couldn't even possibly believe it was of any consequences..ironically i am a Doc myself but when it comes to sickness the doctors are the worst patients..i ignored this fact and moved on to get married and a year later had a planned pregnancy.I gained tremendous weight during my pregnancy going from 75 kgs to 99 kgs.
That was the last...never crossed 99..delivered my son through LSCS and then began the consequences...utterly bad hypothyroidism...sadly i was losing myself ...cause was struggling with my personal life having a baby ,job and my husband in another city for work n coming just for a friday..thats it...i totally ignored myself...it was just before it was the last too late that i tested myself again and found i was on the extreme side...
Started picking my life from there onwards...dealing with hyperlipidaemia...and weight which was max 98 kgs..now i am 90 kgs and no more hyperlipidaemia..just one regret i still have ..i wish i had begun my treatment right from the first test i wouldn't have come so far in my weight...but i guess i can't undo that which has happened but i can be thankful that i have no other condition thanks to my age...and God almighty.

Of late i am pretty consistent in my workouts and healthy habits...i stick to SP and do everything that is asked from me...i know i won't have a super fast or a fast weight loss but i am sure even if i drop some it is going to help...collecting drop by drop.... emoticon emoticon

I started doing so many things which i never usually do...like Strength training,stretching,pushups and going beyond my capacity at times...like today i did my cardio emoticon , my full body workouts emoticon and my yoga emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
I feel so beautiful already... emoticon
Thanks for reading this long blog...it sure did help me unburden my feelings...

    Yes, I've heard that doctors are the worst patients. ;)

    It sounds like we are dealing with the opposite ends of the thyroid spectrum. After surgery, I guess I will get to know what it feels like to be hypo. (Actually, I do know, because I went very hypothyroid when I first started on carbimazole.)

    Take care of yourself!
