It's been a slow, sneaky thing that has finally caught me by surprise. I have gained back everything that I lost. I had a health scare a few months ago, I had a breast cyst that turned out to be benign and just fluid, but in the process of testing and procedures and a LOT of STRESS, my thyroid got thrown out of kilter as well. Unfortunately, my thyroid can't be treated by any medication right now because it goes from high to low and back again. This has added to my weight issues.
However, between the doctor's visits and the holidays and a major change at work, I just let myself go. I think I was vaguely aware of what I was doing, like going back to eating sugar (my addiction) and letting exercise go by the wayside. I woke up (literally and figuratively) one day this week and it all came to me.
I refuse to let this go on any longer. I am my own master.
I am cleaning out the cupboards and planning healthier meals again. Spring is coming and I will have more time to walk and run outside, which are my favorite things to do. While I love my treadmill, there is nothing like hearing the sounds of birds and outside noises!
I don't consider this a failure - it is just a wrong turn on my road of life.
I'm glad I have SparkPeople to keep me honest and for all of the support!
