Just Keep Moving Forward

Tuesday, December 03, 2013

So close and yet it seems like I'm so far away because right now it's a dance of weight loss and then weight reappearance. On the other hand, I have lost an inch in the same time period, a half inch from my hips and a half inch from my neck(!). Inches trump the scale in my book because inches aren't going to fluctuate.

About a month ago my thyroid medicine was adjusted lower and I have to wait another month to check my level. I feel better on the lower dosage, less like I'm veering towards hyper-thyroidism symptoms, so that's a good thing.

I've also started walking more, which means I'm burning more, so maybe it's a matter of adjusting my caloric intake (I average the daily calories over a week).

I know that as long as I do what it is I need to do, I will get there. One foot in front of the other as I figure it out.

    Yay to walking more and adjusting down those thyroid meds!! A good step forward and a great NSV.

I have been doing the same dance -- half a pound down, three-quarters of a pound up, etc.... until two days ago when I suddenly felt different, lighter, leaner, and weighed myself to find that I was down by 1.5 lbs. Eventually the weight does come off!
