I'm Aylamay, and I just started on this site. I have been reading the book, "The Spark" off and on for the past couple months and only now have I had an event trigger me to come online and spark me to make a change: Last Wednesday when I went to the Doctor, her scale diagnosed me as weighing 192 pounds, just 7 pounds shy of my lifetime high! I had been slowly gaining for the last few months. I may have a partial explanation: the Doctor said my thyroid levels were off, and she increased my dose of synthetic thyroid. The low thyroid accounts for part of the weight gain. The doctor also said that switching from cigarettes to nicotine lozenges may also account for some of the gain. I'm not going to use these built-in excuses: in fact, I have already started to change my diet and began walking for exercise again yesterday.
It's nice to be a member of your team. I look forward to being here with all you.
