My goal for 2013 is to lose 90 lbs. In February 2014 I will celebrate my 40th birthday, and I want to ring that milestone birthday in with a healthy new me! My family and I will celebrate with a trip to Hawaii in April of that year, so there is even more motivation for me to reach this goal!!!

KD1124, I love your daily running goal! That's awesome! Good for you and keep it up!

My goal is to experience more work life balance. Is there such a thing??? I've been really good at placing a priority on my family but last year my work suffered. This year I need to make my work time more focused and effecient so I can get done everything I set out to do. I'm getting more sleep this year so that should help. I also have an awesome nanny that helps me out so much at home. The structure is in place to make it happen.
My other goal is making time for me in my life. I'm eating better but need to put a regular exercise routine in place. I think I'm going to sign up for a class and make plans with my gym buddy so I'm committed to a regular time and place.

Haha I like the way you think. I was glad to find out that I had it because before I was like why am I like this all the time?!?! At least now I know WHY, even if I can't find relief for all the symptoms.

Hashimoto's sucks. But at least we know we're not crazy, right? Since we're both experiencing it.

Amber, sorry it took me a couple days to answer your question. Yes, I take synthroid. I think...at first I only saw my primary care and she put me on like 50 mcg and my TSH came down a little, but not a lot. She said since it was in range, she couldn't prescribe anymore. I still had all the symptoms. So after a bit, I started seeing an endrocrinologist. He wants to keep my TSH at or just below 1. He has increased my meds a couple times, I'm up to 100 mcg; I've been at this level for about a year or so now I think. I see improvement. I'm still cold a lot, still get tired (but I am iron deficient too, which probably contributes there.) SO, all that to say, it wasn't the magic potion I was hoping it would be, but I think it did help, eventually, once I got the right amount.

Though, I will say it is still SERIOUSLY hard to lose weight. My endocrinologist wants me to eat 1500 calories or less. Which sometimes (like right now) I can stick to. But that is like borderline torture! Still, I just think I have such a low metabolism with the hashimoto's that it's what I have to do. Even on 1500 calories I don't really lose that much.

As for the blood test, I think the TSH is like, really individualized. (Just my opinion, not based on medical knowledge or anything.) So I think the range might be .3 to 3 or whatever, and one person could be at 3 and be super normal. When I am at 3, I am unable to get out of bed. So...I don't know, I think just keep in good communication with your doctor, keep explaining how you feel?

Good luck!
Kim

Kim,

Do you take the synthroid? Do you feel like it has changed anything? I take it and I don't feel like it has improved my symptoms at all but the blood tests show its working fine...

I forgot to put my own goals! I outlined my goals in quite a bit of detail on my blog but here are a few highlights:

-Drink at least 8 glasses of water everyday, particularly on the weekends when it's more difficult to remember. emoticon

-Track my food EVERY.SINGLE.DAY. emoticon

-Bring my lunch to work 3-4 /week (helps my wallet & my waistline) emoticon

-Finish reading "The Spark" which is awesome so far! emoticon

-Stay more connected (and therefore accountable) to people on SP! emoticon

Can't wait to check in with you ladies and see how your goals are coming along! Have a great weekend!!

Good for you. What was the scare if you don't mind my asking? I currently have Hashimoto's Disease, aka Hypothyroidism.

2013 should be a good year!!! I am over the thyroid scare so I shouldn't have any reason NOT to lose weight! My goal is to lose 35 lbs this year. I don't know if this is too low or too high but it's a start.

I haven't posted on this board in forever, but why not!

My goal for 2013 is a little crazy, I realize. But my goal is a 1-year running streak. According to the US Running Streak Association (yes, there is one: http://runeveryday.com/) I only have to run 1 mile a day for it to count. And if I keep it up for a year, I can submit my name to the website. So, I started Christmas day and today was day 18.

I know, running everyday--not advisable, we should take rest days. But I don't run really hard every day. And one mile is not a huge run. Somedays I run more, but so far I'm sticking pretty close to the one mile thing. In the past, I've said to myself that I don't have the time or energy for a real workout, a full 3-4 miles or whatever. But I can run a mile in less than 15 minutes. I have that. I can get up 15 minutes earlier. So, I'm doing it.

We all need to hold ourselves accountable and some times the best way to do that is to put our goals out there to others so they can check in and call us on them! So please feel free to post your 2013 goals here and check back in from time to time.
