The thyroid is a butterfly shaped master gland located in the front of the neck that controls a bunch of fun biological functions, but especially the metabolism. Mine is currently something more like a butterfly-shaped lump of non-functioning scar tissue thanks to Hashimoto's Hypothyroidism. Now I will pop a little pill every morning for the rest of my life to not die. Yay! When my immune system decided to sack my thyroid like Attila the Hun, I put on twenty-five pounds. This is not uncommon. Now I am trying to get it back off again. Fun times!

Member Since: 1/7/2010

Fitness Minutes: 5,634

My Goals:
I would like to get down to 130 pounds by April 1, 2011. I will reevaluate whether I should aim for a bit lower (perhaps 125) or work to maintain at that time. My goal is to lose on average a pound a week (I had my goal date as March 1 a while ago. This was because I had an epic failure to do math!)

Fitness goals: Complete either a full or half marathon in January 2011 for Team in Training. Waiting to see whether or not training for a full 26.2 would be safe (if my coaches say it probably isn't I'll train for a half).

Life Goals:

Pass New Jersey and New York bars. I sat New Jersey in July but for various reasons, I don't feel that great about it. However, there is no harm if I didn't pass, so I am studying hard to prepare for February!

My Program:
1. Track my calories each day on Spark People

2. Run three days a week

3. Do two full body weight workouts a week (split into two upper body days and two lower body days)

4. Yoga whenever can fit it in.

Personal Information:
Age: 30
Gender: Female
Married: To Hubby, 1 year.
Location: New Jersey
Food: We keep kosher and I count my calories.
Pets: I had the most lovely dream that I finally had a cat again last night. :(
Job: My job is to not go mad while I look for a job.

Other Information:

Harold Crick: "Who in their right mind in a choice between pancakes and living chooses pancakes?"

Dr. Hilbert: "Harold, if you pause to think, you'd realize that that answer is inextricably contingent upon the type of life being led... and, of course, the quality of the pancakes."

    HI! I just wanted to check in and see how you're doing today. The other day wasn't a good day for you, and I'm hoping that today is better! We're all in this together!

    Thanks for the note! I agree that your topic would be most understood by women, but I have a similar situation in that my mother in law and sister and law live with me and are basically dead-beats. It takes a lot of strength to say "NO" when you want to help people and your first reaction is "YES" to helping!

    It is good that he agrees, he will likely understand and back you up when you tell her 'no'.
    Thanks for the little note!
