Week 6, Hypothyroid and Duffy

Friday, April 11, 2008

Week 6. That is so awesome!! I've lost almost 16 lbs and haven't slowed down yet. I really owe Sparkpeople and all you members for my motivation. I really don't think I could have gotten this far without you guys.

On another note, I had some blood work done last week. I saw my Dr. yesterday and it turns out I have hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid). So I got put on some medication and have to go back every 4-6 weeks to get my levels checked and the medications tweaked until my b/w comes back normal. This is so very new and weird to me. I have to take a pill for the rest of my life. Like I said, it's just so weird to me. I wonder if I'll lose weight even quicker now. I'm losing at a good pace, which is also weird considering I have a thyroid problem. Oh, well.

The final thing is that new song "Mercy" by Duffy is awesome! It's stuck in my head right now. If you haven't heard it you should definitely check it out!

    Congrats on your great loss so far! I imagine as your thyroid function becomes normalized you will indeed see even better losses. But that doesn't mean you can stop what you are doing now that is working so well for you!!! LOL!
