FINALLY 3 lbs gone!

Wednesday, October 21, 2009

Oh my goodness, it has been a hard few months since surgery..My body is totally wonky! I have been up and down and down again! I have found out that I am going through problems with meds and metabolism because of my missing thyroid..So that explains the gains and no losses for quite awhile..I have now finally lost 3 more lbs which puts me at 79 lbs. lost so far.. I know that is a great number but lots more to go.. I will applaud myself when I get below 240..Which hopefully my thyroid meds will level out my metabolism.. I have had to eat under 1000 calories to get this 3 lbs. gone...Even with my walking it wasn't helping but with research, I have found out about hyperthyroidism, or hypothyroidism.. So I am going to go to the doc and get a referral to endocrinologist to help with this problem.. I don't want to lose sight of my goals and I am determined to stay on track..

    Good for you! Baby steps, baby steps. I've heard it can take a year to fully recuperate from surgery. Never give up and never give in! emoticon

    You have to work so hard to take off the weight, but it's reinforcing you won't gain it back. Keep going girl you can do it!

    Good for you - hope the momentum keeps going for you. For me, every pound lost is a big deal because they are so hard to come by. Finally saw my marker move on my scale this morning. I'm pumped now!!! Good luck with your continued recovery. emoticon

    Congratulations on the 3 pounds and also the 79 pounds. Your attitude is great and it seems you have found the problem and have it taken care of. With what you wrote I don't think you will lose sight of your goals and one day we see a blog of you going under 240. Keep on keeping on.
