Once again, I find a need to start over. Wait. That's not right, I shouldn't feel like a failure every time I don't lose any weight trying something new. Saying I'm starting over just makes me feel bad so I will now choose a difference tactic. I'm going to move on. Apparently, what I was doing was too little/much so I need to try something different. I get it. Always altering, changing, growing. learning. At some point, something will work. So this is a continuation, not a do-over. lol

I finally decided to see my doctor and this time the results came back positive for Hypothyroidism and I am now on Synthroid. It's been a month and no change yet, that I have noticed. It's hard to tell; it's spring and I always get more energetic in the spring. lol

Since I am starting a new, full-time job on Monday, I am going to spend part of the weekend preparing items to take for my meals. There is a lunch room there so there should be few limits on what I take. It's just a matter of taking the time to prepare, which is my biggest problem these days. But, I informed my husband that if I took a full-time job, he will have to pitch in more around the house and I'm going to get him helping me in the kitchen. Maybe if he took more interest, we would both eat better and who knows, he might just have some Masterchef in him! lol

I'd also like to say thank you to those who have been supportive, even though I've been neglectful. I appreciate your kindness and will try to reciprocate.

    Was wondering where you'd gone! Hopefully they will find something that will help. I am on Eltroxin and it took two months (and an upped dosage) to get it right. Now I'm back to full energy again :)

    Hopefully you will be back on the ball, or so to speak, soon!

    You are continuing in the right direction! Planning is key to success. Do it often and it will become habitual. Good luck with your new job.
