we now return to our regularly scheduled program

Wednesday, October 03, 2012

Fell off the wagon. More accurately, took exactly two weeks off of my normal eating by going on vacation, tried to pay attention to what I ate, watched my calories, stuck mostly to fresh stuff. Ate a few desserts, nothing super crazy.

Yup. Gained 15 pounds in two weeks. :( The weight it took me 6 months to lose. Gained back and then some. I then went back to what I was doing - tracking, exercising, etc for a month, and lost half a pounds. That's not right.

So yeah, back to the doctor trying to figure out what's wrong. I guess it's still my thyroid? I had a TON of bloodwork done last week, and I'm waiting for them to call me to let me know what's going on. I might not be converting T3 properly, or I might just need a higher dose of Armour. I was on 90mcg of Armour, so for the last week I've been bumped up to 120mcg. So far I don't feel any different, so I'm thinking it might be T3 conversion issues. I'm scheduled for an ultrasound of my thyroid on Monday to rule out any other weirdness like nodules.

Argh, I just want to lose weight like normal people can and not want to sleep for 15 hours a day!!! Fingers crossed that bloodwork will reveal something helpful for a change.

    Ouch. That really sucks. A lot of weight to gain in 2 weeks. Something must be wrong. I hope they can find it and nip it in the bud. LOL.
