Good News at the Doctor Appt.
Friday, December 14, 2012
My thyroid is going to be okay. The Doctor is keeping me on my same medication. I'll feel tired, "foggy," forgetful for a few more weeks.
One of the side effects of hypothyroidism is high anxiety, which I continue to experience. Not a good time with holidays and work but I'm rolling with it. Med adjustment there and an appointment in 30 days.
My posted weight change today reflects what Wii fitness said. However at the Dr's it was the miracle magical number .... 170. My BMI is now classified as normal.
He feels my goal of 148 is attainable but not maintainable or I would struggle to keep it, more anxiety. After several measurements he said that it should be 160. I would be considered at a healthy weight and maintain it eating a healthy diet. He reminded me that I am 48, not 28 and I won't be looking like the models in the magazines. *sigh*
After all that news, I needed a bit of retail therapy at the consignment store. I started trying on clothes and found that many were too big. I purchased a pair of size 14 jeans. It's been a long time since I saw that number on a tag of jeans I was wearing. I purchased a few tops, size Large. I did try on a pair of 12's and got them zippered and buttoned. I couldn't breathe though :)
Perhaps in a few days, this will soak in. I thought I'd be super excited but I just want a nap!
