Hypothyrodism is ruining my life

Wednesday, July 17, 2013

So I was diagnosed five years ago. I know need to make changes. I know i have to exercise harder. Instead I have gained 50 pounds. I feel ugly depressed and just plain lazy. My husband works out almost everyday. I work out one day and then I hurt for 5. Well today I chose to just make the change. I need to not only for my health but for my daughter sake. I will use this blog and this website as motivator.

    I have Hashis too (like Livedaily), and though slow, I have managed to lose 15 pounds. If I could control the eating, I am sure I would have lost more! You may need adrenal support, too, so you may want to increase vitamin C, take a stress B, magnesium and D3. People with low thyroid often need these to function. You will also need to do strength training as well as cardio. Check in to some of the thyroid teams. There is a lot of info there.

    I also have a form of this disease: Hashimoto's Disease. I encourage you to find a good endocrinologist in your area and have thorough testing done. Remember to take your medication at the same time every day. Be consistent. It IS possible to lose weight with hypothyroidism!! I joined SP a year ago, and I have lost 65 pounds!! Has it been easy? No, but it hasn't been excruciatingly hard either. You can do it. You say DH works out almost every day, but you work out 1 and you are in pain. Maybe you are trying to do too much all at once, instead of taking the slow and steady route. When I first started with fitness, I could only do chair exercises. Last time I was at the gym I rode 8 miles on the recumbant bike. Remember though, it's taken me a year to get to that point. Don't give up. Persevere. People are here at SP to help you. You can do it.

    emoticon emoticon Just in case you stumble along the way, we're here to help and motivate each other. Today is the first day of your new journey. You're not ugly, you're a very beautiful young lady. I also have a few issues with pain. I started out small (on the days that I had extreme pain) doing jumping jacks, walking in place, using a hoola hoop, etc. I was determined to not allow excruciating pain to run my life. I then became able to walk for short distances. Just a few days ago, I walked 10.5 miles. I started SP due to a weight gain of almost 40 lbs. in 13 days due to an increase in medication. My point being, we're in this together, and we motivate each other. I know your situation is different from mine, but I'm ready to begin cheering for you, because I believe you can do it! emoticon
