Positive: I will NOT give up despite my crazy body! Also... get to spend time with lots of family today! I love them!

Negative: .... jk... but this is going to be a bit negative haha. Well I have been researching a lot about hypothyroidism because I am almost positive I have it. (Janet- did the themometer test last night and I my temperature was at 96.8 which puts me in the hypothyroidism category.. I still need to do it for 4 more days, i'll keep you posted) So I've been looking up the medications and what not... and have felt TERRIBLE reading those posts! Almost all of them were talking about how their medication hasn't helped them lose any weight!... All I could think of was.. oh my heck, i'm going to be huge forever. All my dreams of being healthy and thin seemed to fly out the window, and all I could think was I'm going to turn into an old bitter single lady with no future. (told you it was negative)

But after going to church and telling myself to buck up... I feel much better. I'm now questioning if I want to go get it checked or not. I decided however, that i'm going to keep pushing on no matter what this crazy body thinks. Even if I'm not losing weight.. i'm getting stronger, i'm making healthier choices, and that has to count for something. Who knows... maybe my diet just needs to be cleaned up and the weight will start to follow. Thats what i'm going to try now.. because now I look at this as a medical issue instead of a vanity issue. I want my body to be healthy and function the way it should..

Does anyone out there have hypothyroidism and have been able to lose weight despite it? Are you on medications and has it helped? Do you think I should get checked?

    Hi ByeByeFat,
    I just happened to read your blog today and actually left you a comment. Somehow through computer glitch my comment got erased so I decided, since it was quite long, I would just make it into a blog of my!
    I invite you to read my blog for today Dec. 1, 2013 about Autoimmune Diseases of the Thyroid. I hope it will help you, especially since you have questions about having thyroid problems. I hear your heart and the frustration you feel about weight-loss and possible thyroid problems.
