6-9 months

Sunday, January 05, 2014

So, today is the last day hubby will be home for 6 to 9 months. Sometimes it just sucks having a man in the military.
In 6-9 months, my thyroid hormones should be optimized, so I'll be feeling better, have lots of energy, and (hopefully) will have been able to lose some weight. At least knowing what I know about my thyroid and the associated hormones, I've stopped beating myself up about not being able to lose the weight. It was a battle I was doomed to lose. now, however, with the proper meds, I should be able to lose the weight. Luckily, I have a solid foundation to work with, with everything I've learned at Spark and WW. Plus, the last few years have gotten me in better shape than I've ever been, so to continue on in the same vein should give me results - again, once my meds are optimized. I have to avoid falling into the expectation of instantaneous results - it's what always brings me down. That and the fact that my body couldn't sustain weight loss while my hormones were so wonky.

This year will be great! Even though I'll be spending the majority of it by myself.

    I know you are enjoying your man today. So sorry he'll have to be away for so long, but in the mean time, you'll be getting your meds optimized, doing your exercises, eating great and when you're body's ready, you'll be shedding the pounds!! You have a great plan and remembering that you won't see results overnight will carry you far!! I'm here for you if you ever need me. (((HUGS)))
