4.2#, 2” down!

Friday, May 21, 2021

28 days since my last blog post and I’m headed in the right direction with my health. Current stats - down 2 inches & 4.2 pounds B 36 (down from 36.5) -.5 W 32 (down from 32.5) -.5 H 38.5 (down from 39.5) -1 Th 19.5 (20.5) -.1 C 14.5 (14.5) 0 Weight (in jeans) 152.6 (down from 156.8) -4.2 I got a new Apple Watch for Mother’s Day/ birthday/anniv and I’ve been closing those rings! I’ve been doing the C25K and am finishing week 4. I’ve also been working out 2-3 times a week on the days I don’t run. If it’s too cold, I was running on the treadmill. I even did my daughters challenge of 3/12/30 (speed/incline/minutes) for a killer leg workout and a 300 calorie burn in 30 minutes. Food - I’ve been eating more salads with veggies, lean protein (eggs, egg whites, turkey, steak) berries, and generally just eating less and logging to make sure I’m creating a calorie deficit. It seems like I need to really create a large gap to see the scale move down. (Wondering if my thyroid meds need to be adjusted?) If I eat the right things, I’m not hungry and can still create a deficit. I’ve also added in some protein shakes (Truvani chocolate blended with ice, & banana is what I like) I’ve been looking up the AIP diet and think I’m going to try to eat more foods on that to help boost my low thyroid. I’m excited to incorporate more Salmon because I think I will benefit from that. Also going to buy some Brazil nuts to eat 1-2/day to get my selenium up. Bye for now!

    I take my Synthroid pill first thing in the morning and wait 30 to 45 minutes most mornings before I eat . Ask the druggist emoticon for any tips on how to make sure your getting the best out of your thyroid meds. Take care .

    Congratulations on your progress. Sounds like you're enjoying your new Apple watch and it's supporting you in improving your health and well-being.

    Wondering about the thyroid meds is definitely something to keep in mind.

    When thyroid function is dialed in I'm able to maintain the weight loss. Thyroid function has been unstalbe since October 2019 and we've (medical team and I) been struggling to stabilize it and the weight gain has been unrelenting. There have been short blips to the downside; but, nothing sustained. And, I know that I am eating well. Physically, exercise is ill advised for me given another disease. So, exercise is not an option. I've been able to easily maintain without exercise. The food choices have been far more important to my health and weight maintenance. Faltering thyroid function throws a wrench in the entire process.

    You're doing a lot of wonderful things in terms of food to support your thyroid. emoticon
