Weight loss that is.
After a very sobering visit with my doctor back on June 16th , 2008.
My weight was 318, BP was through the roof.
I started following the Weight Watchers points plan that same day.
I started to workout also.
5 days later I learned from my Dr. that I had Hypothyroidism.
So lets just say I had a lot on my plate all at once.
With the onset of treatment for the Hypothyroidism my desire to consume mass quantities and boat loads of sugar diminished substantially.
So now as I write this its Aug. 15th and I have lost 28 pounds. I weight in at 290 on the 11th.
I still have so far to go but feel so much better already.
My goal weight is 198. If I get there, I will reward my self with a trip to a foreign country! Now that's incentive!!!
I almost joined the WW web site but then I found the Sparkspeople web site and was so impressed with the community that I felt this is where I want to be.
I am looking forward to not only getting help and support from my fellow Sparkers on my new journey but I look forward to helping and encouraging others who on the same path of weight loss as I.
I will be glad to talk to anyone with Hypothyroidism also.
Just e-mail me!!
Any Red Sox fans out there drop me a line too!! I'm a card carrying member of the RED SOX NATION!!

    Hey, are you by any chance a Red Sox fan? :)
    Howdy from another Sparker in Florida. I love that pier in St. Pete in your pic - my husband has only successfully taken me fishing once, and it was there. Congrats on the lbs. lost and keep up the good work!!!
