When did I get here?!

Tuesday, August 07, 2012

I am so disappointed in my weight. Went to the doctor yesterday and never weighed so much. Good news is I am no longer at hyperthyroid level, but unfortunately now transitioning over to hypothyroid. I hate it because I have hypothyroid symptoms before I officially even hit the hypothyroid numbers!

I am not the type to give in or use excuses. I was told to keep an eye on my weight before by doctors, but this time I got the lecture of being a bad girl. I can't believe I let things get this far. However, I need to bounce back. This is not the time for self-pitty, but to take responsibility. I don't want to be an obese person and use my thyroid as an excuse. I want to be the person no one believes REALLY has a thyroid problem because I look so healthy!

Yesterday was my wake-up call. I have had them several times, but never to this extent. I read an encouraging story on FB of weight loss and the steps the person (who is now weight loss nutritionist) incorporated in her daily routine to be successful. I plan on implementing several or all of them myself. 1. Plan out the days with what foods to eat that will be of benefit to the entire body and all organs and decide to eat those foods. 2. Let someone know of plans and/or pray about them. 3. She says a prayer throughout the day to be faithful to diet which I think is also a good idea. 4. If there is the temptation to slip, again pray and/or call someone positive to help you through. 5. IF there is a slip, get back on track the NEXT meal (not the next day). I am going to follow at least a few of these. Bottom line is to keep someone in your corner who will help and keep you accountable as well as encourage. It has to be someone that does not mind being involved daily. OR you have have a few people to alternate with. I am hoping this makes a big difference with my struggle.

    Great ideas! I'd print out this blog and keep a couple copies where you can read it every day for inspiration!

    I am in the same position as you - how does it happen? I can say with some honesty that I feel like I woke up one day and was this weight, with these health issues. Are we so busy in our lives that we forget about our LIVES?

    I joined Spark Coach today and am encouraged, a lot of the same information you gained on FB.

    You can do this - I can do this - we have to priortize ourselves. It's like the videos they show on airplanes - you have to put your own mask on first, before you can help others. Why is that so obvious and yet so hard to do?

    Putting my mask on now - good luck!
