Progress - finally :)

Well, after all the blood workup........
My doctor said I needed to work on my adrenals - my cortisol levels were high, that is purely stress related, so my adrenals were stressed out. So I have been working on those for about a month and I have another month to go. I went in this last week and he said that things were definitely looking better to just keep at it for the next month. After that I will take another cortisol test and if those levels are good, then we will move on to working on my thyroid and scheduling to get my fillings removed.
Shockingly, I am down almost 7 lbs in the last 2 weeks - which is UNHEARD of for me for the last several years. I told him that for the last few weeks I have been sleeping throughout the night and feel really good and rested when I wake up in the morning. He said good, that means I should start to lose weight. Wow - how exciting is that. I guess all this is working.
I am thrilled, I have worked hard for so many years and nothing has happened and it turns out to be something internal that I could not "fix" on my own. This is exciting. I will still continue to work out, because I enjoy it, but now it is so much more satisfying because it seems that it is actually working. It was working for me before to maintain my weight and to keep me active - but NOW I am actually seeing the results on the scale and in my clothes (which we all know is the most important!!)
Finally, I think my trainer will be happy that he can see some results after working out with me for a year :)
He's a teddy bear :)
Anyway, just thrilled things finally seem to be moving forward or backwards (on the scale). God is good.
