long blog!

Hiya! I have not written in a while because I have been super busy and the weight loss has come to a stall. My thyroid medication is still not at the right level, so I am all over the place! At least I have managed to lose 1 more pound and have not gained anything back..that is a plus for sure. When my husband left for his business trip, it really threw both of us off. He was eating out and having a hard time keeping track of his calories and it was hard to make good choices. I was missing my husband and was extremely busy the week he was gone and was not on track right with my calories. So..we fell behind a little and the calorie intake was higher than usual. I am definitely not going to beat myself up for it because I am only human..right? I am going to be more in tune with myself this week and pay attention to these things again and pray for God's assistance in getting the fire lit again. I think once my medication gets at a level it needs to be, it will help things along too. It is very hard losing weight with hypothryoidism, but I am determined to do it. I am stumble every once in a while, but I will reach my goal.

We plan on trying for baby #3 in July or August, so once that takes place, the weight gain will only be the baby's, like it was with Jolie. Then it will back to business as usual after that...I hope I did not bore you to tears with this blog but hopefully the next time I write..I will be back to losing! Love all of you and thanks a million for your support:) You make me smile^_^

A link between Fibromyalgia and Hypothyroidism

I did some research yesterday concerning having both of these conditions and ran across this website. I felt if you suffer from one or both of these, please go to this website and see what you think. I found it very interesting and it makes sense. Have a Blessed Day!

and I keep getting more news....

As most of you know, I went to the hospital this past Sunday with chest pains, shaking, dizziness and nausea, just to name a few of the symptoms. They did some tests and thought I was getting an overdose of the Levothyroxine that I was taking for my thyroid disease or something else going on. I made an appointment with my primary care doctor and saw him yesterday. The problem was the opposite, I was not receiving enough of the medication which prompted all those things, along with Fibromyalgia. My doctor actually diagnosed me with Fibromyalgia in November of last year, but being the pig-headed, stubborn person I am, I was not going to buy into that and was definitely not going on medication for it. I was terrified. I just could not think of myself as having such a debilitating condition. I guess, I am going to have to suck it up, listen to the doctor and at least try the meds he is offering to help me. I read up on this medication, Lyrica, and am a little scared because of all the side effects it lists. Will I get them all, just one, or a few?..who knows. It it worth it? Dunno. Time will tell. My weight loss has stalled and I believe it was due to the thyroid being off because my hunger went back up and my calorie count did to! Yikes..went from 1200-1300 to 1500-1700. Today, I was able to be in better control. Here are two books that I would recommend if you suffer from Fibromyalgia or Thyroid disease. Have a wonderful day and I will keep you posted on my progress.
