I have not posted here for months! Things have been crazy with applying to graduate school (I got my Bachelors in December yay) and working on my thyroid issues, I have been really sick.

I am down 55 pounds now and seem to be going down weekly even if slow I am glad I am not going up anymore!

Today I saw a new doctor and she gave me some supplements because supposedly I have a b12 and d3 defficiancy which is part of the reason I have been feeling so awful. I really hope they work :)

I hope anyone who reads this is doing well!

Haven't posted for a while because i was very discouraged. I gained a pound on Friday so I was very upset. This was a big deal because I honestly thought I would have another big loss, so did the doctor. I mean my clothes are practically falling off me... anyway he seems to think the steroids caught up to me from the prior week... I still don't really get why my clothes would be like that then >< It's just very frustrating when you work so hard then see that.

He gave me a medicine that should help increase my metabolism... not to thrilled about the idea but I am giving it a shot. I am much more full but it interferes with my sleeping.

Well I have continued to be good hopefully I see results...

So I burned 1,357 calories yesterday! I did the 45 minute walking dvd (3 mikes) and of course my zumba again! Yay for zumba. 

Since I have been on the t3 I have had some good effects! My eyebrows are officially back! My left one more so but the right one is growing back too. Thank goodness for bangs! My mood has been more up and I am not as tired. As well as I am not skipping my time of the month anymore. And of course I am no long gaining weight which is awesome. I am so happy I finally found a good doctor! I want to like call up my old one and be like "you suck!" but I will refrain from doing so. 

Hope everyone is good!

I have to get up early now because I need to take my thyroid pills an hour before I eat, I guess it's good for me to get up early anyway. For the past 2 days my upper legs in front are KILLING me both of them... I don't know if I pulled them or something but it is pretty awful and driving me a little bit crazy. Maybe it's the steriods... 

I don't know if I have ever mentioned this before but my fitness pal is a really good site. I have been using it to track what I am eating and my exercise since I have left weight watchers. It has almost every food on the list and breaks it down into not just calories but fat, sugar, carbs, protein etc based on your weight and stuff. There is even an app for your smart phone/ipod and if it has a camera you can scan the barcode of something and it know's all the nutrition stuff for you! Everyone should check it out. 

For the first time last night I did the fast walking dvd the 15 minute brisk one and normally I do the slow one. It was hard with my legs hurting but I was happy I was able to do it because a few months ago it was too hard for me to do. I am going to try one of the full dvd's today the 45 minute one.

So I have not posted in a really long time.

I started t3 medication for my thyroid 2 weeks ago and have lost almost 7 pounds so far so that is going well. Last week I had an asthma attack and ended up on a ton of prednisone (steriods) so I was so worried I would gain but I was down! That is very new for me and it's exciting. I am starting up zumba again tomorrow I had to take a break because of my asthma attack. I imagine I will loose a lot more doing it again.

I hope everyone is doing well I am gonna try and post more this week!

So I have not posted in a long time and decided I should... I am going through thyroid madness. But now since my TSH is normal the doctor refuses to up my medication... yet I am gaining weight every week, skipping periods, losing my eyebrows and about a million other symptoms.

I am still doing zumba every night (sunday they don't have it) and trying to stick to my points... it is just so hard though because I am seeing no results and working this hard.

So, after gaining weight last week I was really upset. 1.6 is a lot for all of the exercise I did and stuff. I have done zumba almost everyday. My mom got me a new heart rate monitor watch that is easier to use so i can track how I am doing. 

Zumba Yesterday- 45 minutes
805 Calories Burnt
105g of fat
2.6 Miles
3.6 Mikes an hour

Zumba Today- 37 minutes (left before stretching)
651 Calories Burnt
84g of fat
2.241 Miles
3.5 Miles an hour

It's pretty exciting to see those numbers and I really hope it all pays off...
