In all honesty, these past 3 weeks have been trying. I have tracked food consistently, exercised, drank tons of water, and alas I got on the scale and I was up 2 pounds. Granted, I have had some pretty horrendous stomach issues this week that finally seem to be subsiding after changing up my diet.
I can count 3 days (out of the last 3 weeks) that I have gone over my caloric intake, and it wasn’t by a crazy amount. Every week when I get on the scale I tell myself that I won’t get discouraged and that if I keep plugging away the weight will eventually HAVE to come off, right? Apparently, this does not seem to be true in my case.
This past week I had a Dr.’s appt. that I was forced to make because they would not refill my thyroid medication until it got checked. Little did I know that this was a blessing in disguise.
I got a call from my Doctor letting me know that my medication needs to be increased! Great news! He also said, and I quote “this increase in dosage should help to speed up your metabolism, and get you back on track”.
Needless to say I was ecstatic when I got off the phone.
Tomorrow I start taking my new dosage of thyroid hormone, and I’m hoping that combined with my diet and exercise that I have been so diligent with, I will start to see some positive results!
Have a happy weekend! I know I will!
