Losing Weight With No Thyroid, Part 9

I haven’t posted a weight update in a while. I didn’t do an official weigh in last month, maybe that has something to do with it. But honestly, I know, I’ve plateaued. I’m about 20 pounds down and I’ve been stuck here for a while now. Being sick most of May didn’t help because IContinue reading “Losing Weight With No Thyroid, Part 9”

Don’t Wait for Bad to Appreciate Good

Last night, I was watching Keeping Up with the Kardashians. You can judge me if you want but I genuinely enjoy the show, it’s pure genius. ( I don’t care what Kate Couric says) In the most recent episode, the family is on a ski vacation in Montana. It was a great trip, the usualContinue reading “Don’t Wait for Bad to Appreciate Good”

I’m On My Way to Who I AM

  Image Credit: Life has a way of always keeping you on your toes; just when you think you’ve got it all figured out, you realize how much there is to know.

Losing Weight With No Thyroid, Part 6

I’m on this crowded train to work with a lunch bag, a gym bag and a purse. Two of my bags are on the seat next to me. I look up and I see the MTA courtesy counts campaign. “Be a space saver. The less space your things take up, the more room for everyone”Continue reading “Losing Weight With No Thyroid, Part 6”

Losing Weight With No Thyroid, Part 5

As I stuffed my face with wings and mac for the Super Bowl, I thought about how important it is to be realistic with “diets.” For me this is not about a diet, I don’t plan on hitting my goal in July and then moving on. For me this is a complete life style change.Continue reading “Losing Weight With No Thyroid, Part 5”

Check the Necks

As Thyroid Awareness Month comes to a close, I think about how I just learned we had a month. I think about how depleting this disease was/is to my life; something that estimated 20 million Americans suffer from but yet people are unaware. My goal is to be the face of thyroid disease. We needContinue reading “Check the Necks”

Losing Weight With No Thyroid, Part 4

I hope this isn’t premature. My official weigh in and measurements are not until 1/8/15. But my energy level has increased and overall I do feel better. As you know, I’ve been trying a few different things. Fruits and Veggies! I’m at the point where my taste buds are being retrained. I crave apples andContinue reading “Losing Weight With No Thyroid, Part 4”
