Well I lost another pound this week!
I'll take anything at this point. I know the thyroid problem I think I have is really hindering my weight loss. I have been reading up on it, and trying to find things I can do to help it that don't require seeing a doctor and getting a prescription, since that isn't possible. So far, I've learned that foods with high fat content can be harmful, so I'm trying to avoid those. I've also started taking Probiotic Pearls supplements recommended for thyroid sufferers and learned that it's very important that I remember to take the omega 3,6,9 supplement that I've been taking. I've started back up on my multi-vitamin which I hadn't been taking in months, and read that it's important to get enough zinc and selenium, so the next vitamin I buy will need to have more of those in it.
I can already tell a difference. I have more energy and have been accomplishing more each day. That makes me soooo happy! My emotions are more stable, and that makes EVERYONE happy! I want to be healthy so bad. I truly hope I am on the right road to a happier and healthier me! I want to enjoy ALL my days instead of just trying to get through some. Sometimes my energy is so low, I can barely get dinner cooked, and I DON'T get it cleaned up. It is still much better than it was before I changed my diet. 6 months ago, I would just cry in the middle of the day and pray and tell God that I was so tired of being tired and being unable to take care of my home and family properly. I'm so thankful that He is answering my prayers and beginning to heal my body through diet change and these new supplements. As soon as my weight is down a little more (so I won't throw my lower back out) I intend to add exercise back in. I know that will help my health even more. Exercise does so much for the body and mind...a whole lot more than just helping to shed pounds. That's really just the icing on the cake. I still hope to be able to see a doctor one day, and get some tests ran for my numerous health issues, but I'm thankful for the changes that I can make and the wisdom that God has given me to do so.
I'm looking forward to next weeks weigh-in! (I have a beautiful skirt I'm waiting to fit into, and I'm not far away!)
