Hi Butterfly Dawn
I agree with the thyroid issue..so much so i did actually ask the doc for a test about 4 months ago now. I told him I'd been charting my temps for a month and had never seen one over 36. That my hair was so thin now my scalp is almost visible. That I was always cold. That the weight issue was ridiculous. Yada yada. Not only did he turn around and tell me temp had very little to do with thyroid (yeah yeah) he also refused my request to do a T3 and T4 test. Long and short of the matter is that the base test came back with acceptable levels..he actually said "there, that shows you should have no problems losing weight". Oh boy, would I love to let him ride in MY body for a few weeks!
I guess i should have stood up to him...but I'm such a wooz.
So anyways, I did some research on other ways of improving thyroid function and came up with the kelp. Dr. Atkins also recommended Carnitine and Q10 for ppl having problems so I've been taking them also. Not sure if anything is working or not tho lol.
I usually only see the doc once every 6 months for BP tablets script refill...I'm not a doctor lover (almost as bad as the dentist) and prefer to try and 'heal myself' wherever possible. Lucky I'm a pretty healthy specimen...despite the obesity
Re the scales...I should have been more specific. It isn't really the difference in weights that concerns me..its the fact that one scale will show me a loss of (this is from this mornings readings): Scale 1: - 400 g. Scale 2: - 800g. Scale 3: -900g. Yesterday Scale 1 showed a loss of 600g while scale 2 showed me GAINING 400g. These readings are taken from each individual scale..so theoretically if i actually lost 500g EVERY scale should show the same loss. But they don't and there's no rhyme nor reason to it. Which i guess just cements home the fact that scales are shite and we should learn to not listen to any of them! But bet I still will
With the celery. I've been trying all sorts of things and nothing quitttttte cuts it like peanut paste
. I'll just have to use it even more sparingly!
Anyways...foods been great all week..managed to survive the 'day of cravings'..barely!. Will do official weigh-in in the morning...tomorrow night is the work-do so it'll be my free day. Hello calories. And hangover
Exercise has gone by the wayside a bit as my foot is very sore. Another gripe with the doc there..he tells me it's PROBABLY a stress fracture of my foot..and to keep off it as much as possible. I might demand an xray next time and some sort of treatment cos it isn't getting better.
Off to hang out the washing ugh.
Cheers (and no beers
