Goal: Lose 10 pounds by Thanksgiving, so my clothes fit better, so I feel better, and to prepare to my trip to Jamaica in December. That's about a pound a week. I can do this!

Week 1: September 11-17 - did okay with diet, not so good with exercise.

Weight
September 11 - 10 pounds heavier than I'd like to be.

Goal for this week (week of September 11): I'd like to increase my exercise. I bought a gym membership...need to use it!

***********************************************************
Week 2: September 18-24...okay, I did not do such a good job tracking my progress throughout the week, but I did great with my diet and pretty good with my exercise.
Weight
September 11 - 10 pounds heavier than I'd like to be.
September 18 - 9 pounds heavier than I'd like to be. I'm down one!

Weight

September 25 - 8 pounds heavier than I'd like to be. I'm down two pounds! :)


Goal for this week (week of September 25): I am traveling for business this week, and that always makes dieting and exercising twice as hard. But I have my "eye on the prize" so I will do my best!

I would like to get in on this too. I'm just recovering from surgery so I'm starting small. Before the surgery I'd play doubles tennis 3 - 4 x a week and walk 3 - 4 miles a couple times a week and maybe even jog/walk a wee bit.

Here's last week
9/19 - nothing
9/20 - surgery TT
9/21 - barfed all day (lost 2 lbs!!!)
9/22 - came home, laid around
9/23 - walked around the block very slowly, went out to eat
9/24 - resumed light housework, went out to eat
9/25 --- tomorrow... my goal is to maybe walk around the block 2x and go to church.

Gotta start small here.

Benign multinodular goiter pressing on windpipe
Total Thyroidectomy 9/20/2011- recovering well
125 micrograms Levothroid per day---> over medicated
6/13/2012 reduced to 112 micrograms Levothyroid per day ---> undermedicated

Now on 137 micrograms and am probably still hypo.

Also have Rheumatoid Arthritis and take Plaquenil for it.

Yes you do but since you are already exercise oriented, your body "remembers!" And you can bet your bippy on that. You will snap to in no time. Just don't push too hard; promise us all that, please?

The above is opinion only, not medical advice. No doctor degrees here. Please seek the advice of a qualified physician........ Andros :D

Graves' Disease, Lupus (Systemic & Discoid), Sjogren's and old age. ;) Armour........3 1/2 grains per day.

Welcome all members! Thank you everyone for participating on this board, for helping other posters and for sharing your experiences and wisdom!

Yeah, today I pushed a little too hard. I walked 2.5 miles, did laundry, and even drove to the bank. The driving was not so good, turning my head and all. Now my neck is raging sore. So I just sat on the bed for 2 straight hours watching old movies. Ok, back to the bed. Lesson learned.... slow down or you'll pay for it later!!!!! Thanks Andros.
