Let's Try This Again

A few months ago I started a blog to help keep me motivated regarding my weight loss. Little did I know at that time, what challenges would be coming down the road.

Now I know all those challenges, which I recently wrote about regarding my thyroid & hormone issues, plus other things. Weight loss isn't my goal right now. Getting healthy is. Weight loss from what I've been told may not even happen for a while...if ever. At least until we get things headed in the right direction.

Each day I log in to the dashboard here at Blogger, I see the weight loss blog and it haunts me. I feel guilty that I haven't added to it, but there's been nothing to add. And now that I know I won't be able to add to it for a while, I just don't need the guilt, ya know?

So I deleted that blog. The guilt is gone.

My NP I'm seeing wants me to keep a journal of what we do and how I'm feeling, but I don't want to do that here. This blog is about more important things like useless facts and trivia. It can't be bothered with serious things like test results, health and well being. So, you guessed it....I've started a 2nd blog. I figured my mom & dad would at least probably want to know how the treatments are going. :)

Here's the address:

You're welcome to follow it. Just don't expect anything exciting, unless you find how many times I napped today exciting. If anyone reads it and has experienced any of what I'm going through, I would LOVE your input! I will also be adding links to sites or blogs that I feel are helpful in this journey as well.

Hope to see you on the mountain!

I thought what you were going through was just typical menopause. 6 years ago, I entered that golden era. Then a year later, I quit smoking. You talk about a body going whacky! I put on weight and fluid that was SOOO uncomfortable. I was tired all of the time. And the worse thing, I had a cloud that set up residency in my brain. I'm a bookkeeper so not being able to think or concentrate was kind of a problem. I asked my NP when it would go away. She said that it doesn't, but that most women learn to deal with it. She said they figure out ways around all of it. I'm happy to say that she was right. AND I'm happy to report that a few months ago I bought a Pilates DVD and I'm seeing improvement in my fatigue problem and weight loss. As far as my brain....I've just decided to look at it as going through my second childhood....people will just have to excuse me. LOL!
