I am 3 weeks into taking a thyroid medication for the obvious reasons, I have a under achieving thyroid.
After having kids I have known something was wrong with the way my body was responding to working out and eating well. Everyone around me said I was normal just keep at it. Or perhaps they thought I kept a secret stash of cookies and ice cream somewhere and was not being honest with myself. Whatever anyone else thought about my inability to loose weight or have energy did not fit with what I was truly doing.
Before kids I grew up overweight but by the time high school came around I joined Weight Watchers with my moms support and presto the weight came off. I kept loosing weight through college, adopting a gym routine and running.
I gained a ton of weight with my first pregnancy, hit a wall, had post pardon depression, and trying to raise an asd kid made my anxiety fly through the roof. Nothing was working and by the time number 2 kid came around I felt completely lost trying to understand my body.
Years went by and many coaches were paid for and nothing happened. Sure people had their answers but still no results for the work I was putting in. I went to the doctor, she asked for blood work and it all came back “normal.”
What normal?! Are you kidding?! Well 5 month later I asked for a second opinion and someone who would treat my symptoms even in the test was grounds for normal.
I am pleased to say I am sleeping through the night and waking up before my alarm clock. I am not dropping weight but I have seen the needle go down a few pounds and my energy is a little improved.
I’m not advocating the use of medicine as my savior but I do think its helping. I needed to find someone who would hear me out. I knew my body was not functioning properly wether or not a test could prove it.
