Just so tired of being FAT! Was way easier to lose weight back before menopause. Hypothyroidism sure gummed up the works too!

Member Since: 1/12/2009

Fitness Minutes: 90,903

My Goals:
My original weight loss goal from the Kmart weight loss challenge that started Jan/08 was to fit into my wedding dress by my 25th anniversary. Thought it was achieveable. Lost 20 pounds and was well on my way. Thyroid problem hit/ gained most of it back and have been struggling since Fall 08 with weight loss.
New goal to lose 5-10 pounds and KEEP it off. Then I will go from there.Anniversary is 4/20/10.
I know now I will never again fit into that dress, just not going to happen. Think I might have a shot at the new goal though. Just hoping the medication finally kicks in and gets my metabolism back to normal.

My Program:
I usually work out 4-5 times a week for 60-90 minutes. My work outs vary between walking/ cardio/ strength and aerobics. Try to get at least 10000 steps a day
have to watch the diet a little better. Do pretty good with limitting fats/ big downfall is candy.
Any kind, but especially Mike N Ikes and twizzlers. Give me STRENGTH!!!!!

Personal Information:
I live in Brook Park, Ohio. Am in my 50's married, mother and gramma. work part time in a Doctor's office. Have 3 children and 3 grandchildren and anxiously awaiting the birth of the fourth in January!!!!

    Hey! I was reading about your story and I SO sympathize with the thyroid issues! I've been hypo since my early 20s and now it is compounded with depression - so weight management has become a big deal - to say nothing of weight loss - sometimes I feel like I have to work x2 as hard as everyone else to just maintain my current weight.

    I hope your meds start kicking in soon - and exercise is SO helpful for counter-acting the fatigue. God bless!

    Thank you for the clover, if it wasn't for my bad luck I'd have no luck at all!

    Happy St. Patrick's Day!
