6 months down!

I realized this morning while entering my weight on my spreadsheet that today marks 6 months since I started my journey in earnest. I was hoping to lose 50 pounds in 6 months and 100 pounds in a year. (Secretly, I was really hoping for 10 pounds a month and 100 pounds in 10 months). I've never made it past 30 pounds or 4 months before.

My weigh in this morning put me right between those two . . . 56 pounds exactly! I couldn't be happier! I don't do much in the way of exercise, so I can't be critical of myself for not hitting 60 pounds. I JUDDD and my fellow JUDDDers!

Congratulations!! And thanks for being such a vocal advocate for JUDDD and a cheerleader/coach to those (me) with concerns/questions - you certainly were a big reason I came aboard.

With your determination, I just KNOW you're going to reach your goal. I'll be rooting for you!

First, thank you everyone. If it weren't for this forum and you wonderful ladies (and couple of men, Jamie ) I know I would have probably thrown in the towel. You all inspire me so much.

Nancy, I think I'm finally feeling some improvement. I'm not freezing all the time, though it's been in the 90's here a few times in the last week. I have a little more energy and I'm less "foggy-headed" so I think the meds are helping. I go back in about a week for blood work, and they'll determine when that comes back if my dosage needs to be adjusted. What's weird is that some of the classic symptoms didn't start (or I didn't notice maybe) until after I was diagnosed. My hair has started falling out! Ugh, I'm going to be all skinny and sexy, but with no hair!

Dawn-it's interesting that you mention not noticing some of the symptoms before getting diagnosed. When I got diagnosed almost 11 years ago I don't remember having any symptoms. My dr just found it during my physical. I had never heard of thyroid! Now when ever I feel a little off, my first thought is 'wonder if my thyroids off again'. Usually not.

Great job on your WL!! You are so inspiring and this place wouldn't be the same without you.

Bald, but skinny and sex!!!

One more note, I was diagnosed with low thyroid when I was pre-menopause about six years ago and the thing I noticed right after I started dosing with armour thyroid, is the fact that I didn't feel like taking a nap ever! I used to wake up on Sat or Sun and be right back in bed about noonish. I had no clue that my thyroid was the cause!
