Right, I am going to do this! I will be successful!

Where do I start, in the past, I have been more than 100kgs and got down to 60kg when I turned 30 after 20yrs of being overweight. I can't say I did it the right way but oh well, its in the past. I was compulsive in everyway I tackled it from 5hrs working out to extreme dieting.

I kept it off until four years ago when something went wrong. I got so tired, my joints hurt, my bones started disintegrating ... Three years ago I started surgery on my feet and they are now the bane of my existence - every step hurts. I never stopped going to the gym throughout this time, but cut back from my 4 hrs a day to maybe one which for some people is alot, for me, It doesn't count. I love weightlifting, loved spin, boxing, etc. My knees are shot, my achilles is going to rupture, have neuromas in both feet, bursitis in both hips, spinal facet joints are disintegrating... But I do still train, just cut back on the intensity. I walk 7miles a day even with all these problems.

I was also put on Metformin and Diannette for PCOS over 10yrs ago - which it appears I don't have! Last year, after going off these meds, my thyroid was on its way to collapsing. I'm still titrating up on Armour - I'm on 5gr as of today and will be increasing shortly as still not quite there.

I decided on the wknd after reading so many great posts that I was going to give this a go so here I am! All the posts are so great - so much great info, support and help. I bought the 1994 book as well.

I was never much into carbs but whilst I have cut down on them over the years, it never seemed to make a difference. I have been known to binge on them (chips, fries with ketchip and gravy, pasta) but nothing recent so am not expecting this to be that hard to achieve success.

So as of today, which is four days after starting:
Weight 84.6kg (UK size 16)

My goal is as close to 60kg that I can get and as close to 30 Aug when its my 40th. I'm 5'4 and when smaller, of average build but have always weight trained so do have some muscle bulk.

Fingers crossed. I want my life back. Am tired of being held back by thyroid, ovaries, weight, feet, back, you name it!

Tiggy, welcome to LCF. You certainly have been through tough times with your health issues. I admire you for persevering and still exercising in spite of of pain. I am the pits at exercising and have only recently started. I have been on Armour and Cytomel for years for my thyroid. When I dropped some weight my doc lowered my Armour dosage for the first time ever. I hope that you find the great health benefits of eating LC. Your menus look really good and you get good variety in them. Good luck on your journey!

Thanks so much Phranquie!
I really hope I get there as well! I just upped my dosage and am now up to 6 gr so am looking forward to when I can reduce it. I found I had to increase it since going LC but then I read some articles on the Thyroid Patient Group UK site that said that can happen when you increase protein intake. Very strange, but actually, since increasing, I feel better.

Thanks for your input on my menus, I'm trying! I think I messed up a bit the last week as the ketostix were nowhere near purple so have stopped eating out and really watching again. I am getting a bit frustrated as don't seem to make any progress on my scales, though clothes are getting a bit looser. I'm hoping its just water retention from weight lifting. I went for a 6mile walk Friday, first time after surgery, and almost didn't make it home. Honestly, I want a new pair of feet! Am hoping with some new physio, things will improve. I think that's the worst part - I want to go and do things but that feeling wanes as soon as everything hurts! But am trying :-)

Tiggy, beware about the ketostix. If they read any color at all then you are in ketosis, not just when the color is really dark. I think there are a lot of factors at play including how much water is in your urine and what you have been doing. So don't fret over them not being dark purple. I use the mouth test. When I feel like I have major dragon breath, I know I am burning fat and am in ketosis. Sounds gross but this is the easiest way I can tell.

Also there will be a couple of weeks after you get going on LC where your loss will stop for a couple of weeks. It is normal so don't worry about this. Your loss will start up again and continue as you stick to your plan.

Wow, I was on 3gr of Armour and finally went down. Your thyroid must be quite sluggish. Do keep up with your blood work with your doc as when your diet and weight both change so will your meds. My body does great with Armour and LC eating I do believe the LC eating helps me feel more energy.

Thanks so much Phranquie!

Although 6gr is alot, I've been reading Dr Lowe's book on fibromyalgia and he seems to find that those with fib require higher doses than those with just thyroid issues, go figure! I think I'm much closer to my sweet spot now, so fingers crossed!

Thanks for the breath mint tip!!! Will keep a nose out for that!

Just wish I would stop yo-yoing with these same 3kgs!!!

Tiggy, you have an amazing and varied exercise plan! I have just started to walk and do zumba classes so I am in awe of how much you do.

I hope you are feeling well and that you have been enjoying the lc plan you are on. Your menus look really good and varied.

Thanks so much Phranquie! I wish I could do Zumba - too much twisting and foot work for my recovering toes and ankles! I used to salsa but that's out too for now - suffering from bad achilles and after effects of foot surgery which didn't quite work out! Walking is my favourite as it gives you time away - but my feet problems make it difficult and painful - though it hasn't quite stopped me yet, am walking the Breast Cancer Moonwalk next weekend - the full 26miles!

Am sure you are having a great time with zumba and with the weather getting better, walking will be even nicer! If you want to start weight training - give a Body Combat class a try. I started weights 15yrs ago that way and now train with the big boys! It really does help with getting toned, and unless you are lifting like Schwartzenneger, you really won't bulk up.

Have been sooo bad and haven't been updating my journal here so going to get to it now! At least I write everything down. Have some blood work being done later this week to check my T4 and T3 levels so fingers crossed am near my optimum dose!

I so wish I deserve your cudos! I've been naughty quite a few times recently and haven't been keeping up with my online journal either...

But I've been scouring the threads for some better recipes and I'm hoping to be a better girl and cook those up instead of, gasp, ordering a sweet and sour chicken and noodles dinner...
