I don't have a thyroid anymore... wouldn't suggest it! I hope you totally rock your body out and kick the thyroid problems in the butt!!!! :D!!!! Really though!!! The prozac type pills make me sad for you... hugs.. I am actually working out way more because I am so close to asking for those.. sometimes I just get waves of emotions.. some people have it easier than me and sometimes I just can't stand having all these med issues..it is overwhelming..
I started watching bodyrock.tv and today was actually my first time trying it. I went for a walk in the country and after each house (far apart but not too far, and up hills too) I stopped and did some like she does. I did low-jacks (10) high jumps (10) situps to knees (50), and push ups (10)...I did one of those after each house on my fleece sweatshirt. I felt really awesome to begin!!! I have been watching and reading a lot and the whole research and study up actually helped me, I think I spent about 4 hours ... or internet time here and there and gained a lot.. I wanted to hear her as a real person and I watched a lot of those videos as well.
I still look pregnant because my posture is so poor and I have a slipped disc.. I demand this will all change.. and everything. I want this cloud gone!!! But weight? Ehh.. I wish I was fat.. I mean.. just know this.. if I could have that as a problem I would take it! To me it looks so easy from here! I face different ones and it just feels scary.
I have nothing to say about carbs, diet, etc. I eat like a pro about 85% of the time. This took me a long time to do. I eat vegetable and real grains (rice, buckwheat, etc) and tons of smoothie options. When I eat out I try to get to a subway and get a salad.. yesterday I did and really wanted two because they skimped me, but I went to 7-eleven and bought nuts instead and had some pumpkin seeds in my bag. When they say diet over haul, you gotta think huge.. like fries? what? huh? no thanks.. like everything... I would get a bpa free double wall water cup with straw and name it your best friend.. the straw really helps you consume more. Oh, since we stayed out late all day, I also had a falafel, but I can't feel right on the bread, asked for more toppings (veggie salads) and only one falafel... it was amazing... eating out is rare to be "Amazing" ...sometimes I do go back to the old ways, but it feels like caution for the next two weeks.
Diet = you gotta think huge changes.. huge.. Yes, you should totally do this.. kick it... because dropping a bunch of the animal, cheese, bread, etc, is going to kick the other problems away.. it is hard dude, really hard, but that is how it goes and then!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YOU are the New You!!! and so happy about it! Take calcium chews, eat plenty of seeds and nuts and take a multi and ****fish oils and B-12***** (for the emotions) and while you figure out how to eat more than a grapefruit and oatmeal for breakfast, cucumbers and carrots snack, salad for lunch and stir fry with rice for dinner, you can screw with your diet without depleting your nutrients to much. :D
