Skinny Sister

SKINNY SISTER

 

The other day my skinny sister called and said she just came from the doctor.


“Apparently I have a thyroid problem” she said.

 

“You bitch.  Are you serious? I have been dying to have a thyroid problem.  Every time I go to the doctor I beg her to diagnose me with a thyroid problem.  It’s the answer to all my problems.”

 

Of course the skinny sister gets the thyroid problem. I truly am jealous.  You mean I have to spend hours running, lifting, steaming, baking, chopping vegetables, and beating myself up at the gym with a trainer.  Skinny sister gets to take a little pill, the weight should fall off and she’ll fit back into her size 28, 7 For All Mankind jeans.  What a bitch.

 

I have gone back to the doctor several times claiming that there must be something wrong with me. Ever since the birth of my third child in April 2008, I have been suspicious I had a thyroid problem since I have all the signs –

 

-       Muscle and join pain (which was diagnosed as fibromyalgia)

-       Depression (diagnosed as post-partum)

-       Fatigue (diagnosed at chronic fatigue)

-    Trouble losing weight

 

Since last September I have lost 20 pounds on Weight Watchers.  But I stopped losing, and I still have 40 pounds to go to put me in my “healthy” weight range.  I have notebooks full of menus and workouts that I have utilized over the last year.  I hand them to the doctor.  She says, “just keep doing what you’re doing.  All of your blood work is fine.  You appear to be a very healthy individual.”

 

If I am so healthy, why then don’t I fit into designer jeans?  Why is my BMI up over 30?  That indicates that I am obese.  If I am obese, how can I be healthy?  I need to take the weight off not just for vanity’s sake but to keep up with my kids who are 4, 3 and 1 (which is perhaps why I’m tired!).


 I didn’t get my thyroid diagnosis.  So, it looks like I’m just going to have to keep working hard at it.  REALLY hard.  And I do plan to take all of this weight off.   I invite you to take this journey with me.  I will try new products, classes and recipes.  I would love to hear any tips or suggestions you might have and would appreciate your feedback.


 40 pounds to a healthy me.


 I am going for it…

Be careful what you wish for! Thyroid problems usually put the pounds on! Best strategy is Eat Smart & Keep Moving!

I love this. Thanks for the helpful hints (especially the ones that involved vodka). Going to Target tomorrow!

Kelly, I have been enjoying reading your blog! You are an inspiration to all of us. I am currently wanting to shed some pounds myself, and I have been combining a yoga class, along with running and minimizing my carbs. If I do eat carbs, I make sure I eat it with a lot of protein and drink lots of water. I am not an expert on weight loss, but this is what is working for me. I try to do power walks if I'm not in the mood to run. Want to join me some time? I usually go after drop offs at school.

Thanks for your support! I would LOVE to do a power walk with you. I'm up for anything new and exciting that will get me moving. It's great to find people with the same goals too...very motivating.
