Feeling depressed

Friday, December 06, 2019

I know I shouldn't give up but not seeing results after 2 months is very hard. I keep gaining and losing these 5 lbs over and over and over. I know I have a thyroid issue and it takes longer for me but really?! I know I had the audacity to have cheese in my salad but a 2lb water gain? I understand sleep is important but how do I force myself to sleep when I just lay there and toss and turn. I'm back to 227, again.

I also did some research and this numbness and leg weakness might be permanent from the surgery. WHAT?! I don't want to feel like this forever. I had a nasty blister the other day and never knew as I couldn't feel it. I feel like my leg is just floppy when I try to run. Jumping is a joke. Jumping jacks, nope, not enough strength.

I know this is all negative talk. I go to the gym 3 times a week, one or twice with a trainer. I do Zumba. Most days I am over 10,000 steps. I swing dance. My legs are currently sore from Wednesday's workout. If I hadn't worked hard they wouldn't hurt.

Today is a new day and maybe I am just having a bad day. I have Zumba tonight and a Swing dance tomorrow, chorus rehearsal and swing dance lessons Sunday. Maybe I'll feel better tomorrow.

    I have hashimoto's too. It is really hard, especially if you are undermedicated. Low carb, whole food will make it easier. With hashi's, processed carbs are kryptonite. Selenium will help your body convert the T4 to T3 and will lower your antibodies. Mushrooms are a good source, along with Brazil nuts, eggs and seafood. Melatonin for sleep, reduce your stress levels, and it will happen!

    This hits us all at times. Keep working on the sleep thing, I’m a tossed too. I sure connect with a lot of your issues- thyroid, numbness, sleep problems. I do respect your how you get out and DO. Don’t give up it may get better sooner or later.

    We all get down in the dumps from time to time. The "thing" is not to stay there. You're doing everything to "get on with it!" Great job!!

    Your night classes are probably making your muscles retain water, causing some gains in the A.M. on your scale. My bff has diabetes and thyroid problems, watches her eating closely, and she works out HARD, DAILY, and STILL struggles to lose weight. But her dr. told her she's more FIT than many women half her age, and that's what counts more than a number on a scsle! You are not alone! emoticon
