Endo Schmendo

Hey y'all!

I saw my Endocrinologist this week. That's starting to be such a naughty word lol. While my levels are normal and I feel my new normal of "fine," I'm fat. Most people look at me and say you aren't fat, a little bit of weight looks good on you. I'm the heaviest I have ever been in MY life and I don't like it. Not one bit. My neck is slowly disappearing. I can't let it leave me!

What does my Endo say? The next time I come back I need to be AT LEAST 10 pounds lighter. He also maintains that my weight gain is a direct result of my snacking and has nothing to do with my no longer having a thyroid. I call BULLSHIT (sorry mom)!

I have NEVER had an issue with losing weight. Ever. Now though, it seems like the more I try, the more I gain. I'm eating 80% better than I normally do. I'm about to get some exercise in rotation. In my previous life, all I would have to do is change the way I eat and the weight would literally fall off. I have to adjust to this new life.

I'm still taking Synthroid and Cytomel. Aside from going back into "hyper" mode with my last change, I feel alright. Just tired. But I'm attributing that to the extra 41 pounds I'm carrying. Yep 41 pounds. Oh and even though I was technically in hyperthyroidism for like 3 months, I still didn't lose any weight.

I know the older I get the harder it will be to lose. So I'm buckling down and getting my act together. Not following any particular "diet," just making better choices and watching my portions. Hopefully getting more physical activity will help my cause!

I'll keep you posted. Unless I get fatter. Then no, I'm not telling you!

Dial Vitamin Boost Giveaway

Howdy folks! Dial sent me a bottle of their new Vitamin Boost Body Wash to test out. They even sent me a few coupons to give away to you guys! Don't they ROCK?! Yeah they do, and so does this new body wash! I got the product a few weeks ago, but as is with most things that come to my house, it just sat in the living room unopened. Not because I didn't want to open it...but I've been a little short on time. Even with several snow days it seems like I just don't have enough hours in a day. Does that mean I don't wash? NOOOO. It means that this body wash just made it upstairs with me this morning! LOL I'm always skeptical about "moisturizing" body washes. I have extremely sensitive, eczema prone skin. So I really have to be careful. Even some washes that claim to be triple moisturizing dry me out and leave me wishing I had one of those cat towers to rub up against. So I finally got to test the waters with this one. Here are what this product c

Dial Baby & Kids (Giveaway)

Let me start by saying that the toddler years are fun...and a true test of faith and patience LOL! I love my little tot with everything I have in me. But every day she tests my limits in way I didn't even know were possible. I mostly laugh. She is a very spirited little girl who LOVES to be outside. I mean she will cry to go outside and sometimes all she wants to do is climb in a chair and sit on the porch and watch the cars go by. On this particular day though...(Jesus be a fence) she wanted to chase lizards, pop bubbles, shred leaves, kick her ball in the sticker bushes and throw a flower pot off the deck to see how far she could get it to go. Maybe softball is in her future, who knows LOL. That said ball ended up bursting from being repeatedly kicked in the sticker bushes... After our world wind backyard excursion, we go inside to have a snack and settle down a bit. Luckily she likes to wash her hands. I mean, she almost had that lizard! She really enjoys Dial W

Baby Magic is Here! My Birth Story

Princesses get their way. And true to form, my little princess decided that she, and only she would be in control of when she arrived. Forget about me or the doctors trying to schedule ANYTHING! **This is a long post that goes into detail. Read at your own risk.** On Sunday, July scratch that. On Saturday, July 20th, I was having cramps. They weren't too painful and were coming only about once every hour. Honestly, I thought I had gas. I had a good bit of visitors that day and told everybody that I felt like I was going to have the baby soon. I was already on bed rest and wasn't doing much. Thanks to some awesome friends, I had enough food that all I had to do was warm it and eat it. After all of the company left, I really just wanted to lie down. So I went to bed. I was awakened maybe 3 times during the night with these "cramps." The next morning I got out of bed about 10:30am (late for me) and took a shower, hoping that the heat would soothe me.
