a long over due update

Well, it's been a while again. Frustrated isn't even the word anymore. While Matt and I are still walking on a pretty regular basis (a little over 3 miles 4 times a week), I've cut back on how many days and I'm not tracking my food. When we were walking 3 miles, 6 days a week, and I was eating 1200 calories a day, I simply wasn't losing any weight. I felt worse and simply had to cut back to a more comfortable exercise ratio.

Quite frankly, I'm doing bare minimum for a healthy life style and simply not worrying about the weight loss. I know that I need to drop 30-40 lbs, but I'm so tired of not getting any results, no matter what I do.

I just had my 6 months follow up on my thryoid and waiting for the results. I have to say that over the last month, I've been seeing some of the symptoms return (again a little more hair loss and fatigue). We'll see. I also don't know if my doctor is using the updated scale or the old scale. (the new scale puts me in hypothryoid mode since my 20's). So I'm hoping that there's still some tweaking to be done so that I'll feel a little less tired all the time.
