Even though my family has been working on a healthier lifestyle for a couple of years, six months ago, we became even more fierce in our eating/exercise regime. I have not stepped on the scale in six months until now.
It has been very visibly obvious in my husband that he has been losing weight....nearly drastically. His own mother was shocked and this was a couple of months ago. My husband started at size 44 pants. He is now wearing 36 and they are falling off of him. He weighed at the doctors office 4 weeks ago at 210. This morning he weighed 188. (the bastard! LOL) Even he was shocked!
Truly cannot be more proud. It is also proof to me that the way I have been cooking and enforcing exercise IS working. Just not for me...yet.
I've neglected my thyroid issues. In six months, I've barely managed to lose 20 pounds (I have dropped a size, almost two). I know men lose faster and all that jazz. But I also know from past experience when I was on thyroid meds, I lost weight appropriately to my eating lifestyle. Without meds, I have not.
Fret not my friends, I'm not upset. It is a lesson in what I need to do. A doctor appointment is in order to get me back on thyroid meds. It is good I weighed and not further delay the obvious. *smiles*
Also, I shudder at the thought of how much I would have gained had I not made the changes I have.
Looking forward to the continuing journey to a healthier lifestyle. I have many supporters to thank. Every encouragement and suggestions have been not gone unnoticed. Now know that I am NOT alone in the everyday struggle called life.
