Cheesy opening line – I know. I have not been posting because I have been tired and struggling – a lot. The world was feeling like a pretty sad place – a lot! I never want to be a downer blogger – so I just disappeared.
This week my doctor tested my thyroid and found that I have hypothyroidism. This makes total sense – I am always tired, almost always blue, and very overweight. No doctor had ever thought to test for it before.
So the good news is (while nothing has really changed since 3 days ago) I have a renewed sense of hope that this little, itty bitty pill will perk me up a bit and help me with my weightloss journey.
My weight loss is going pretty well. I am committed and have a totally different long view perspective this time. I will never be done with this struggle. I have been on program for almost 3 months and have lost 14.6 pounds. That is with working it with every fiber of my being. God helps me deal with temptation and has helped me deal when I have worked my hardest and gone to weigh in to see a .6 pound loss or a zero pound loss.
My school year is off to a super start and I am enjoying my job in ways I didn’t last year. God’s grace has opened up much greater working conditions – a great new office, friendly new colleagues (my old colleagues were perfectly fine and friendly), and a lot of little details being worked out.
R is loving high school. She is growing in God and makes me proud all the time.
Dave is enjoying his new job. Okay, he is ecstaticly, passionate about his new job.
I hope all of you in my blogging world are doing great – thank you so much for posting comments that said you were thinking of me and emailing me directly.
