BL2 Week 6 - half way done!

Below is the percentage of weight loss after Week 6 (this is a running total, not a weekly result).  I'm putting Heidi on probation from being our leader until she weighs in's been 3 weeks.  I'm sure she's still kicking ass after her vacation.  So this week we have Sharon, Karin, and Michelle all pushing or exceeding the 3% mark!  Way to go ladies!

I went to the endocrinologist again this week to get my hypothyroidism checked.  Then I got one of my daily emails from Everyday Health and thought I would post some symptoms.  Hopefully you are getting a thyroid panel with your yearly physical (you are getting a yearly physical right?).  Let me tell you, this shit sneaks up on you like a ninja.

If your thyroid doesn’t secrete enough hormones into your blood, you may suffer from hypothyroidism and a slowing down of bodily functions that could cause more serious complications, like high cholesterol and heart trouble.  Initial symptoms of hypothyroidism might include:

  • Fatigue
  • Weight gain
  • Cold intolerance
  • Dry or brittle hair
  • Memory problems
  • Irritability and depression
  • Higher cholesterol levels
  • Slower heart rate
  • Constipation, or sluggish bowel
Unfortunately I had all the symptoms except cold intolerance and dry hair.  Even medicated many symptoms still linger.  It took me a year between physicals to know what was wrong.  One year fine, one year the Ninja took me down and I didn't even see him coming.
