Forgive for what may be a long post to come...
I have been battling to get my levels within the normal range for 4 years. I get on one dosage, it levels out, and usually within a couple months they do bloodwork and levels are off again. Meds go up, down, up, back and forth, take this, take that, up down again... Long story short and the point to this- I WANT TO FEEL NORMAL!
Here's my story- I am hypo, with hashimoto's, and a cystic nodule on a slight goiter. My thyroid is so out of whack. Doc says it slighty works, so it makes the hormones SOMETIMES (I said lets just take it out, she laughed and said thats not the answer...)
My weight is ALL OVER THE PLACE. I love to workout- its a huge part of my life and my relationship with my husband. I go to the gym 5-6 days a week, I do cardio, I lift weights, I seriously love it! As far as diet goes, I do not drink soda, I do not eat fast fast, I cook homemade food for my family every day. I get my fruits, veggies, proteins and carbs in. We occasionally splurge and go out for fun- usually sushi or at the very least a decent place. So all in all, I think I live a decently healthy lifestyle!
Here's the problem (along with the hormone levels) I keep gaining weight. I know in my heart I am not overeating, and I am making an appointment to go back to the Doc to have levels checked, and I am positive they are off again. My husband can even notice when my levels are off. I get extremely tired, irritated, angry... but now, I am gaining weight. He hasn't said much about that, but the scale doesn't lie, and I know its not muscle from working out. I don't know what to do-- I even took the month of Feb to do a strict cardio plan and the number keeps going up.
Does anyone have any advice on what works for weight management/hormone level management or any of this?! I am so frustrated that I have to live with this for the rest of my life....
Thank you for any advice you can offer!
