just checking in

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! We did. It was busy, but lots of time spent with friends and family!

I haven't done too bad with the sweets, but regular foods are a whole other story. My Mom has been cooking ALOT, to deal with missing my dad (I think). Well, she doesn't want to keep any leftovers and my brothers aren't taking much. So, that leaves me to take them. (out of guilt, of course) I did tell her she needs to cut back because I can't keep eating Christmas dinner every day! I think I've had one glass of water in the last week. Talk about water retention!

So, I've been taking my thyroid meds regulary. And, I have a much better outlook! Thank God! I didn't want to be around me, anymore!

So, I guess I'll get back into "it" with everyone else on Jan 1! I'm up a few pounds from my initial weigh in three months ago, but it could be so much worse!

Happy New Year!

I have not been a good girl. No-sir-re-bob! Life has been getting in the way. Fortunately, it hasn't been too bad on the scale. I lost 1 pound last week and gained 1.5 this week. I'm still down from when I started which is a good thing.

It's time for another pity party. I am miserable! All I want to do is cry. I'm stressed out with work and with home. I stopped taking my thyroid medicine about a month ago. The pill bottle got moved and I just didn't care enough to worry about it. Now, I'm in a bad place. I'm short on patience. I never really had much to begin with. I'm depressed and irritable. Normally, I'm a very happy person. I cry once in a great while, but lately it's an every day thing. I can barely listen to country music right now, and it's my favorite! This is the downfall to not taking my thyroid medicine. This miserable state is how we found out I had a thyroid issue to begin with. So, I made sure I took my pill this morning because I don't like living like this. I have a very short fuse and even yelled at the husband (which isn't normal). I might threaten to stab him with a fork occasionally, but it's all in good fun. Today.....that's another story! :-)

So, I'm really hoping things level out by Christmas. I love Christmas! And I don't want to be a depressed, miserable mess that day. It's going to be a really fun day. Maddy is 2 1/2 and is really starting to get the picture. She's even been asking to "see Santa" this week. We're heading there on Saturday morning. Here's hoping she doesn't flip out once we get there!

So, right now, I'm not following my diet. I'm not back to eating bags of cookies, but I'm not limiting anything either. I did manage to eat 2 servings of fruit yesterday. That hasn't been one of my food groups of late.

And exercise? Yeah, right. I decided not to join the gym down the road. I can't even force myself to go check it out, so why spend the money? I have a dog. I just need to take her for a walk!

Until next week people! Happy dieting!
