Thyroid

One good test came back. My doctor called this morning. The reason I've gone from a size 00 to a size 6 was because my thyroid was off three points. They're putting me on medication for it starting today. In February, it was normal. But now it's off. He says it's easily treatable and I'd feel back to normal in no time.

Thank God. I haven't been eating /anything/ and yet still couldn't get rid of the extra poundage. I'm glad there's a medical explanation for it.

It's a shame I had to suggest he test me for it. lol But even he knew that this much weight gain - from February until now - wasn't normal. Thank you :)

No joke. It was scary, gaining that fast and not eating anything. Yikes.

great! glad to hear it. but still, i bet you don't look like a size 6, and i'm sure there are women out there who would blow up a school bus full of nuns and orphans to be a size 6.

Yeah, he pointed that out. But he also said that my numbers had changed /drastically/ since February (the last time they checked). Considering how little I eat, this is just crazy, and it all happened so fast. A size six is fine if you're muscular. But this is all fat. Well, mostly fat.

well, i'm just glad you got some good news. so he said this should level out pretty quickly? that's even better.

i discovered recently that my bmi is actually right around where it needs to be, but i gained a lot of weight since the new year began, so i'm on a regiment of daily exercise to help. i tell you, that wii fit thing is the best 90 bucks i've spent in years.

Wii fit? I don't know what that is.

it's a exercise board for the wii, which is nintendo's latest game unit. you stand on it and do all these different exercises. it's really fun, and checks your weight, etc, and responds to your movements. you have 4 different training modes you can do: yoga, muscle, balance, and aerobics. it's a total blast and i'm seeing results from using it for an hour every day.

That's good news. One puzzle/physical ailment at least you can get fixed, promptly.

Now medical science just has to catch up with the rest.....

True. I got some bad news, too. I'm just glad they can fix ONE thing.

Well, it's not /good/ that my thyroid is off, but it is good that I thought about that being a possibility so they could check it out. I'm just glad I'm not going to "keep growing" as I was, without eating anything. Scary.

Glad they figured out the cause. Thyroids are strange things.

It's kinda sad that being tested for it was my idea. lol :> I know thyroids are strange things, but THANK GOD there's a reason for this weight gain. Now I can fit into my loverly bathing suit.

Words.

Here is Belladonna, the Lady of the Rocks,
The lady of situations.
Here is the man with three staves, and here the Wheel,
And here is the one-eyed merchant, and this card
Which is blank, is something that he carries on his back,
Which I am forbidden to see. I do not find
The Hanged Man. Fear death by water.
I see crowds of people, walking round in a ring.
Thank you. If you see dear Mrs. Equitone,
Tell her I bring the horoscope myself;

One must be so careful these days.
