    I noticed a difference right away when I started taking the Synthroid. 2 or 3 hours later, it felt like my body was "waking up." Now, after 5 days, I feel 5 years younger!
    Thank God, man that's great! Wish that would be the case for me but I'm already on thyroid, sigh...

    Thanks everybody. I wish I would have tried WW sooner.

    By the way, the "fried snickers" sounds delicious....

    I regret not having the fried Snickers. Life is to short. LOL

    llg, glad that you're feeling better. I'm trying to avoid medication myself, but you do what you gotta do and it seems to be working for you.

    TG, wonder why you're sick? Could working hard and not taking care of yourself have anything to do with it? There are viruses out there and sometimes we just get sick, but you have to wonder.

    I'm feeling good these days. I'm still eating 90% vegetarian and mostly vegan at that. My BP was 118/77 yesterday!!! w00t! Much better than the 150/90 high that it was around the holidays. I made it to the gym 4 times since Saturday, which is my goal. Tonight I'm taking a nap after work. LOL

    Hello everyone,

    It's been a long time since I posted. Homeschool, managing my home and managing my emotions has been difficult. I'm glad the holidays are over and am enjoying settling back down again.

    the kids are in T-ball and baseball which isn't too hard on the mommy.

    Weightloss is steady, albeit slow. nonetheless, i am gratefully back down by 5lbs. I need to drop alot more, but this is a start.

    Thanks for listening and reading.

    Way to go Gentle. Managing stress seems to have a connection in managing weight for some of us. Good job.

    AWESOME GENTLE!!! Whoo hoo!

    I've regained 5 of my 10 since Christmas, just stopped doing what I was doing. I may have been losing it slowly then but at least I was losing! You are doing the right thing, forward is better than backward! Hopefully I will pick up the torch again soon... xo

    Zoe, pick and that torch and pass it my way. I decided to weigh yesterday for the first time in a long time, and I've gained back the few I started to loose. At least I haven't gained a whole lot, but I'm unahppy with where I am. I'm just too lazy to go on a calorie reduction. I don't mind eating healthy and exercising, but cutting the calories to loose the weight is not something I seem willing to do at the moment.

    Howeer, I was inspired when I was trying on my dress clothes to go to the theater and nothing in my closet fit, but for one pair of pants. So I can fit into one pair of dress pants, two pairs of jeans. Thank goodness I have lots of shorts I fit into and it's Florida. Even my dress shirt was tight.

    Sigh.............at least I'm exercising, eating well and feeling good.

    Well I'm not really doing even that - sigh. I know I eat for comfort. And I have "hurties" from Dad not really recuperating from his surgery and from missing my son, also quite a bit of boredom. Stupidest STUPIDEST excuses... anyway - I had to stop wearing some of the clothes I'd started fitting into - ticks me off - I keep visualizing myself in my head doing the exercise - committing to eating right - yet, haven't translated that into action - it seems so EASY in my head! Sigh...

    So where did you go dressed up?
    edit: to the theatre. Ok, what show and was it good?

    Zoe, the show was "Jersey Boys", a musical about Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons. It was awesome. I posted a link to a youtube vid in my blog if you're interested.
