Challenge Update

The weight loss challenge that I have been doing since April is going sooo well!! I can't thank Tanna enough for starting this. She is so awesome and is genuinely the sweetest person. This challenge has made me change my diet, my eating habits, what i put in my body. I've just been living a lot better and a lot healthier of a lifestyle and I LOVE IT!

To date, I have lost 10 pounds and 6 inches. I don't have my chart with me but I believe it's 6 inches. 10 pounds was my ultimate goal but now that i'm there, I'm gonna keep on going. I haven't been able to work out as hard as I would like to but i've still been getting my workouts in even if it's 10 - 20 minutes here and there. even though i have been eating right and drinking so much water that my eyeballs are floating, it's still been tough for me to get my energy up. i don't think my dosage of thyroid medicine is really helping so i feel like i am back at square one. I go back at the end of August for lab work again and i'm sure my levels are still off and hopefully she will up my dosage again. i'm so ready to feel normal again. but really, what is normal?

so there's the update!

Congrats on the weight and inches lost. I am so glad and thankful for Tanna starting this challenge, for the weight lost, much support along the way and friendships made. When you said what is normal I found this quote a while back from someone recently diagnosed with an illness and I think it fits for everyone struggling with a health issue. "I am getting back to normal well my new normal." Good luck on getting your meds right and hope you get to feeling better soon.
