Survived the Holidays

Well I made it through the holidays and stayed on my program. I am still not losing weight. The weight I lost with the thyroid pill came back. I ended up not continuing with the pill since it was no longer effective and my insomnia started at that time. I am still not sleeping or losing weight unfortunately. This is getting frustrating....

New Thyroid Pill

Last month my naturopath took me off of my thyroid pill. Two weeks later I got insomnia, so he put me back on a different one. The new pill works great! I still can't sleep though, which is a big bummer. I don't know if it's related to the thyroid, my age, weight loss, or stress. I've had a lot of stress lately. The lady I took care of passed away. My mom has been diagnosed with cancer, again. My daughters work situation is dangerous right now. Then we have the issue that can't be discussed. I have a lot on my brain and don't know how to turn it off. I have tried everything from herbal concoctions to prescription pills and nothing works. So, I pray. I guess that someone I love must need a lot of prayer right now.

We went riding quads over the weekend, and had a lot of fun. When I got home and on the scale it read 216.4. That means I lost 8 pounds this week!!! Pretty amazing and exciting after such slow progress I have had the last few months. This brings my weight loss total to 85 pounds. That is more than my Mary weighed. I have lost a small person at this point.
