Finally Getting Fit

Daily report Day 18

Posted on: April 18, 2011

After yesterday complete over-indulgence I am being kind to myself.

I got out at lunch and walked some hills around downtown.  I needed that time so badly. I’ve eaten good for today with the exception of 1.. yes,  1 cookie and a dozen  jelly beans.

I found out why I’m feeling so funkity funkfunk funky.

My thyroid had died. Do you hear taps playing? I’ve heard it.

Most normal hormone  ranges are .5 to 5.0. Although they are finding out the people in the 3.0 – 5.o range are actually hypothyroid. So you could say the normal limit is 3.0.

The higher the TSH, the less active your thyroid. I had my levels drawn last week and they called me this morning with my results.


My levels are approximately 28 times the normal limit! We’ve been waiting for this to happen but it seems to have just jumped the shark. I was tested about 5 weeks ago and was just under normal.

I start meds tomorrow. 🙂

Woot for feeling better.

I’m off to order some new running shoes. None of the stores around here carry women’s shoes in wide widths. The bone-heads.
