I want to give up!
Wednesday, November 16, 2016
I just read an article about what to do when you just can't lose weight and well my thyroid issue is the problem I'm having with not being able to reach my goal weight of 135lbs. I started this journey three years ago. I weighed 250lbs on a 5'4" frame. Now I'm around 180lbs and keep losing and gaining the same 10lbs. My question is: what is the point of having a goal if you're never going to be able to achieve it due to a medical problem? I won't give up my new healthy lifestyle of eating basically a low carb meal plan and exercising 5× a week but maybe I need to rethink my goal. And just be happy that I'm healthy and it doesn't matter what the scale says. For healthy, maybe it is different for everyone. Me with an under active thyroid maybe healthy isn't just being a size 6. But healthy as in: I'm no longer a pre diabetic. I no longer take blood pressure medicine. And I no longer take cholesterol medicine. My only disappointment is that I may never have the body on the outside that matches the health on the inside. I just need to get used to this idea. Thank you for reading!
