We will see what the tyroid results tells. I'm happy i took the time to read this thread this evening, Thanks
My sister put on "excessive" weight because of hyperthyroidism. She went from about 110 lbs to about 180 lbs.
I put on weight from being inactive. Right now I'm 152, and the weight is all in my stomach. That's kind of a genetic curse with my family. I don't think it'll take much to lose the extra weight as long as I keep exercising. However the downfall with that, is that it makes you really hungry but I guess as long as I choose something like vegetables to eat when I get that way, it'll be okay.
I guess determination would be a good way to put it. Or just being completely unable to accept what's wrong and just learn to live with it. So I have had lots of disapointments along the way, and screeming fits over feeling this way, the start with into this illness having "suicidal" thoughts because I didn't think I could cope with living this way. Having to give up on all of your dreams. Not being able to function like any normal person could do. It's not exactly "FUN."
All I have is determination. Otherwise the lack of hope would probably slip me back into depression, and I don't want to go back down that road. Crying doesn't solve anything. I figured it was time to try to do something about it again, instead of just pouting about it. My doctor cannot tell me why, but I know there's a reason behind the Fibromyalgia. I guess that drives me with motivation and sometimes probably a bit of insanity. LOL.
Good luck with your test. Hope it turns out okay.
