Miss me?

Nope, I haven't been out of town, just extremely busy. I am starting work with a new company that I am really excited about--but for the time being it is a bit time consuming. Tonight is the first night I haven't worked since last Sunday. And then I almost got arrested on Thursday evening...but that is another story.

I have been feeling so discouraged lately. I work out every day--usually for at least and hour and a half. I eat right. I sleep enough. And yet, I continue to gain weight and I am exhausted constantly. The weight gain probably wouldn't bother me too much if I didn't feel like I have a closet full of clothes that are too small for me. I don't want to buy a new wardrobe in a bigger size. There is simply no logical explanation as to why clothes that fit me just fine last year don't fit me now. So I am thinking of going to the doctor to see if she has a logical explanation. It is so frustrating, I can't even tell you. I don't even feel like I can give anyone else any advice, since I obviously can't figure it out for myself.

The colder fall weather finally hit today so we had a nice comfort food lunch. Grilled cheese, soup, grapes and squash. Well, I've never thought of squash as a comfort food, really, but it came out of our garden and I wanted to eat it.

The doc should think of this, but it could be an underactive thyroid, which I believe can lead to both fatigue and weight gain. Definitely worth having her check things out for you.

How frustrating! You work out more than 99% of the people I know and try so hard to eat healthfully, so there has to be something else wrong. I'd definitely head to the doc and have them check your thyroid and hormones and all of that stuff. That makes no sense. And it's just not fair!

I agree with the other girls, you should have your thyroid checked. Also, I've watched a couple of movies recently that made me think of you. You might like them, if you haven't seen them already, and you can watch them instantly on Netflix:

'Foodmatters' and 'The Gerson Miracle'
