Sometimes it's the Small Things

There's unlikely to be anything momentous on the infertility front for several more months, while I work on getting the thyroid replacement meds regulated. So, in the meantime, I'm focusing on the small stuff.

Such as, standing on the scale this morning and having it tell me I weigh 30.6 pounds less than I did back in March. Yea! Happy, happy day. I still have a ways to go - ideally, I'd like to lose another 50 pounds before doing a transfer.

That may not be totally realistic, but I'm hoping that in a couple of weeks I'll feel up to exercising, which I haven't been doing in any sort of strenuous form because of the heart issues my thyroid had been causing.

I'm also hoping that having my thyroid removed (effectively becoming hypothyroid) also won't cause the weight to pile back on. But I think given how little I usually eat (1,300-1,400 calories per day), now that my body isn't requiring 3,000 anymore, I should still be able to keep on track.

So, for now, here's to the small stuff.

Congrats! That is awesome--I'll bet you look great! I think as long as they stay on top of your thyroid function tests and adjust your meds as needed you won't have to worry about the hypothyroidism causing weight gain. Keep up the good work!

I don't think that's a SMALL thing at all - I think it's a very, very big and good thing!

Way to go!!

Losing 30 lbs is very, very difficult. It took me 18 months to lose 16. Good for you!
