Wow, over a month since my last entry... Finally got my blood results back a couple of weeks ago and not much to report really, I was quite surprised by some of it. Had a blood pressure test when I went in too and that was absolutely fine, I was expecting it through the roof. The only thing that wasn't right with my blood was cholestorol. I didn't even know, but there's good and bad cholestorol... Apparently I've got double the good cholestorol and 150% the bad cholestorol. That's straight forward enough in theory, just less dairy. Having a quick google I can see why my good cholestorol is good, beans, whole grains, fibre, nuts.. I do have a lot of that sort of stuff.

I was weirdly disappointed that the results did come back normal for my thyroid though. There is a family history and a lot of the symptoms do hit home but suppose they are quite vague. Feeling tired - god knows how many reasons there can be for that. I wish it was my thyroid that was the problem, that'd be something I could point to and say great, I'll take the right pills and help my body do what it's supposed to do. Relying on will power and confidence doesn't seem too secure to me! But I'm back on it again... Yesterday was a good start, have a few good weeks then got a little break in May to look forward to. Booked return flights for a weekend in Hamburg for £20 so it'd be rude not to. Trouble is, with all that lovely German beer I'll probably undo whatever good I can in the next three weeks anyway.

Done my usual trick. Three good weeks and a bad weekend to override it, losing hope and patience and going backwards. Had a doctor's appointment yesterday cos I'm just so frustrated with my weight. Everyone has their ups and downs, I know that, but my weight has been so erratic for so long it's beyond anything I could consider normal.

I mean, and I told my doctor this, to put it into context, over the last 6 years I've been 25st and 15st, and now I'm somewhere around the middle. I've lost a stone in three weeks and put it back on dozens of times. There is a history of hypothyroidism and diabetes in the family. I have a history of depression too, which you could also associate the erratic weight with. Just sick of the cycle, and I've convinced myself that there's something more complex than my laziness or greed that's stopping me. My doctor more or less fobbed me off, he printed me a load of paperwork which I have read and haven't learned anything from. I've had a blood test anyway, not sure what it'll achieve. "Pull yourself together" is just about the crappest advice you can offer anyone.
