I recorded this weight even though it is not probably accurate. Well, that isn't true. I am still bloated. However, something I ate did not agree with me yesterday and I vomited a few times. I did not want to have a regular meal for dinner so I had tea, toast and unsweetened applesauce. I figure the bloating balanced out with that so this is probably closer to my weight. 27 lbs down and a million to go.
I am feeling positive, not suffering with what I am eating. I almost feel guilty when I eat like a normal human being. But the diet is working. I figure at my age and with a thyroid condition, three to four pounds a month is good.

Thyroiditis is tough. Yes, three or four pounds a month is about right. How are your T-3, T-4, and TSH readings from your blood work?

Erquiaga, my endocrinologist is fine with all of them. They seem about right, but instead of a TSH of 1 which he used to aim for, he kept it at 2 with 125 mg of levothyroxine. The year before, I was below 1. I think it might need upping again. I will be seeing him in late October. I believe he will be thrilled that by then I will be 30 pounds less than my last visit and not want to change anything. I just assume that at my age and with my condition, four pounds is very good. When I first joined WW at age 32- I am now 70- I was in exercise class and doing Jane Fonda every morning and running after a toddler. I never cheated and lost five pounds a month. Now, I weighed a lot less. I would be thrilled to weigh what I did when I started the program, but it is a typical loss for me. If it keeps to four, I will be more than thrilled. Thanks for the support.
