The Long Haul

My goal last week was to lose 3 lbs.  Well, sad to say, not only didn't I lose three pounds, I gained 1.  That's right, I gained a pound.  

After talking with the leaders of the BLC, I was told that it will take much longer for me to lose weight than the average person because of my thyroid issues. (I had part of it removed several years ago)  I felt very sad and discouraged to say the least.  But Dr. J assured me that by staying on the program I will lose the weight.  Right now I am getting in shape and that is proven by the inches lost. (27")  He told me his s-i-l had her thyroid removed and he worked with her for over a year and then all of a sudden she lost 30 lbs. in one month.  Her body finally kicked in and started working the way it was created to work. 

We only have seven weeks to go, but I am in this for the long haul. I may not win, but I will continue to eat clean and healthy, workout six days a week and make good choices for me and my family.  As for tonight, I am going to do my boot camp workout with the gang and be encouraged...

You have already won, because you've made the commitment and are sticking with the program. You are an encouragement to me!

I agree with Donna. You've been an inspiration to me too. My issue is with insulin which also makes it harder to lose weight.
