All Change…and I mean ALL Change
First post for YEARS on here…oh well...
I'm 29, overweight, have an under active thyroid and have just had a breast augmentation. All go, eh?! I've been trying to lose weight for goodness knows how long, but the only time I have successfully managed to do so was when I was accidentally prescribed too much thyroxine (which, as some of you will know, raised my metabolism to dangerous levels). I admittedly have fallen into the trap of comfort eating when the effects of changing thyroid med levels has just got too much for me. It has caused depression, weight gain, loss of energy etc etc etc…but it's about time I put my foot down and at least ATTEMPTED to change the way this is going myself.
I haven't weighed myself since my breast operation as I know I will have gained weight from the implants alone, but I can see that I've expanded elsewhere too. Once I can see that starting to change, I'll leap back on the scales and see where I am. For now, though, I think SW is the way to go for me.
By the way, I'm allergic to gluten, which makes things even harder…but I do think SW can be adapted for that, which is another reason I'm going for it!
I have a holiday booked to Nice next March and I'm aiming to be at least a toned size 8-10 by that point. I'm a size 12 at the moment so it might not seem like such a massive slog, but it definitely will be given my condition, and the fact I can't exercise for at least another 4 weeks because of the op.
ANYWAY, I'll take a breath now and post again later. Hello!
