Health & Support Activity level - includes regular exercise? Oct 15 2010

that is my deficit.  But I do feel exhausted all the time (still could be thyroid) On my run last night I felt like I had taken a sleeping pill, I almost fell asleep at the end there..kinda weird.  Over the last 3 weeks, I have consistently had at least a 500 calorie deficit, and I haven't lost a single pound.

Yeah I have done that too...I never know how much I should have for a deficit, so I do 500-900 calories a day...do you think that is good?  I am not losing weight, so I am pretty bummed, cause I am eating right, and running and doing stretching daily so I should be seeing results (maybe I need to check my thyroid meds again, who knows)

I have hypothyroidism, and am on meds, but still have all the symptoms, including inability to lose weight.  my doc is kind of a pain in the butt too.  I have a serious family history of Hashimoto's and Grave's....I have all the symptoms (even though my levels are normal) my T3 is moderately high, and my thyroid is inflamed....but my doc still thinks I should just not do anything different.  I am kinda nervous cause my Grandma had docs telling her that her whole adult life, until one day she had a serious heart attack and it was later linked to her thyroid weakening her heart because of years of being imbalanced. She had it immediately removed. I have also heard of people being admitted into the Psychiatric hospital because it was messing up so bad and left unchecked.   Does anyone here have any advice?  I am really grasping at straws here.  I really don't want anything to happen to me.  My husband and I just lost our son, Charlie.  3 days before he was due, we found out he was gone.  We have another son Jack, and I don't want to leave my boys without a wife and mother...after Charlie's death, I just don't know as they could cope.  Not that I am saying I think I am going to die, I just want to take care of myself so I can take care of them. 

Anything you can do to help?

I kinda struggle with this too.  I mean I figure if I put in sedentary I can have my base metabolic rate, and then add all my exercises  (which I like to see what I am doing, and how it pays off in calories anyway)  Or if you really don't feel like adding all that (like cleaning, and playing with kids, and everyday stuff you do) then put in light activity and just log your exercises in as you do them.  If I were you I would say your a sedentary and then you can control your burn level from day to day by logging your activities.  

Hope this helps!

I have hypothyroidism, I couldn't lose weight no matter how hard I tried.  One little pill everyday and I have lost 41 pounds since then and was able to maintain healthy weight gain with my 2nd pregnancy better too.  It is worth it to get checked out.

Well guys, although I will be careful still, I am no longer losing weight...I just found out I am pregnant...(yaaayyy!) so I will be tracking calories, but not aiming for loss, so I suppose that means I won't be keeping up with the thread anymore.  Good luck everyone, and God Bless you all.  I guess I will go out with my favorite verse and a message from my heart;

"For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord.  Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future."

Jeremiah 29:11

If you don't know the Lord today, and your searching for something more, know that God loves you and is ALWAYS near, even when He feels far.  Even if you have been a part of the church your whole life, yet don't feel that assurance of salvation,  Read John 3:16--then read Romans 3:23, Romans 6:23, Romans 10:9-10.  The way to God is there in those scriptures...find a Bible Believing church, read your bible on your own, pray.  I have lived a life far from God and now by his Grace am living a life near to him...and Praise God I have found true happiness, peace, and fulfillment, that never fades.  I hope you can find Him today.

God BLESS you!

I love to dance!  I am not a great dancer but I will dance around the house all day long (curtians closed of course, haha)

I can't say I have a favorite song to dance to...I love to dance to show tunes.  I will put myself in a play in my mind and sing and dance like I am on broadway! My one year old son loves when I put on performances.  My most recent is Luck be a Lady from one of my all time favs Guys and Dolls.  But I don't discriminate.

I will even sometimes swoop up Jack (my son) and ballroom dance with him.  But when if comes to Dancing my head off like a crazy person I can't get enough of "I believe in a thing called Love" by The Darkness, and "Somebody Told me" by The Killers.  So fun! 

I love Dancing so much I bought an exersise DVD that is ALL dancing and ALL different types...LOVE IT!   The Ballet one kicks my butt, so I do it all the time.

I don't realy know how much I weigh right now.  I am still on vacation and staying with someone who hates scales.  I know I did gain a bit over vacation, but I have been buckleing down and already feel a huge difference in my stomach.  I am just going to stick with my last weight since I have no clue, and am pretty sure all the water weight I had on is gone.

week 4: 180

I, Marly, do solemnly swear that, for a period of 3 week(s), I will ......get off my fat lazt behind and excersise!  It takes 21 days to form a habit that is why I am committed to 3 weeks, after that I hope it will just stick.  

Oh yeah...and it is my birthday today and I got myself 180 pounds! A weight I can't even remember being.  Since the week of Marly Gras has just begun I hope to give myself  a lot more presents just like these before the week is over!  Wish me luck!
