Thanks for commenting on my blog. Unfortunately, without any kind of insurance, I have to settle for having the health department doctor or nothing. I have to go to the hospital charity care program and fill out paperwork every six months now since they changed everything when the hospital took over the health department. I have been considering asking about having the medication changed over from levothyroxin to one of the natural versions like Armour even though it would probably be a bit more expensive.
I'm also pretty certain its not just my thyroid causing all of the problems. Added stress this year from changes because my son is now technically an adult, and the SSI situation is also making things a bit rough. Until the appeal is dealt with, we won't be getting his SSI income which means we will be losing over $700 a month starting next month. Looks like, besides homeschooling my daughter, I am going to have to try to find a way of bringing in an income to make up for the loss. It wouldn't be so bad but we were just cut off from food stamps a few months back when he got a raise in the SSI. I haven't worked in a number of years so I may have to do something like day labor until I can get my foot in somewhere.
I'm fairly certain stress is also aggravating the scoliosis in my neck again too which is giving me headaches and pain in my neck and shoulders. So, anyway, sorry to go on about all of this. Thanks for the encouraging words and empathy. This has been a kind of rough year.

Thanks for comenting on my blog. It's funny, but when I go nuts like that in my workouts I tend to have the best days. I enjoy the sweating and so now I have to buy heavier weights. I am using 5 lb weights and wearing 2 lb gloves. It is so awkward and funny because when I try to wipe the sweat off I tend to hit myself in the face w/those gloves and I am really trying NOT to give myself a blackeye . Oh DUH!!!

Thanks for commenting on my blog. I think you are right that at least part of our health/weight problems comes from not getting enough sleep, too much stress and other issues along with eating food that isn't healthy for us. Thanks for taking the time to visit my page. Hope you have an awesome weekend!

Thank you for reading my blog and being supportive :) I know I have it in me to continue on however it is scarey still because this is "new" territory for me, it has been 14 years, almost 15 since the last time I weighed this "little" and the keeping my diet and exercise in check is easy compared to how I feel inside. I just have to get that little voice in their to hush up and realize that I am not obese anymore I have nothing to fear by losing my armor of fat.
