Rockin' 2014!

I have struggled with my weight since my mid-teens. At the begining of 2013 I found out that I have had undiagnosed hypothyroidism for years, probably about 8 years to be exact. This has been a blessing and a curse. It now makes sense why I could be exercising over 20 hours a week only to have my weight continue to creep up. At the end of 2013, I now feel like my thyroid medication is at the correct level. I feel human again. My depression and extreme tireness have abated. I've lost a few ...
I have struggled with my weight since my mid-teens. At the begining of 2013 I found out that I have had undiagnosed hypothyroidism for years, probably about 8 years to be exact. This has been a blessing and a curse. It now makes sense why I could be exercising over 20 hours a week only to have my weight continue to creep up. At the end of 2013, I now feel like my thyroid medication is at the correct level. I feel human again. My depression and extreme tireness have abated. I've lost a few pounds since Thanksgiving. I'm not one for resolutions, but 2014 is shaping up to be a very good year. I know that I can lose the weight for good.

From 2008-2011 I trained and raced in triathlons. This became a huge passion for me. I was at my fittest until a major setback at the end of 2011. I was pulled from the course 100miles into my first attempt at an Ironman. Dehydration got the best of me. After that race, I was emotionally devastated. I stopped training and racing completely. It was at that point that I gave in to the overwhelming sense of fatigue and tiredness that always sat in the back of my mind, I thought due to overtraining. By the end of 2012 my undiagnosed hypothyroid took over and helped me to pack on over 60lbs on my already slightly overweighy body.

So here I am again, starting another weight loss journey; this time armed with knowledge, a team of doctors, and a burning urge to get back and conquer Ironman.

My Program:
I do not believe in dieting. Healthy living is my motto! There is no 'falling off the wagon' in living healthy... we do things to nourish our body and/or soul which includes indulging now and then. I do track my calories though because otherwise I will overeat. I also exercise very frequently as it makes me feel good.

Personal Information:
I live in a (somewhat rural but close to the city) suburb of Seattle, WA. It's a great place to be if you enjoy the outdoors!

“Mother’s love is bliss, is peace, it need not be acquired, it need not be deserved. If it is there, it is like a blessing; if it is not there it is as if all the beauty had gone out of life.” —Erich Fromm
