Update: I began working part time this past February in order to accomodate my class schedule for school. Things were so busy/hectic at work, that pretty much every day I was off work, work was calling me and asking me to come in. I went back to work full time in March, skipping half of my classes at school. I managed to pull a "B" in the class despite not being able to study well for the exams.

I am frustrated with my body and its refusal to lose weight. I have been diagnosed with Hypothyroidism for many years, and my TSH and T4 levels are now fine. My T3 level is still low, and I still continue to gain weight despite eating well and exercising. My MD started me on Cytomel to bring up my T3 level. I am hoping it will eventually help me to start losing again.

I began this quest because I knew if I didn't, that I would eventually completely destroy my health. I wanted to be able to spend good, quality time with my kids. At my weight, there was no way. Walking already left me out of breath.

I have been a member of SP for 2 1/2 years. I just received my copy of "The Spark" and am looking forward to reading it and getting re-inspired and re-educated. The challenge as always will be juggling family, work, school and time for myself to work out and exercise properly and eat healthy when there is so much junk at work. I am determined to be a success though and know that I can be with support from my fellow Sparkers and my family.
