Its been a few weeks since I posted my weigh-in...

Today's weight = 253
Total loss = 13.8
Days till cruise = 202

Had a couple of tough weeks wherein we had a few parties. I'm not making excuses but I did enjoy myself and don't regret any food choices I made. After all, I didn't gain!

After a year of proper diet and exercise yielding no change in weight, I finally went to my doctor for blood work.
Drum roll please...
I'm hypothyroid!
Very!
Which means medication will greatly help me lose weight. Once they get me to the proper dosage. Until then, I can expect fluctuation or even noticeable GAIN

Yeah. And my current dosage makes me want to sleep from about 10am on everyday despite sleeping 8-9 hours every night.
One week left until bloodwork and new med levels (probably).
In the meantime, I've been forcing myself to run and/or take a class at the gym for at least an hour everyday, eat properly and most importantly not weigh myself. Even ran my third half marathon.
I know my weight has been all over the place for the last five weeks (from fitting in my skinny jeans to barely fitting in sweats) and I've decided that knowing a number that I currently can't affect, let alone control really isn't helpful.
On the positive side, I'm much less confused and frustrated than I was. Now, if you don't mind me, I'm off for a run, maybe a little yoga and a whole lot of trying to force myself to stay awake.
Keep fighting, y'all!

Great job Disneyhoppers and Cruisecrasher Keep up the good work!


Since I first checked in on this thread last month I am down another 7.6 pounds... and since January, I have dropped 2 pant sizes!

I just got a little lazy about recording all my food on My Fitness Pal but I have vowed to get serious again.

I'm also trying to do 2-3 walks a week consisting of at least 3 or 4 miles. I'm not running yet, never really have, but I hope I can in time.

Wow a weight loss thread for discruisers! Awesome! Well here we go I'm already about 3.5 months I'm to my pre cruise weightloss.

I'm a big guy 6'1" and before Christmas i weighed 349#. Through calorie counting assisted by my fitness pal and light exercise i am now down to 285# as of this morning.

I check weight each Sunday so that will be my next update!
