my favorite quote used to be "I've looked around my family, I won't ever be a size 4". And while this still may be true, I may NEVER be a 4. But it's not saying I can't be under a 14 (which is one of my next mini goals). Heck, maybe an 8 is doable though. One thing for sure, I'm not gonna stop trying til I get to where I think I should be. I'm going with "how do I feel and look" as my goal.

ummm actually.....yeah, PART of it was/is. Maybe 20 lbs or so. The other 80, those are mine....correction, those were mine. At least the ones that I've lost so far, the ones that are still hanging on, those ARE mine. Is it harder to lose weight being hypothyroid? Sure it is. Is it impossible??? NO, and I'm living proof of that. (oh, and that part about what is the doctor doing about it? Lifetime of meds for me, sometimes life throws you curveballs. You just gotta step up to the plate and swing).

BTW-Mike-great thread! I've thoroughly enjoyed reading it. We've all made the excuses at one point, it's just a matter of what we do to STOP making the excuses that counts.

When life throws you curveballs, it's up to YOU to decide whether or not you swing away or go down looking. I'm choosing to swing away.
