I don't have too much to report....Good or bad. I guess that's good as life is just cruising along no symptoms to speak of. My hair has stopped falling out and I can see heaps of new growth which is good. I feel healthy - I would love to not need as much sleep bu at least I wake up OK and I'm am not tired all the time. My diet seems to be going OK I don't seem to feel like meat again though but I notice when I make myself eat what I am supposed to it gets easier. If I don't eat meat (bacon etc) for breakfast for a couple of days I find it hard to start doing it again and just end up with eggs only (not that bad i'm sure still protein). I have not succumbed to the ease of a bowl of cereal nor have I relented and had any bread, which is always the easy choice for breakfast. I find this not a problem. I'm sure some of the things I eat do have some sugars so I suspect my diet still has a small of sugar but I don't seem to crave it at all. I would like to try a totally Gluten free diet and absolutely no sugar at all just to see if I notice a difference. It would take a lot of work to be super vigilant checking everything especially when I eat out. My amalgam removal was booked for next week but I am heading away so I have to wait until the following week. My heart rate is also really good - worked out today on a new machine and my heart rate only got to around 160 much better than 200 so I am assuming the medication is doing it's thing. Hopefully I can get off that soon (1 tablet a day 5mg neo-mercazale). Basically program is going good I think it is well worth it and I feel good.

I am getting slack with posts.....as I am feeling better than I did 3 months ago I find myself outside of the house rather than in front of a computer screen. This is a good thing I'm thinking! I only did 2 gym days last week and I didn't go today either. I had my big weekend last week - of drinking and eating and did not suffer too badly. Although it has shattered my determination to be a strict as possible with the diet. Once I had that first sip of champagne it seems hard to say "no" now. Saturday night, Sunday, Wednesday Lunch, Saturday night just gone and again yesterday. Well I will have to end all this fun soon and get back to doing the right thing if I want to see this through. I have 3 weeks left on the program but I think as I have missed a few days they are going to add on a week which is good of them to do this for me. After I finish I will certainly be sticking to the eating program but I am not sure whether to rejoin for the Gym or whether I can do it on my own. Maybe I should keep going until all my dental revision is completed in case I start to feel awful. I'll have to see.

Well I am down to 66kgs (on my scales) which is 5.6kgs. I'm pretty happy about it as it seems to have been a long time coming - my goal is 60kgs but I might be a little ambitious. Now that my TSH is below 2 the weight does seem to be coming off. This weekend is the big weekend I have been waiting for - I am going to drink and eat on Saturday night and not worry about any rules. I am excited about it but also scared that Sunday I will regret it all! Anyway I won't know unless I go for it!
