A loss is a loss. It has been pretty slow going around here lately with the weight loss. I guess I can't really complain because the scale is moving in the right direction. There is just something about wanting it to happen faster. With all the work I am doing in and out of the gym and the reduced calories, I would think that the pounds would come off a lot faster than they have been. It's difficult and I suppose that is why I have always quit the numerous other times I have tried to do this.
I have an appointment with my doctor in a couple weeks. I'm going to ask her to check my thyroid gland (just with her hands- you can perform an at home test, I'm just not sure what I'm looking for). If she feels like there is anything to be concerned about then I will get it tested. I'm just feeling like less than 20lbs in 4 months is not normal. When you think about it, it is 1 lbs a week, but I have been busting my butt and haven't gone out of control with my eating.
Anyway, enough gloomy talk...
