So that 16 lbs I lost in the last two months was not due to my new yoga regimen or attributable as a side effect of a short term medication I was on for an infection. Nope, it's hyperthyroidism which amps up the metabolism like crazy. I've been constantly hungry and eating but still loosing weight, which if you take the night sweats, tachycardia, headaches, and shortness of breath away wouldn't be such a bad thing in my book. I dragged myself through work today since my heart has settled down thanks to the cardiologist I saw Friday. It was less than fun but I survived the utter chaos that comes from having to reschedule all the classes I missed due to my absence last week. The less than useful nurse at my doctor's office who seriously mishandled the way she communicated my mammogram results last spring is once again demonstrating her great competence in that she can't seem to get her act together in getting me scheduled for the next set of tests to determine WHY my thyroid has gone insane and thus determine a course of action for treating the problem so resolution of this problem is delayed for a few more days. Oh joy, oh bliss. I had to pick up some food for dinner and breakfast and I saw something else out of the corner of my eye. Although I am the nutrition nut in the house and rarely buy this kind of crap it looked good and I figured I'll never have metabolism like this again (since treating hyperthyroidism tends to lead to hypothyroidism and a major slowing of metabolism and excessive weight gain...can hardly wait for that) so what the hell.
I really hope I can somehow handle a yoga class soon (it's a big challenge with the shortness of breath) so I can deal with this complete frustration in a healthier way.
