The easiest way to avoid regrets is to ask yourself this question, "If not now, when?" It's a powerful way to put life and our decisions about how we spend our time into perspective"
One year I started gaining in January and gained a lot of weight up through July even though I was on a diet the whole time. The weight was just zooming up. They discovered in July that my thyroid was very low and started me on treatment. My Vitamin D was even lower which a three-month stint of 50,000 units every week helped but a few months later I started gaining again and they found it even lower than before so I have been on 50,000 units a week for almost two years now. My adrenal glands were overly taxed and the doctor told me that they would have to heal for everything to settle out and blamed everything on all the gut problems and surgeries of throwing my gut health off which he said caused it all. That was almost three years ago and I haven't been able to get under 154 no matter how closely I follow a plan until now. This gives me hope that my body is healing finally. Just crossing my fingers. It's so hard to work at it with no change or to lose a little then turn around and gain the next week eating the same way and getting more movement. It makes me wonder sometimes if I am like those poor people on My 600 Pound Life who talk the whole time about being so good about sticking to their 1299 calorie diet and then showing up with a gain at the weigh-in. I wonder if I am as delusional and just not being as ON as I think I am. Since I track I don't see how that could be but I know that is what others, even the doctors that treat me think.
