Weight Loss Wednesday/Thursday/Sorry! Week #2

Hey Guys! Really sorry I haven't done a Weight Loss Wednesday post this week. I have lost weight, I am now 55.5kg / 8 stone 10 but I have now found out that my drastic weight loss in the past month hasn't been because of healthy eating or exercising. Today I found out that I have relapsed with an over-active thyroid, and that I am 'severely thyrotoxic' which I was first diagnosed with when I was 16. I didn't really realise how big the chance of it recurring was, so the fact that it has come back was a massive shock to me. I am absolutely devastated, because if you may have seen I was due to have jaw surgery in February, and they won't operate on me now because of my condition. I have been waiting for years for the jaw surgery, and for it to be cancelled is a kick in the teeth. 

One of the reasons I went to the doctors, which led to them finding out I had relapsed was because I was experiencing heart palpitations. My heart rate has been over 100 bpm so exercising and the gym is well out of the question which I am beyond annoyed about. I've been signed off university and work for the moment to try to relieve some stress, plus the fact I've been advised not to drive (also annoying). From one surgery to another, I am probably going to end up having some of my thyroid gland taken out - dreading it. 

In short, I am going to take a little break from Weight Loss Wednesdays mainly because  I can't exercise and the last thing on my mind is watching what I eat. I'll definitely be back soon though, these pills I'm on are going to try to make me fat and I will be battling against them with salads and squats.


  1. Wow, it sounds like you have had a heck of a time lately. I'm sorry to hear about your condition but it seems like you're a fighter and while it sucks you won't let it take you down or define you. So good for you! I hope that soon your health makes a turn for the better.
