I know I can I was on track before I got pregnant with my son now I'm 9 months postpartum at 3 wks I was back to prepregnancy weight & thats when everything went down hill 

Hyper to Hypo now on 25mcg of synthroid
Low cortisol now on Hydrocortisone, a corticosteroid
I have "Tension" headaches so they rx me Amitriptyline a tricyclic antidepressant  I think the headaches are linked to my adrenalin insuff (low cortisol)

sorry to vent I just feel like everything is against me but mind over matter I can beat this

Cardio 3-4 days a wk
2-3 classes a wk of BodyPump
Eat more protein
Be better on the weekends

Thanks for listening errr reading 

45 minutes I've gone from buring 400 cals to 500+ in those 45
It's not much but it's better than zero right 

hey, I'm pp, 12 months, and I am also on synthroid, although they bumped my dose up to 50, and I am on 5 mg cytomel, by choice. I suspect I have adrenal issues, but I take herbals to strengthen them, I still bf frequently. Like 4x during the day and 4x during the night.

I am finding it INCREDIBLY hard to lose weight, and then I lost down to 180 and bounced right back up to 200, because I got alot of stress!

Right now I am focusing on my inner health, and adding some zumba, yoga and strength training. I am also trying to get a handle on my calories again.

My weight swings wildly. I can be 5 lbs up and then 5 lbs down each day.

Hi Jen! My pcos & ppt killed my supply  some was better than none, so I stuck it out for 3 months 

I tested negative for Hashi's, just trying to figure this cortisol issue out

I'm happy to say I'm feeling better & seeing results! I havw dropped 7lbs but was heavier than I thought...wanted to think
