I never expected there would be a day in my life when I would have to be ALLOWED to continue losing weight.
Almost 2 and a half months ago I suddely had a few weeks of feeling unnaturally tired and weak. I went to the doctors and even though they found nothing wrong in my blood tests, a hormone test revealed that my thyroid is working borderline to develop hypothyroidism. It is called hypoclinical hypothyroidism
So the doctor forbade me to continue my weight loss for two months so I could be tested while in maintenance.
I can happily say I maintained easily with only a pound gain and loss
The tests are back now and Doc gave me the ok to keep on losing weight as slowly as I was before.
It seems even losing weight slowly is hazardous to the body. My doctor explained the only reason patients are put through the potentially dangerous state of dieting is that the upsides of being slimmer beat the downsides of hormonal instabilities and diggestive problems.
I have mixed feelings about this. I never really was as fat as to have problems living or social problems. I just wanted to become healthier and prettier (and above all not to gain more weight). Now I find out I am less healthy than when I begun
I would never exchange being healthy with being skinnier... I just don't know anymore.
What would you do?
