Thyroid Issues After All

Proud of my 150-pound weight loss!

Proud of my 150-pound weight loss!

I’ve been taking time to deal with some health issues recently.  It turns out I still have thyroid issues.  I was misdiagnosed years ago as Hypothyroid and only recently found out that I have Hashimoto’s, the autoimmune disease that is the cause of 90% of Hypothyroidism.  So I’ve been working with my doctor and doing research on possible causes so I can be put on the correct medication.

One change that I have made is to go dairy-free.  I love my cheese and full-fat heavy whipping cream but it has been surprisingly easier than I thought to remove these from my diet.  Hopefully I can add some things back after my gut has more time to heal.  Who knows?  Maybe this is the reason for my weight loss stalling.  I have 35 more pounds to lose ~ Fingers crossed!

One thing I have learned on my weight loss journey is to be open to change.  How are some of you dealing with dietary changes?  Do you find it easier to go cold turkey or to make gradual changes?  I’m open to suggestions!

  1. I want to be that one to jump right in but I find gradual works best. We’ve been experimenting with some grain-free recipes and gradually replacing those with the old ones. Thanks for the inspiration.

    • That’s what I am doing now with the dairy…using what I have and just not replacing it. When I went grain-free in 2013 though I did cold turkey and cleaned the pantry out and donated unopened packages. I am happy that my story inspires you!
