Hey! Ugh....I have been diagnosed with Secondary Hypothyroidism. I had to go to the doctor because I noticed that I was nearly incapable to lose weight, I was tired, I was hungry always, I had body aches....after much research, I theorized that I had Hypothyroidism. After much testing, (8 oz. of blood. :L It was awesome.) they saw that my THS and other thyroid hormone levels (I forgot what it was called) were extremely low. :/ I still have to go to the endocrinologist to get the scrip, but at least now I have an answer.
I feel like a super genius for diagnosing myself, even though I just did copious amounts of research. There's no replacing a doctor, that's for sure. I may have had the theory, but I had to have the doctor diagnose it. I still feel like a genius, though, so don't crush my dreams!!!

I haven't posted in awhile. Wanna Anaz are RETARDED. Seriously, why fuck around with a serious illness? I'm so glad I'm not anorexic, I just want to say. School is going well...I'm not the worlds best student. But I have normal grades. Y' know. Sorry...I'm pretty boring today!

Hmm....alright, alright, everybody makes mistakes. Everybody falls off the damned wagon and re-gains weight...so...I'm just going to lose the weight I gained back the healthy way instead of ragging on myself and starving myself, because I certainly can't go a week without eating anything.

Grrr...I fell off the wagon for a few days. Shit, shit, shit. I gained a few pounds. Oh well...so, today I ate oatmeal for breakfast, and then went out to do some errands with my mom, including grocery shopping. All of the things I got equaled up to only $30. Then, I ate an apple and a sandwich a bit ago for lunch and then went for a walk

Wow, money goes really fast. Grrr.
Today, I went to the Country Club. I couldn't go for a walk and read my book at Starbucks like I wanted to, but I went afterwards. I went to H-E-B and spent most of the allowance I had gotten that day, just picking up normal things! Well, it's not like I have to live off of it or anything. It would've been nice to have some money, though.
Why am I watching The Notebook?
Anyways, I ate my entire day's worth of food at the Country Club and didn't eat anything else for the rest of the day! Except for a tangerine. It was delicious- I had an eggs benedict and some fruit, then waited for a couple of minutes and ate a large salad. Then, I had a plate with a lot of veggies and a bit of mashed potatoes. The whole while, I ate slowly and sipped some iced tea. Believe me, the chocolate cake was tempting me, but I got a very small brownie instead. :D

Oh, by the way, I've been an idiot. I just NOW figured out that the calories you burn stay burned. It's not as though, if I eat 100 calorie grapes, it'll cancel out my 100 calorie burning walk. (unless I already had 1500 calories that day.)

Talking about what I ate again. I AM SUCH A WOMAN SOMETIMES!

I just ate 126 grams of grapes, which is about....87 calories, and I am FULL. They were delicious grapes, too. Today, after my last entry, I went out with Kerry and we decided that, instead of Starbucks, we would go to TGI Fridays instead. I got the Jack Daniels chicken breast with shrimp, and two orders of  veggies instead of mashed potatoes. TGI Fridays actually serves reasonably good serving sizes- at least, what I got was a reasonable size. Instead of getting a dessert from the restaurant, we walked over to the Cold Stone Creamery. I drank the small yogo smoothie. By the way, what is up with all of these restaurants coming up with these psuedo-clever size names? It's SMALL, MEDIUM, LARGE, and maybe EXTRA-LARGE for the bonafide tubbos. Anyways, while we ate, we talked about the difference in serving sizes in Europe and America, and why America is so nutritionally challenged. I really think that the American serving sizes need to be scaled down a ton, especially when there's people walking around who think what they give you in restaurants is a serving size. *sigh* No WONDER we're so big! 
Anyways, I wasn't planning on going for a walk tonight, but I did. It's so fucking HOT, I'm DYING. Not literally.
Obviously.
That's why I wasn't planning on going for a walk. I was going to put it off until tomorrow, but then I realized; this is TEXAS. Never mind that, it's SUMMER. It is going to be just as hot tomorrow as it was today. So why put it off? And anyway, your metabolism get's an extra boost when it's hot, because it needs to burn energy to cool itself off.
I'm really glad that I'm losing weight in a healthy way, because I'm reading this pro-ana blog (my guilty pleasure- don't ask me why I find it so entertaining!) and her metabolism is so shot that she gained 20 pounds by eating NORMALLY for ONLY TEN DAYS! Holy crap! I am SO GLAD that's not me.
So, my plan is to wake up early tomorrow and walk to the Starbucks with my new book. (Mere Christianity- I'm an atheist, did I mention?) and eating one of my pumpkin flax granola bars and a tall soy cafe misto. Yum, yum!

Okay, so, this healthy diet and excercise plan is definitely paying off. 1,200 calories and a 100 calorie burning walk every other evening. I stepped on the scale today and the needle has dropped. Slowly, but surely. I cannot wait to drop down to the 150's.
Today, I ate a bowl of cereal with soy milk, then at about 10, I had a Baby Bell cheese, because i was beginning to get a bit hungry. Then, at about...um...12, I had a turkey wrap, a pickle, and some cheese. Today, then, I've eaten about...529 calories. In about an hour, I'm going to Starbucks with my friend and I'll have my mid day meal there. I think I'll bring a SoyJoy?

Nobody's perfect.

I realized today how atrocious my mother's eating habits are. I mean, really, I'd always known how bad they were- but honestly, I was on the verge of saying something to her. She completely skips breakfast and lunch, and even mid-day snack, and encourages me to do the same, then she eats a high calorie supper with a lot of alcohol. (3 beers.) Then she usually has a midnight snack at about 10:30 of bread and peanut butter- full calorie peanut butter, at least three tablespoons. Honestly, today, when I sat down and ate supper with her, I was disgusted. Literally, disgusted. I had a healthy meal, of course- 1/2 cup baked beans, 3 oz. of chicken breast, and 3/4 cup vegetables with an organic raspberry sorbet for dessert- and she had 6 pieces of sushi, 6 dumplings, and a bowl of some greens, plus three beers. None of this sounds particularly terrible, until you consider that a serving size of each is 1 piece of sushi, 1 dumpling, and 1 beer. So, if she had a meal of this stuff, she should have tucked into three pieces of sushi, 3 dumplings, the bowl of greens, and 1 beer if she had to, plus water. She also put quite a bit of soy sauce over the entire thing, and took large bites. All in all, it was gross. No wonder she's 200 pounds. And the poor lamb things that this is a healthy diet! Geez, I really want to talk to her but I can't because I'm only sixteen and she would take anything I say with a grain of salt. She completely ignores serving size recommendations. Oh, well. Nobody's perfect.

Wow! Now that I have starting eating more and dieting in a healthy way, I've started feeling a lot better. I don't feel gross and out of control any more- I feel like a girl with a normal problem that's trying to get it under control. I'm really excited about planning my healthy meals and snacks, and I look foward to writing in my food journal. All I have to do now is excercise more; but the only problem is, I'm embarrased. I want to jog, but I'm embarrassed to because I'm afraid somebody will see me and laugh at me. I can't go to the gym because my mom won't take me and I can't drive. I've told her we should buy a treadmill but she just laughs at me when I say it.
Oh, well. I guess I'll just have to get over myself and jog on the sidewalk.
