Hello! I’m StealthNinjaWarrior...NOT! just joining NF to mostly find a fun and supportive community and this game theme seems so fun! I don’t know much of that world, but so far it seems fun! So, I’m turning 49 in a week and am the heaviest...and in the worst shape of my life! As a female, getting older and my hypothyroidism has my metabolism beyond slow! It’s a battle, even on thyroid meds. That said, not watching what I eat has been my downfall this past 6 months, so here I am to tackle the damage and then some. My big quest is to lose 15-20 lbs. ideally 20! My 2-3 smaller goals are: * Keep my carbs, protein and fats within my personal goal limits * stick to intermittent fasting and work up to 1-2 days of 24-hour fast. * workout or walk at least 4 days a week. * drink 60 oz of water a day * make time for me at least 3x/week So that’s me!
Good day and welcome! I'm Andrea, science nerd at heart (astrophysics, as you probably read) and I'm on a journey to getting into real good shape! The clichÃ© says theoretical scientists are not at all sporty or active and I'm here to disprove that! Using the scientific method! And bringing out a paper on it! Kidding. I'm just gonna work out and kick some ass. My ultimate goal is to be in damn good shape by the time I graduate (June 2015). I'm currently 138 lbs, 5"2. It's on the edge of ''official overweight'', when relying on BMI, but we all know that's a bit biased, as I work out 4-5 times a week (sometimes more, depending on whether I feel like it) and I'm on a paleo-inspired diet. I still eat dairy for example, but only from goats and sheep as I can't tolerate cow milk D: (I love mozzarella though, damn shame). I have a few minor conditions that make my progress slower, but I'm not going to let those keep me from reaching my goal. To sum them up: hypoglycemia, hypotension, hypothyroidism. You see, everything is 'hypo', except for my weight I slowly try to lose weight, but even a 1200 kcal diet (+ low-carb, high protein) and 4 days of exercise doesn't make me lose any weight, so I might see a doctor for my thyroid again, as this deeply frustrates me. I just want to lose betwee, 7-12 lbs (of fat, I'd love some nice, big round glutes), is that really too much to ask? Anyway, here I'll post what I ate/did daily and how I felt! If you have tips and tricks or know how to handle hypothyroidism, don't hesitate to post it here!! Astronomical kisses PS: Don't forget to kick ass today!
I have a low thyroid (hypothyroidism). I was hoping I could find some others that have the same issue, or even hyperthyroidism to learn about how others deal with fluctuating energy levels and/or hormone changes. How have you changed to stay healthy and what is the hardest part about dealing with your health problems?
