Last week I had some blood work done and the results came back today. Everything was great and well within range except my thyroid. It was a little low.
For years I’ve routinely had the following conversation with my endocrinologist:
Me: I’m pretty sure my thyroid levels are going to come back low.
Dr.: And what makes you say that?
Me: I’m tired a lot and I can’t seem to lose weight.
Dr.: Are you eating healthy and exercising?
Me: Well, no.
Dr.: Mm-hm. Let’s just see what the lab says.
Strangely enough, my thyroid levels were always within normal limits. Turns out if you eat large portions of junk and don’t exercise you won’t lose weight.
So imagine my delight when the nurse told me today that my thyroid is a little low! Especially now that I AM eating right (for the most part) and exercising (some). Up my thyroid meds and watch me blow past the other neighbors in the Biggest Loser competition!
