Fat is where it's at!

It is at least where I am at right now! You remember those 30 lbs that I bragged about losing? Well, I guess they weren't lost, just lurking, waiting for a chance to jump back onto my hips and thighs. I have gained 20 of those nasty little pounds back. Bleh!!! I so did not invite them to join me. But join me they did. Part of it is because my thyroid is screwed up again. But only part of it. The rest?? Fattening, yummy-licious foods. I have been cooking a lot more and I think that I am allergic to healthy cooking. I keep migrating to butter laden, heavy cream rich foods. MMMMMM! Pan fried chicken. Chocolate cupcakes with chocolate fudge frosting. Buttery rolls. Yeah, that is why. And I have the hardest time cooking healthy. I really don't know how to cook healthy. Well, at least not healthy and tasty, anyway.

I had plans to lose weight, but with my thyroid sluggish and my lack of sleep I just don't have the energy to even try to lose weight. I know that I would feel better if I did, but sitting on my chunky butt is so much easier. My ob/gyn wanted me to be down 40 more pounds before we try to get pregnant again and now I will have to lose 60 lbs. GULP!!! That is a lot! And that won't even make me sexy skinny, just less fat.

So fat is where I am at. With no motivation. Do they sell motivation at Tar.get??


  1. That is so tough! I have PCOS and Hashimoto's Autoimmune Thyroiditis (which is a type of hypothyroidism), so I can totally relate! I also LOVE to cook! I've lost 40lbs since October 1st and it's been a challenge, but I find that portion control (even of delicious, high fat foods) is really helping me a lot. I still make cupcakes and fried porkchops... But, in moderation, I've still been seeing the scale drop. I just hit a plateau and am doing some re-evaluating, but if you want to scope out my food journal and food musings, you can go to: lessofmichele.blogspot.com

  2. I HATE cooking healthy! (Actually I hate cooking altogether but when I do cook I want it to be something that tastes good!) Good luck with your weight loss.

  3. I also find it hard to lose weight in the winter. When it's so cold outside, all I want to do is eat comfort foods(most of which seem more fatty). There's a really good website called eatbetteramerica.com that has a ton of easy, healthy, and most important yummy recipes on it. I just printed out a recipe from it today for banana and chocolate chip muffins. Most of the recipes make simple adjustments to make the foods healthier, like using whole wheat flour and egg whites in the muffins. I get weekly emails from the site and have tried lots of the recipes from it.

  4. I hear you on the weight stuff. I have struggled with mine this past year after having Nanner. I gained 56 pounds with my pregnancy and also had gained 17 previous to being pregnant from fertility meds. So I had a lot to lose. I finally have lost almost all of it except 1-2 pounds but it has been a long road. Hang in there.P.s You have a blog award on my blog, please take a moment to check it out. ((hugs))-Megan

  5. I didn't realize you were hypo. I am too, unfortunately, so I totally understand. By the way, what are you taking? Synthroid?

  6. Yes, I take Synthroid. Or the generic anyway.


I love comments! They make me feel important.
