So, I’m on a new thyroid medication- one I’ve been reading up on for the last year. I can’t tell you how excited I was when my endocrinologist recommended it. I was sure it would be the answer to all my nagging symptoms. My Dr. cautioned me about losing too much weight or feeling wired long into the night.
I don’t feel any different! It’s been about two weeks and, not only have I not lost weight, but it’s a miracle if I stay awake past 6 PM.
Actually, there is one thing that has changed. In the past I rarely ever felt hungry. I would often forget to eat lunch and spent more time snacking to stay awake than fulfilling any hunger pangs. Now, I feel hungry! Sometimes, I feel hungry before lunch! Sadly, this feels like more of a problem than a solution to my thyroid issues.
I’ve decided I need to really give the meds a chance and continue a daily workout and healthy eating. With that said, all the craziness of our month of May(hem) has left my workouts a little sporadic and my eating a little out of sorts. Yesterday, I opted to have a nice big salad for dinner and some zucchini fritters.
Here’s how it started…
In the meantime, I chopped some spring onion, garlic and fresh basil.
