Gearing Up...Reluctantly

As another year comes to an end, despite my many weight loss attempts, I remain fat.  I am distressed by that.  I am also distressed by the thought of yet another effort at a "lifestyle change."

Isn't that an annoying phrase?  We say that because we fail at "diets,"  so it must be the label.  Change the label, change the attitude.  Ack.   I'll skip that rant; I'm just annoyed right now.  About what?

*About being fatter than I've been in decades.
*About feeling unwell and having symptoms related to my thyroid medication that the MD won't pay attention to...like hair loss, cognitive issues, tightness in my chest, tremors, and more!  (The more probably includes this 10 pound weight gain.)
*About the prospect of needing to find a new MD.
*About not being able to eat starches & gluten & sugar.  Really, wouldn't counting calories be sufficient?  Nooooo.  I have to go bigger, better, more due to health issues.  (I'm gluten intolerant  & have diabetes.  Carbs listed above raise my glucose, which requires more insulin and insulin gives me muscle cramps.  Gluten makes me break out in hideous sores.)
*About my husband acting like a jerk.

And more!  Yeah.  I'm seriously annoyed.

Most annoying is that if I began to eat healthily, I'd probably feel better and be a lot less annoyed!  Sighhhh.

Pleasant first post, isn't it?  Shrug. I need to see how a post will look and no one is likely to read this, since no one knows I'm here, yet.  I'll delete it when the blog starts proper.

It's the weigh it goes...
