    ugh...its going to be a long day... I woke up at 330 this morning and couldn't get back to sleep til 5am! ugh... needless to say I'm a bit tired... and wishing for some caffeine... but since I've cut out caffeine...this is the way it is... hoping the day won't be to much of a slog...

    Yay! You started a journal. Like you, my backside looks great, the front is meh. I'm at least getting the line down the middle of my stomach. Looking good though!

    Yeah got off my lazy butt and began journaling... Thanks on the looking good!

    Went out to the chiropractor today - b/c I've been dealing w/a low grade migraine since monday.. its just kinda there...on the way back to work I needed to get some gas. While getting gas I ran into a GLAMOUR FASHION DON'T! White sweatpants + Pink underwear + pregnancy = DO NOT TRY AT HOME OR IN PUBLIC outfit combination... I wanted to say something but the woman looked so miserable I figured she just didn't care any more (I remember that feeling w/ds - especially when I was on bedrest!)

    so I'm still craving WHOLE CREAM... so I ran out to whole foods and picked up some clam chowder to accompany my smoked oysters and apple for lunch... I pretty much drank the cream, and picked out and ate the clams/bacon...left the potatoes to sit... I have NFC what's w/this craving...its so bizarre!!!

    So I just heard back from the Endo at the VA... all my standard Cortisol tests are *NORMAL*... so I asked them what's next - can we look at my thyroid etc??? I got the cookie cutter response of your T4 and TSH are normal... its the *Gold Standard* for thyoid testing... y our thyroid is normal... why don't you just put the doughnut down and exercise???? or you could just be happy w/being obese WTF??? VA Endo is now fired, I told them uh...thanks for you time... you were a total waste of time... appreciate it..

    Now to figure out if I'm gonna make a trip to see Dr Kruse or if I'll try the Holtorf group now that they have a Philly office (and that's only 2hrs away - basically a day trip!)

    I've got to check the lowcarb docs, and paleo docs to see if I can find someone in the DC Metro area...

    Attachment 4851

    I've still got some work to do...but progress is being made!

    I'm finishing up the Leptin REset... I'm working on cortisol issues at the same time and I've finally seen some forward progress and I'm trying to get my workout groove back LHT and HIITs... I'm finally back down to my pre-pregnancy weight of 2 kids ago! YEAH! and in the past month I've lost an 1" off my hips and an 1" off my chest! Seems like my belly will be the last thing to go...

    Today's kinda of crazy... slogging through the day w/a migraine...and getting together w/some girlfriends I haven't seen in several years!! Dinner tonight is Brisket, Salad and sweet
    potatoes...
