#FitReaders: Weekly Check-in

#FitReaders hosted by Geeky Bloggers Book Blog  and That’s What I’m Talking About.

Hey FitReaders! It is time for your weekly check-in (feel free to use whatever day you want to check-in–these posts will be going up on Fridays)! How are you doing this week? Did you get a day, 2 days, 3 days of exercise? Are you on track with your other health goals! I am so very proud of you for making the effort to get heart healthy and putting exercise in your life. We can do it!

Remember Check-Ins till July are done over That’s What I’m Talking About

This week I’m going to get real about my thyroid and weight struggles. So my dr and I agree that I am pretty active. I push myself, added strength training, eat 90% good, and really do everything that is supposed to equal a SLOW weightloss schedule. HOWEVER, that just wasn’t happening. For the last 6 months, I have yo-yo’d the same 6 pounds no matter what I did. So my Dr and I discussed going two more months without meds and me trying to eliminate one thing from my diet that could cause thyroid flare-ups (since we really can’t do much about my stress levels with the work project). This month that is bread—not gluten free or carbo-light but specifically bread or flour based items. Oddly that doesn’t include pasta but she said she would like me to limit those to only a couple a times a week. I can still eat corn based “bread” type things: chips, tortillas, ect. so those are my go-to when I just have to “crunch” something. So right now I am eating lots of chicken, fish, veggies, fruit, unbaked chocolate oatmeal cookies, and rice/quinoa type of casseroles (especially for breakfast–I am addicted to quinoa egg bakes). It is slightly limiting only because I am used to bread at least on a daily basis. I am getting “used” too eating around it and not hating it. Quinoa has been my savoir with that. Also the occasional corn tortilla. Everything else is in my diet: cheese, oils (though I am pretty much 95% olive oil or avocado oil these days), pastas, potatoes, etc. So it isn’t like I am lacking in choices 🙂

So my weight as we expected has gone down  4lbs but next week is the true test. So for “tracking” purposes here is my totals (from Today 200.2 back to last Friday 204.1):


  • 200.2 lbs 42.3% fat
  • 200.7 lbs
  • 201.4 lbs 43.7% fat
  • 202.1 lbs 41.7% fat
  • 203 lbs 43.0% fat
  • 202.5 lbs 41.2% fat
  • 203.4 lbs 42.0% fat
  • 204.1 lbs 42.9% fat

I am very interested to see if I keep losing (though it should slow down) or if I go back up.

  1. *HUGS* I hope that this works for you! I wonder if you’ll need to change up your diet every so often to help kick-start your metabolism. Keep us posted!

  2. Sounds like you have a good plan and it’s good that your doctor is willing to work with you before going right to medication. I’m a carb girl – love breads/pasta, etc, so I would have a really hard time giving that all up. I do try to limit how much I eat of it because I really could eat carbs all day long. Congrats on losing 4 lbs!!! Hope it continues into next week!!!

  3. Congrats on losing the 4lbs!! I need to keep better track of my food. I’ve been exercising and not over eating but still not losing as much weight as I want. Tracking will help me figure out what is going on. I hope you don’t get to stressed out this week because of work. Have a great week!!

  4. Yay, sounds like you have a plan. My Dad gave up bread , and even though in his late 70’s it really helped him get the weight off. He occasionally will have bread now, but not daily.
