Well this past year has not been very good for me in terms of losing weight. I managed to maintain a fairly steady weight at about 145-148 for most of the year and exercised fairly regularly the first half of the year despite not feeling myself most of the time. I am still trying to figure out what is wrong with me (if that's the right word). I've had numerous tests done throughout the year and have yet to figure out why I am feeling so crap all the time. I am constantly tired, foggy brain, moody, etc which has affected my motivation to do what I need to do. I have had my hormones tested which appear to be "within the normal range", my regular doctor tested my TSH level and said it was "within the normal range", although I had my chiro retest with some extra stuff since I trust him to actually try to help me out instead of just washing his hands of it. I am still waiting to see if this test has an answer for me. If only they had one of those machines like in Star Trek that would analyze you and tell you what was wrong! The next step if my thyroid is fine, will be to do a micro-nutrient test to see if I'm missing out on some key nutrients. I just wish I could think clearly so I could get myself refocused on what I need to get done, both with my weight/exercise and the rest of my life! I'm hoping that I can figure it out soon and get myself back on track. I'm going to force myself to get back on Sparkpeople every day and track my food and exercise. At least that will help a little bit. Looking forward to hopefully a better year in 2014 than I had in 2013.
