All my research is at my fiance’s house and I’m at my parents all weekend. I’m doing my best. I really hope this list is really worth all the weight.
Ha. Get it? ‘Cause it’s really wait… Whatever.
Taking forever to compile. I’m doing all this research for the first time so I’m learning right along with you guys. My parents realized that something was wrong when I started my period before I hit puberty. Oh, and at nine years old, I was 105 lbs.
My sister, http://ohgollybody.tumblr.com/, ask me questions recently about what I knew. I told her what my doctor told me, at nine years old, which is that the thyroid is like a messenger. The brain sends messages to different parts of the body, but has to pass through the thyroid first, like a control room. Since my thyroid (or control room) is completely shut down, messages are being sent to other places or getting lost in translation altogether. So when my brain was telling my body to grow taller, I was gaining weight instead. It put puberty on fast track, skipping all the important beginning steps of becoming a woman. Tumblr, I almost had a hysterectomy before I even hit puberty!
Does all of this put in to perspective how hard getting fit is going to be? So what! It’s gonna take me a bit longer to compile this Do’s and Don’ts of eating because my research is extensive. I’m not copying and pasting from wikipedia and leaving it at that. I’m going to the library and checking out books, I’m searching for a specialist in adult endocrinology, I’m going to different websites and checking my references.
It may feel like I’m rewriting my senior project (hindsight, I should have done my senior project on this…), but I can promise you that you won’t get 4-6 page long, Size 12 Times New Roman font and 1” margins. It will be much more informative AND it’ll have CONJUNCTIONS!!
Keep your eyes peeled.
P.S. My sister’s awesome. Follow her. Nao.
It’s a Dr. Oz video from one of his shows explaining what the Thyroid is, how to help you find yours, what the Thyroid does (or supposed to do), and signs that you may have it.
Here’s a few songs off the playlist I listen to when we walk. You have to go to my blog to listen. Don’t worry, it’s not Auto Play.
Don’t sit still and Enjoy!
