work in progress

I want to suggest that we all realize that this is a process that takes a long time 2 get the it changes to become really authentic physical, mental and emotional changes. I'm down 3 pounds since starting Nature-throid.  I am feeling a lot of energy and I feel so positive about how I'm feeling since starting Nature-throid 6 days ago :-)

3rd day/ more energy/calcium free breakfast

This is the third day that I have taken nature-throid. I have to say, that I am feeling a little more energetic and wonder if it's not just all in my head. But if it is not ---this is very exciting! I cannot wait to see if I lose weight this week so coming up on Thursday I probably will weigh and update if there was any loss. Today my main concern was not having any calcium for 4 hours after taking the medication. Previously I was told that I can eat just about anything after an hour of taking the medicine. But I have been reading some things that indicate that you really don't want to have any calcium for the first 4 hours so I have been researching and coming up with non dairy breakfast. And another interesting thing, did you know that oranges have calcium.? I didn't! Here are some other non-dairy breakfast ideas

These pancakes are really just bananas and eggs and baking powder mixed upand then fried on a pan with cooking spray they look yummy I think I will try this tomorrow!

First dose

Around noon my son picked up my prescription. Nature - Throid 81.25 MG 
I took one at 4pm - even though the accompanying info said take in the morning on an empty stomach. 
I was like "let's get this goin'"  
It also said in bold print - 'this medication is not for weight loss'. 

well, anyway... We will see about that. 
 I'm going to my spin class :-) 
Later I will post notes on research of best time and way to take this new medication.

Not just T4!.ironically, I have eaten way too much today but I am sure that the motivation will be there with this new found hope and new drug regime. :-)
