For the past month, no matter how healthy I've eaten and despite 5 days/wk of exercising and solely breastfeeding, I haven't been able to lose any more baby weight. Very discouraging. Then I realized my fingernails haven't been growing at all. Hmm. I remembered that my OB still had a 'standing order' to have my TSH tested until March. I took the blood test last week and the result was 22.8. (Normal is 1.0- 4.0). Severe hypothyroidism. I've been faithful about my meds but guess we're going to have to up the dose. Until my thyroid is regulated again, it's just going to take extra effort to be Mommy and Domestic Manager.
Glad I have a reason for the lack of weight loss:-) I wouldn't want Ben & Jerry to be at fault!
