I guess one of the positives about going on this diet is that I went to get my general physical. During that process, my doctor noticed I had a lump on my throat. After an ultrasound, the discovered that I had multiple nodules in my thyroid. I am scheduled to have a visit with a specialist. This will involve doing a biopsy on the significant sized nodules and to figure out next steps with how to remove/reduce the size of the nodules. I'm nervous and anxious but overall still trying to focus on losing weight. I'm not following the diet as strictly but still avoiding sugar and white starchy foods(rice, pasta, bread) as well as fruit. I've lost about 1 dress size and just in a holding pattern for now. I think I will get back into exercise with kids tagging along and perhaps invest in a kettlebell. Still debating about chariot with bike or signing up for the Y. We'll see what happens in the next few weeks. I'm also appreciating my days with the children alot more. I'm actually content right now and hoping to feel more at peace where we are.
