Tiny Creatures......

This was posted on Face Book the other day and it caught my attention real fast!!

Lands Alive, I feel like these little things called CALORIES have invaded my closet and have mended every single piece of clothing that I own! 

I think this PIG looks pretty happy and content.....just sayin'

Calories......Calories.....Calories....= Clothes that are too little!!
Oh wait....could my issue be the fact that I have not been very consistent in taking my Thyroid medication??   For the past 40 years, I have had that dreaded thing that they call  Hypo-thryroidism. 
Not that I want either of them, but if I have to have thyroid problems, then I would prefer to have a Hyper-thyroidism!!  Most people with the hyper, are Skinny!!     Seriously....both of these thyroid problems can deliver havoc to one's body.....

I can promise you that this is not just in my head.   I can gain 5 pounds if I miss just one or two doses of this super little pill that they call synthyroid.....

And you all are probably thinking...."Well dummy, why don't you take it like you're suppose to?"

And...I have no good answer!! 

Maybe it's not the thyroid medicine at all....maybe I do have these tiny creatures called calories that keep making their way into my closet and sewing up my clothes....

Wishing you all great happiness today!!

So...That's what it is! At least I now have something to blame...those little calories! LOL

Hi Shug!

I guess I will have to go and clean my closet!! I wondered why my clothes were getting too tight!

I try very hard to stick to a healthy eating plan, but I sometimes feel like that cute little pig - I just want to lay down and Waller in the mud!

Don't forget to take your meds!

Oh, Shug, I so relate to this post! And that little calorie graphic is too cute.

When I first found out I had the dreaded HYPO thyroid I immediately asked why it couldn't have been HYPER?! Thinking I was stuck with this overweight body of mine because of Mr. Hypo I thought diets would be a waste of time and make me miserable in the process. Well, I was wrong. I got a handle on my eating and lost 35 lbs! It took me a year, but little by little the pounds came off and now I am feeling and looking better than ever.

Eat healthy and move around more and you will see a difference. Small at first, but it will come. Hang in there!!

Story of my life!!!!! I have had a weight problem since my oldest son (who is 48 now) was born... Gain--lose---Gain--lose.... Story of my life...

I'm trying REALLY hard now to lose --but as we get older, the pounds come off slower.. Tain't fair!!!!!

Good Luck.

Nezzy said... that what happens!!! Hubs tries to convince me that his clothes shrink on the hangers in there. Heeehehhe!

If only we could find a way to keep those calories away,while still enjoying all the desserts. I gain weight just by looking through a cookbook.YIKES!!!

I have hypothyroidsm and take synthroid, too!!! But if I miss taking it, I get such debilitating fatigue attacks that I can't function, and I have to stay in bed, can't go anywhere. I'm amazed that you have any energy if you are not taking the drug! But just think of the energy you would have if you took it!!! Bet I know one reason you skip it; you have to take it first thing in the morning, then not eat for an hour!

Hi Shug! Well, I know I'd be healthier if I'd watch my diet, but it's so hard to do! I think we live to eat instead of eating to live around here. So I have those little creatures in my closet too! I'm trying to be good right now because I have a doctor's appt next month and I don't want her yelling at me because my blood sugar is too far out of line. It's hard to lose when you like to eat as much as I do! If only carrots and celery sticks and a wedge of lettuce tasted as good as hamburgers and french fries or a chocolate shake!
Have a wonderful Friday!

Oh Shug! What can I say! I think we all (well most of us) have this problem with calories - keep on popping those pills!
