Normal photos and Being Fat and Healthy

First of all, I wanted to post the pictures that inspired my strike a pose post from a couple of days ago.  When I look at these photos, I don't feel disgusted with myself and that's a beautiful thing.  Sure I'm still bigger, but I don't stick out the way I used to...

I'm second from the left if you couldn't tell (wearing my red mittens from Oprah!)

  I'm 3rd from the right.  It was our instructors birthday (She's next to me)

Secondly, I sent hubby for a physical since he hadn't had any in a while.  His blood tests results came back and would you know that I am so much healthier!!  He only weighs about 170 lbs but his triglycerides, bad cholesterol, good cholesterol and blood pressure are all worse than mine!!  It is amazing to me that he can be 50 lbs lighter than me and have never had weight issues and I am overall healthier.  The exercise is the big part of it for sure!!

I had my follow up dr. appointment today, where they redrew blood to test my thyroid again.  She confirmed that I have ZERO of the symptoms of hyperthyroidism, so hopefully it was a lab error.
If the levels come back low again, I may need to see an endocrinologist.  I should know tomorrow or the next day.  The treatment may be radioactive iodine therapy...this would make me so unhappy.  I try to keep my life naturally...I don't know if I could deal with putting something radioactive in me....

Finally, in addressing the Malware issue.   I had this site scan my blog.  It found that the malware issue was coming from a blogger in my blog roll, but because of that I got flagged.  Since this blogger hasn't blogged in over a month, I just deleted her from the roll and now everything looks back to normal.    If it's not, please let me know!

Have a Marvelous Monday


  1. Hope your lab results come back fine.

  2. I'd say you fit in well...because...I can't tell which one is you! No one stands out in these pictures as being larger than others. :) That's a good thing. :)

  3. I think you look absolutely have made such a difference...I'm delighted to see your pictures

    What great results!
