First Journal Entry!

Jan 15, 2009 - 0 comments

So I have come to the conclusion that I LOVE THIS SITE!! I never thought that I could feel this much support from complete strangers.... I just started on here, and I already feel that I am a part of a community of people that support one another.I am making fast friends, and I feel like I might have a chance at feeling better! Knowing that my struggles are not just my own is a great relief. Getting advice and feedback from someone that truly understands is invaluble.

I have a few medical issues .... I often wonder if they are all related in some way or another. My Doc insists no, however no one knows everything ... and maybe one day we will discover that there is a corolation between PCOS and Thyroid Disorders in women.

I have Polycystic Ovary Syndrome , Hashimoto's Disease, and Anxiety (OCD). I am a TAD overweight, and I am currently trying to lose the weight to better my life. I am generally a healthy eater and get alot of excersize. I have a black lab and a 7 year old daughter. They both keep me quite mobile! LOL However I need more excersize, and for my own personal benefit.

My ultimate goal is to be healthy. I am joining a boot camp this saturday at the gym!!! Yikes ... I have never done this before, and I fear that I will not be able to keep up, but to heck with it .... Im going anyways and I will try my best. After all I have a wonderful family, we are all very close and I would like to be able to participate in everything they do. I want to hike and raft and do all the things I love without feeling tired and worn down. I am hoping that pushing myself to do more will force my body to realize "this chick is going to be healthy" ... and stop resisting! My will is going to get me through. it has to, along with great determination and support from great people. I Know I will have bad days, and that there is a possibility that things wont work out as wonderfully as I am hoping ... but the negative thinking wont get me to positive place now will it! lol

Wish me luck!
