Weighty Issues Part 2

It’s been a month since I went in to get blood work done for my weight. I hadn’t heard back so I figured a month was long enough and called them this morning. The results is that everything is perfect. Perfect perfect perfect. Even my cholesterol is absolutely, beautifully perfect (take that J! Ican eat all the chips I want nyah nyah)

What does this mean? Well, for most people it means that a celebration is in order. I mean, who doesn’t want a perfectly clean bill of health, right? Except for the fact that no one can figure out why the hell I gained 30 pounds in three months for no reason at all.

The doctor wants to refer me out to a few places to see if we can figure anything out. I should be getting a number for an endocrinologist and a specialist that deals with integrated medicine. That’s basically someone who will help use both medicine and natural holistic stuff. I don’t know what they can do for me but I’ll give anything a try.

 Speaking of trying, I have noticed that my weight seems to have gone down slightly. I haven’t stepped on a scale lately, but my double chin is gone, my pants are fitting better, and my fingers don’t feel like puffy sausages. The weirdest thing about this new revelation? I stopped working out a few weeks ago and counting calories. In fact if I’m honest with myself, I’ve been trying to eat more. This gives my Jr.Mint diet theory a lot more weight. I may have to go back on it.

So still, no answers, no reasons, nothing. Nothing but perfect blood and still no answers to my dilemma. Which for me, really really sucks. I want answers.

Huh....That is strange. I am glad to hear that your test results came back and looked great. Did they check your thyroid? I know when my Mom's thyroid went all nuts on her it caused a real quick weight gain and lots of puffiness. I am sure your doctors are on top of things but I just thought I would mention it. By the way your Jr. Mint diet sounds like my kind of diet :) Have a great day!

Yup, they checked my thyroid. Actually, Ihave my thyroid tested three times in 4 months *just in case* sigh. It's normal.
It IS weird, and I just can't grasp what is going on. No one seems to, from my "Fat gene" PCP to my OBGYN.

It just sucks.

The Jr. Mint diet was great! I ate one box of those candies a day a few years ago and my weight went down. I may have to start doing that again

Well, whatever it is, I hope they're able to figure it out and get it all under control. And if you can get away with eating a box of Junior Mints every day, I say go for it! ;O)

I completely empathize. Slightly different cicumstances. My doctor is looking into it and my bloodwork is due back soon. Doesn't matter how much I lose in a month, it bounds right back up overnight and takes a month to get it off again.

SRM said...

BFG, I think I might have to do a BJ's run this weekend and stock up on them.
Jenny, I'm sorry and I totally sympathize. I hope they figure out what's going on with you. It sucks, doesn't it?

I hate the mystery diagnosis. Maybe you can make some money being a research monkey. We are in the right area for it. ;)

SRM said...
