- Wedding: June 2013
I haven’t been dx yet- but I meet the symptom list and have for a few months now. Around last winter I ate well, worked out and healthily lost 35lbs. This go around it’s much, much harder. I NEED to eat every 2-3 hours not matter what I eat -the exception is if I go overboard and eat like a whole resturant portion of a meal. I have been choosing what I think is healthy snacks; granola bars, high fiber bars, salad and cut down on sugar and fat. No matter what I do I am 1) always tired/have headache a few hours after eating thus feel too tired to work out post-work 2) can’t seem to get below 1400 calories/day to lose much weight. I am 5’0″ and about 145lbs- lost 6 lbs in 2 months and I would love to lose weight and be healthy by this summer before wedding and prior to TTC.
I have a Drs. appointment in 1 week, but it will be a while until I get tested. The other issue is I am very limited into what I can bring into work to snack on (I work at a state prison) and hope to have the Dr. write a note to allow some more “snacks” in for me- until then it’s mostly granola bars, oatmeal and vending machine food.
Anyone have any advice what what I “should” be eating, snacking on or doing? I have been drinking much more water (even that’s limited at work to 2 bottles) and taking vitamins including Vitamin D.
Open to any/all suggestions and advice!
