Finally, some progress to report

Join me on facebook @

Those of you who have been following me know how I've been struggling to lose the weight that mysteriously crept on as a result of some sort of metabolic meltdown.

Regardless of the reasons for my crash, I wanted to report that things are FINALLY on the upswing. I've been on a testosterone, progesterone/estradiol regimen to reverse an estrogen-dominance issue. Additionally, my Cytomel dose is finally close to perfect and my doc added Armour Thyroid as well.

I've lost 10 of the 15 lbs. I gained, since I started this regimen about three months ago. I don't count calories or do much cardio. Other than an occasional metabolic type of training class to keep up my endurance and work on stability, core and balance, I've returned to powerlifting to work on adding some lean mass now that I may be hormonally better able to.

I stay active by seeking out opportunities to play whenever and wherever possible and eat only when I'm very hungry. No fasting. No calorie counting. Not a whole lot of thinking required.

Speaking of which, it's time for me to get my ass moving as the day is getting away from me already.
