Few years back, got a new doctor when the old one retired due to a heart attack. New doc began messing with the dose of my medication for my hypothyroid condition, cutting the dose because my free T3/T4
were more or less in the normal range. Unfortunately, that isn't all there is to diagnosing. Ended up putting on weight. Too much weight. Got back on my original dose, and lo and behold, the weight is coming off without much adjustment of the eating habits - although I'm mostly eating my own cooking these days. Went from around 225 down to 170 and still slowly dropping. The high school waistline is probably a thing of the past.
Found this little gem
at Wally World for about $35. Weight, body fat percent, bone density, hydration. Wonder what it would have cost for all that just 5 years ago. They tell you not to use it if you are wearing a pacemaker. I hear if you wear a tinfoil hat while you stand on the scale, you can receive transmissions from outer space.
The weather? Took this when I got into the car.
That's the outside temperature at 9:30am when I was headed in to work.
Went over to Twin1's place for burgers on the grill Sunday evening. New baby was generally the center of attention except when we were laughing about who he'd spit up on this time. He's not an over-the-shoulder and burp sort of guy. Couple of little burps instead of one big one or he'll grin at you and soak your shirt and the floor.
Here he is making faces with his father's mother. And here he is
with Grandma and cousin Kaitlyn.
