On September 1st, I went to my Dr. for my annual physical. Prior to this appt, I started doing research on my age and hypothyroidism. In the past year, I am ashamed to say, I’ve gained almost 20 lbs. I was unhappy with myself and hated to look at myself in pictures. But, I kept allowing pictures because I didn’t want to be THAT mom. The one that my daughter didn’t have a few years of pictures of.
