Todays weekly weigh-in reveals an unexplained weight gain of 5lbs and confirms that I was heading for another flare-up of hypo symptoms. I had already picked up on the joint aches (elbows with me) leg cramps, carb cravings and insomnia. I've nipped these in the bud over the past week with a trial increase of 25mcg on alternate days, so I'm now on a 50/75 regime. And the symptoms have gone.
Weight changes always seem to lag behind, but I'm expecting this weight increase to have disappeared in a couple of weeks.
I'm also happy to see the start of the Samphire season as I love a little chopped and added into my morning mushrooms, celery and sun-dried tomatoes... with an egg (or two!) all cooked in olive oil goodness... yummy. Makes the hour delay after taking my T4 all worth the wait!
I know some sea-foods are high in iodine and this can be tricky for roidies, but I'm hoping that a little garnish of Samphire is ok... reminds me of happy summer visits to Norfolk.

And to celebrate midsummers day, here's a photo from my garden... have a lovely weekend!
