Default Newbie-Introducing myself

Hey yall! My name is Di. I never know what to say in these things, but I've been lifting for about 8 years now. I used to be a professional dancer, but was forced into a change in career due to a battle with hypothyroid that led me to a huge weight gain. Before hypothyroid took over, I wanted to compete in either fitness or figure, but never got the chance to really learn enough to decide to prep for a competition before I started to gain weight because of my thyroid. I'm finally properly medicated and fighting my way back to my real weight. I'm hoping that by 2013 I'll be able to give serious consideration to prepping for a local competition. Until then, I'm just reading and learning everything I can from the women who are already doing it.

I'm hypothyroid myself. It can be a struggle at times but once your levels are regulated you are going to feel amazing. You can do it girl!!!!

Hi Di! Welcome to SC! Ooooo a dancer! Sounds like "fitness" could be your thing! You should attend a local show (with fitness in it) and see if that is something you would be interested in.

Glad to have you here!
