Inactivity due to the headaches did contribute to a slow increase in weight, but I was finding it more difficult to keep active beyond caring for a toddler.

In October, I did begin to notice occasional white-outs of my vision when changing position, especially if I bent forward to pick something up. I didn't think too much of it at the time at least I didn't think it was worth an extra trip to Hamilton when I had an appointment coming up in the new year. I did manage to lose about 30 lbs of the weight I had gained but with the hypothyroid condition, weight loss is not easy.
