    I'm getting a better handle of the food side, but I'm about to go on vacation and most likely lose that hard work. Sigh.
    Have you noticed new definition in your calves and thighs from jogging? How far do you jog? What sort of resistance training are you doing? All won't be lost on your vacation, you will retain slight muscle memory from your month long jogging. I would continue your jogging if at all possible while on vacation.

    Yeah I'm bringing my running shoes.
    I've noticed no definition; my calves are decent but my thighs have always been disgusting. I'm not jogging very far, I admit. Maybe a mile a day. I live in Florida and I'm more fatigued by the heat than physical exhaustion. Hopefully I can combat that running on the treadmill at the gym.

    Make sure the only liquid you're drinking is water-- And drink lots of it!

    Stick to complex carbohydrates, such as brown rice, lentils, beans, quinoa, oats. Don't go for white rice or bread. Avoid white flour, sugar. Avoid packaged pre-made meals. Eat tons of veggies and salads, they're nutrient-bombs. Skip the dressings, and stay light on salt.

    After you have a resistance-training session, be sure to eat something within a half an hour. Make sure it's some fast sugars, like a banana, with some fast protein and maybe some slow carbs if it's a meal rather than a post-workout snack. :)

    It sounds like you need to shock your body into producing some testosterone. Do you have a nice bike you could ride? do you have access to a pool? I would continue your jogging 3 days a week then to confuse your body throw in a swim and a bike ride once a week. At the end of every cardio session sprint for everything you have, this will shock the hell out of your body causing hormonal production. Make sure to adequately cool down for your heart health. Also you should change your distances jogging as much as possible just to keep your body guessing. I also live in Florida so you have no sympathy from me I can't wait for things to heat up, I love exercising while burning.

    I don't! I keep getting dizzy with migraines and I'm having a hard time cooling down. A couple of days ago, my face was still beat red an hour after I had stopped (this includes a cold shower too). I'm concerned about heat exhaustion at this point.
    I don't have access to a pool, and funny story, I can't ride a bike. However, there are stationary bikes at the gym I just signed up at.
    I have a thyroid problem so I was expecting some trouble but I haven't seen any results at all. Guess i need to start on this body confusion I keep hearing about.

    My face goes really red when I work hard, too. That's normal, I don't think it's heat exhaustion. Just make sure to hydrate a half an hour before you go out for a run, and you'll be just fine.

    As for your migraines-- Well, I've had pretty terrible experiences with those. But, I don't associate dizziness with them. I have to lay down for several hours, half-blinded by crazy aura-shape things, knife-pains on one side of the head behind the eye, with possible episodes of vomiting. It's terribly unpleasant.

    If you've got a thing with your thyroid, talk to your doctor for sure. Apparently iodine or kelp can be either detrimental, or helpful. Avoid the cabbage family veggies. :D (Broccoli, cauliflower, spinach, brussel sprouts, etc.)

    Minimize meat, egg, and dairy consumption.

    I've been conditioned to exercising in Florida's heat the past 18 years so its just second nature. Just make sure to wear as little breathable clothing as possible, also you could exercise when the sun goes down. As the @Word Dispenser said, make sure your adequately hydrated before bearing the heat. Jump on that stationary bike and also use the elliptical(if they have one). Hopefully you can start seeing results, are your hormone levels healthy?

    As many times as I've had my blood taken, my doctors have never mentioned a problem with low testosterone. Obviously I do have weird hormone levels as i have Hashimotos and I'm low on certain hormones.

    Well the endocrinologist would have definitely mentioned if your testosterone was amiss. How are your cortisol levels? Do you sleep at least 7 hours a night? I would consult with your doc and ask if he thinks the Hashimotos might prohibit weight-loss.

    Well thanks everyone. I will come back once I get into the hang of my new gym. I've never cared about physical health before so this is all new to me.
