...but there's a problem when that bottom starts to weigh you down...
I'm 40 and married to my best friend and biggest fan.
In May 2009, I was diagnosed with Hypothyroid (Hashimoto's Thyroiditis) and it has been a roller coaster ever since, health-wise. In 2012, I was so sick from thyroid problems, I was pretty sure I wasn't going to wake up one day.
In the beginning of 2015, I have switched to a Natural Dessicated Thyroid medicine, got physical therapy for my back, viscous gel shots in my knees to help with the arthritis and inflammation so I can strengthen the muscles around my knees. I am feeling better than I have in about five years! I feel like I've been in a foggy coma the whole time.
As of August 31, I started seeing a holistic doctor and am feeling even better. I've managed to get off of my heartburn meds and added in some supplements that seem to be making me feel even better.
(Leaving this right here so I don't forget what it truly felt like when my thyroid was so out of whack... "It's like I feel the sickness and depression taking bites out of my soul, and I'm so numb I really can't care..." 2012)

My Goals:
I want to be a runner one day. The high and happiness I see people getting from it makes me want that too! Before I become a runner, I must become a walker, though! Onward!

My Program:
My body has been in starvation mode for so long and my metabolism is so screwed up, that it's going to be a very long road to try and right it.
