Great success story! Read before and after fitness transformation stories from women and men who hit weight loss goals and got THAT BODY with training and meal prep. Find inspiration, motivation, and workout tips | Living without a thyroid.I have suffered with metabolic problems since the age of 8. Everÿ year growing larger and larger until reaching my top weight of 303lbs in October of 2013. Undergoing a total tyroidectomy in October of 2012 was supposed to make me better, my health declîned and I gained
more weight. Every day had become a struggle, I could not even shower or tie my shoes without help from my husband or daughter. The medication began to increase in dosage and quantity, and the depression began. I had begun to sleep an average of 20 hours a day, having to be reminded to complete the simplest of tasks. My life was hitting rock bottom and I saw no way out. I felt like every breath I took was a step closer to failure and death. My husband had spent years helping me to search my multiple metabolic and reproductive diseases with no answer for my symptoms and complaints. Until December 1st 2012 I was sitting on the couch after having slept for three days straight, and he found an article about how to take thyroid medication correctly. I changed nothing but the time I took my medication, what foods I ate close to medication time, and stopped eating the vegetables that interact with the absorption of thyroid medication. My weight loss journey had begun. As the days and weeks went by I could stay awake longer, my body hurt less, my moods started to improve. After a month I could once again cook dinner for my family. I gained enough energy to start to walk with my daughter and then I began to roller skate. I never thought after 25 plus years that I could roller skate my way to a happier healthier me. I did not have a goal weight because I never dreamed that a person with my medical conditions could be healthy, but as of March 18 2014 I have lost an amazing 75 lbs! I thank my husband, daughter, and god every day for my improving health. My husband asked me the other day if I was proud of my success, I am PROUD but more than that I want people to know that weight loss is possible without gastric bypass, crazy fad diets, or dangerous pills.
