The struggle is real!

Anyone struggle with Hormones and Thyroid issues?? #thestruggleisreal
Age 51 was when I started not feeling like myself.   My Dr. Just kept treating my symptoms and not listening to me. I finally had enough of that and found a awesome nurse practitioner who specialized in hormones & thyroid. I knew I wasn’t losing my mind and just gaining weight out of nowhere . I was still eating low carbs and it seemed like a mystery. This practitioner tested me for everything under the sun!  Come to find out low thyroid and non-functional adrenal glands were the culprit. I started on medication for my thyroid and she put me on awesome supplements to help my adrenals.

Now six months later the weight is coming off but that’s along with doing low carbohydrates lots of vegetables, and getting proper sleep. Those are the most important things to do when you have thyroid issues. it’s also important to do weight lifting.
For woman over 50 your body really starts to change and cardio does not do what it did when you were in your 20s and 30s and even when you were in your 40s. Weightlifting however builds muscle and burns fat. So although it’s important to do some cardio for good heart health you also raise your heart rate when you are weight lifting. amazingly enough send March 27th I have lost 26 pounds. I have more energy than I used to but come to find out just from recent blood work my thyroid is still slightly low. So again we’ve adjusted my medication adjusted some supplements and I’m sure I’ll feel even better than I do now a month from now.

Also many of the supplements that I am taking ate for good gut health. ***Always remember your best health advocate. Never settle for a doctor that is not listening. Shop around there’s lots of great doctors out there!!
Here is a face by face pic. I will post when I have a body by body pic.
