After my trip back to California I have been doing a lot of reflecting. This journey that I am on can be very frustrating. Trying to find a balance between being body positive while also trying to heal my thyroid and lose weight to reduce my symptoms is really difficult. It is so easy to step back into those negative thoughts that lead to the desire to diet and become obsessed with weight loss. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I still have a lot to work on when it comes to intuitive eating and ditching diet culture. Visiting CA was wonderful but after the trip I have found myself going back to those old thoughts. I appreciate the support I have on this platform and I will be reaching out for help while I continue to work towards my goal of being happy and healthy.
• HYPOTHYROIDISM •
It can be hard to live with. There are so many symptoms of an autoimmune disorder. And it can wreck havoc on every system in your body.
For me the main symptoms were joint pain, brittle nails, chronic skin problems, lethargy and an erratic menstrual cycle - if I don’t take the best care of myself I possibly can.
Now for those that have hypothyroidism you’ll know that it’s not as simple as just taking your thyroxine and feeling better - as doctors would have you believe. There’s a lot more to it. I struggled for a long time to control my thyroid, get my medication right and start to feel like my normal self again. But even a healthy diet and exercising didn’t really help me. I was still tired all the time and putting weight on.
Now to say that I was happy to have been introduced to our nutritional support capsules at the start of 2018 is an understatement. They have helped me start to live life again. I’ve literally thrown out every supplement I bought to try to help myself over the last few years. They’ve all been replaced by vegan whole foods in the form of a capsule 🌿
If you’re struggling with weight problems, eating right, skin problems, bowel problems etc then PLEASE get in touch with me so I can tell you more about my journey and help you start to live your best life too ❤️

The “SECRET” food to eat for fertility...(trigger post alert)
Traditions versus consistency. You ever fight for food at the dinner table when you were little? 🙋🏻♀️
I am the oldest of three and we used to have my older cousin stay with us from abroad for school (no need to pay for rent of course, just an extra pair of chopsticks at the table 🥢 - that is our version of a plate set in Chinese) 🍽
What did we “fight” about? (Idk why I’m sharing this but it’s too funny not to 🤣) So the tradition is that if you eat this orange-colored fruit in the warm dessert, you can have bigger tatas, boobs, or (aka) breasts. 🤣🤣🤣
So we ate A LOT OF IT. 🙋🏻♀️🙋🏻♀️🙋🏻♀️
True or not, it was the best part of the dessert so we all try to scoop it out for seconds and thirds before it was GONE... We weren’t really kids, but teenagers so we knew somethings were beginning to form. Alongside that my mom never stopped us, but encouraged us because ... it was a whole food cooked and had its nutrients, so no harm just benefits👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼
So was that the secret to bigger breasts? 🤷🏻♀️It was tradition and a old-wives Chinese tale that it did. So hence the craze if it was “known” to help... and that’s why you hear so many people trying to find the right “pill” for pregnancy or fertility - just like searching for the right “herb” for it as well....
The media has played this well because you hear the pill or herb that does this and that, yet it works for some and not for others...actually does a lot more harm if you ever look up drugs.com or pubmed peer-reviewed studies on how it actually depletes certain parts of you and seem like it “helps” at the same time...
If you want the #truth
, here it is:
There’s no such thing to JUST eat ONE THING for #fertility
(i.e. bone broth, 🥑, 🍍, or anything else that made it to your list) —
I’m not one to give you one thing that helps you, but all things that do. I’m here to help you find YOUR right direction. 🔛
Eat like your #thyroid #health
depends on it, because it does. I wonder how long will it take for conventional #medicine

is going to work for YOU? I am not a big supporter of #hypothyroiddiet

💥 No restrictions!!! 💥
The body views calories restriction as stress so for those of you who want to maintain optimal thyroid function, a low calorie diet is not a wise idea. Too few calories can send your body into starvation mode by running more efficiently on fewer calories. A diet of 1200 calories a day can depress your metabolism plus restricted calorie intake affects metabolism and impacts thyroid function and can potentially lead to full blown hypothyroidism.

Tired... I can see it in my face and feel it in my body. I have had very little energy and have felt like doing nothing but sit around. And yet managed to drag myself to the gym this past week and force myself to do my workouts. I haven’t been this inconsistent in over a year and I feel so guilty for this I don’t want to go back to where I used to be.... I have to remind myself that not every day is going to be great and that is okay I just have to keep pushing and chasing what I want to achieve. I CAN do this!

“It doesn't matter what size your hips are when you measure them. It's about, do you feel good and healthy in those hips?" - @ashleygraham
Yasss do you FEEL GOOD & HEALTHY!!?! My journey is not just weight loss, the workouts I do are needed for mobility reasons, stress and circulation, strength!! The healthy meal plans I follow are for my health not just a pants size. The shakes I drink are NUTRITIONAL not weight loss diet shakes. Do I want a smaller tummy and toner thighs, sure but HEALTHY AND HAPPY is my true goal! #HAES #tbt #girltribeunited
More than a happy dance... you’re helping me stay home with my only child before she does to kindergarten next year, your helping me with bills and groceries, this business is my sole income & my souls passion! So thank you!
Ok so you’ve told me 60 minutes was too long for a workout + you’ve told me 45mins was too long
+ you’ve told me 30mins was too long
Well .....what are you going to say about 20 FREAKING MINUTES?!?!
Seriously tho, if you don’t have 20 mins where you can push play at HOME then you may need to re-evaluate what’s going on! #truthbomb
🙌GIVE ME 20 minutes to change you! You won’t ever look back!! •
🙋🏻♀️Now that you’ve realized your excuses are gone, drop me an “I WANT IN” comment or message me and I’m gonna hook you up! 👯♀️
I fight with this daily. Daily I struggle to even get up and go throughout my day as if everything halfway decent. Im tired 95 percent of the time if losing weight is nonexistent in my life. And finding a good doctor... hasn't happened yet. #hypothyroidismsucks #pushingthrough #tiredofbeingtired #mylife
I've got stretch marks and loose skin. It happens when you lose a lot of weight. But I wouldn't trade it for all the fat and unhealthy habits they've replaced. Or the years of hating how I felt and looked. Of not being comfortable in my own skin.
Instead, I now have confidence I've never had before. Confidence to hike mountains and not give up when my legs are aching. Confidence to bear my arms, stretch marks, battle scars, and all. Confidence to wear clothes I wished to but never felt I could before. Confidence to be me, unapologetically.
This one's a bit of a different #transformationtuesday
post. But it's every bit as important.
Do you stick with the same kinda salads or do you change it up? .
I’m always exploring new ideas using whatever is in the fridge! 🤷🏻♀️😂😂
Guys there is Insane Deal on my fave flavor of
Liquid Waist Trainer🥥
AAAND FREE shipping tonight ONLY!! 😱🙌🏼 Want the deets??
All my life my weight has fluctuated & my body has changed. As a women who’s enjoyed the hell outta late party nights & Taco Bell 4th meal pretty much the whole end of her 20s... my body has changed. As a mother, my body has changed. Bodies change, we age, & we need to respect what our bodies have done for us before they’ll go out of their way to do more. .
If your goal is simply driven by self hate, or body dysmorphia, you won’t be happy once you reach it. So today... do something good for your body, your mind and your spirit. Get aligned & focus in! 💕
YOU WOULD NOT BELIEVE THE AMOUNT OF CALORIES IN SOME OF THE CHOICES!!
I went out to lunch at the @olivegarden
yesterday with a bunch of friends. I am so glad that I scoped out the menu before I went. We all love the really delicious food at Olive Garden, but when you're trying to lose weight, you really have to be careful what you choose. A lot of the dishes start out a 1000 calories. One of them is actually 2000!! They have quite a few that are under 700ish, but when you're adding a combination of appetizer, your meal, the breadsticks and dessert , you can easily hit 2000 - 3000 in one meal.
The only time I keep a check on my calories is when I go out to eat. I know that some vegetable dishes can be really high in calories even though it sounds healthy, because of how it's made. For instance, I wanted the parmesan crusted zucchini 🙌. Sounds pretty healthy, but it was a lot in calories. 😢 So, I opted out of it.
So yesterday I got the house salad with low-cal Italian dressing (you have to ask for it). It still tasted really good. Minestrone soup and steamed broccoli on the side. Water to drink.Then because my calories where low enough with just that, I was able to treat myself to the Chocolate Mousse Dulcini, totalling 485 calories for my whole 🍽️ meal!!! I was totally full 😊 too.
Had I not scoped-out the menu, I would have more than likely picked one of the dishes that also looked amazing, but it wouldn't have been a weight loss day for me 😢. In fact, I would have gained weight. I will have plenty of chances to eat their amazing recipes when I am 145 lbs again.
I think another good trick would be to order one of the meals that you wanted and if it's high in calories, only eat half of it and take the other half home 🏘️.
What's your favorite restaurant?

Where are my #thyroidwarrior
friends🤔? Did you know that selenium, which is found in high concentrations in Brazil nuts🌰, is crucial for thyroid health?
Studies have found that taking selenium supplements every day can decrease thyroid antibodies. Selenium is also a crucial ingredient needed to form thyroid hormones.A selenium deficiency cannot only decrease the amount of thyroid hormones that are formed, but it can exacerbate an autoimmune condition.
One simple way to boost your health without much effort.
Kristina says: “Let's chat for anyone that refuses to throw away the scale. There is 0 scale movement in these pictures. This is after I added trim to M3.
I have PCOS
I had high blood pressure
I WAS pre-diabetic I was given my clearance.
I do not work out as much as I would like maybe 4 times a month.
I choose water, no whites, no sugary drinks. I try to follow all 5, I am human 😉 . Don't give up on yourself keep going.”
Hypothyroidism is invisible to everyone, but the person going through it. This was me before I started gaining weight rapidly, my hair turned green, I was constantly fatigued, I had chronic brain-fog, and a multitude of other issues that spiraled out of control.
I felt like I fell into a deep hole, and I just couldn’t get out. It took years and persistence to get a doctor to FINALLY listen to ME!
I am working to get back to her. The girl that loved surfing, bonfires under the stars, and trying everything and anything. My journey is to find her again, and NEVER let her go.

, excessive sleep, #brainfog
and inability to function are often the most debilitating #hypothyroid
symptoms that come with #hypothyroidism
Worse, you may be already receiving #thyroid
treatment and taking medication but the symptoms just don't go away... The truth is that conventional medicine treatment has limited results for many patients because it doesn't address so many factors that actually cause thyroid dysfunction and affect your thyroid #hormones
pathway. Learn more about how to restore your thyroid hormone pathway in our free online Hypothyroidism Seminar: The Right And Wrong Ways To Heal at http://outsmartdisease.com/seminar or click the link in my Instagram profile bio @outsmartdisease

The most common reason why #thyroid
medication doesn't work for #hypothyroidism
and #autoimmune #hashimotos
patients is... a broken thyroid hormone pathway. You may even have enough thyroid #hormones
according to your blood test results but they just don't get to and into your cells. This means that you remain #hypothyroid
on a cellular level doesn't matter what brand, T4 to T3 ratio and how much thyroid medication you take.⠀
This concept is most likely new to you and you have never heard about it before. However, a broken thyroid hormone pathway is by far the biggest problem in people:⠀
▪After total and partial #thyroidectomy
▪Who have an only partially functioning thyroid and became hypothyroid due to #hashimotosdisease
▪Are on a T4-only thyroid drugs⠀
▪Don’t get much improvement of hypothyroid symptoms by taking thyroid medication of any type or feel even worse after starting thyroid #hormonereplacementtherapy
▪Who continue to suffer from multiple hypothyroid symptoms even when their thyroid lab results are in the normal reference range.⠀
