Hi everyone,
I joined several months back (I'm not sure if I wrote an introduction post or not).
But then, well...it doesn't really matter, just more of the same excuses (on my part).
I am really trying to find my motivation.
A few years back, 5 (?), shortly after receiving the diagnosis of Hypothyroid, I lost almost 40 lbs! I was determined that my diagnosis not define me, that I was stronger than this tiny butterfly shaped gland. And I was, for at least for awhile anyway, until it found a way to stop me (or so it thought!).
I was doing well, eating better, moving more.
Until, one night I had an anaphylactic reaction to sunflower seeds.
Then another food allergy (onions), thankfully not anaphylactic.
Do you know that onions are in everything!
As I said, I was eating better, primarily salads with dressing but with the seeds (now sesame and sunflower) and onion allergy, I was stymied.
To the point that I didn't know why I should even bother...I'm trying to better myself and then my own body, which was healthier than it had been in years, suddenly rebels again me.
What's up with that?
Well, anecdotally anyway, food allergies and thyroid are connected. Hmph.
But, I am undeterred.
It may have taken me awhile, but I got back up and I will get back to my original weight loss of 40 lbs (if not more).
Just reread my post (lol), not sure where I'm going with this other than to re-introduce myself and to say, I would appreciate any support while I try and find my motivation again.
Thanks for reading, if you got to the end of this, you are awesome!
