My biggest motivation was toÂ save my marriage, because my husband began to lose patience with my mood swings. Now, we are love birds once again, even though we have been married for more than 16 years.
Be open to new suggestions, even if you believe that they are
wrong, try them and judge only after that.
I regularly go to aerobic twice a week and swimming once a week and I really feel great.
When it comes to my diet, I wasnâ€™tÂ dedicated and I didnâ€™t comply to the recommended diet because I had cravings. For years, I have been struggling with my unhealthy eating habits. I would start with some new diet and stick to it for a day or two and then I would go back to my previous habits. I knewÂ I should eat more veggies and beans, but my cravings for sweets and fast food would always overcome what I knew. What has changed? A nutritionist from this team gave me a very good meal plan and explained what I need to do so I could avoid cravings. I was really surprised when I saw some desserts in this meal plan and her explanation was that even if I included something sweet in a moderate amount I will still lose weight and I wonâ€™t have any cravings. I was a skeptic at first, but I said to myself â€œwell honey, letâ€™s try this for a week or twoâ€, and it really worked so I continue with this meal plan and I achieved my weight goal and now I donâ€™t have cravings anymore, which is another plus. Another tip she gave me was that I needed to intake my medications for my thyroid and calcium supplementation with a pause of about 4 hours between. I really didnâ€™t know that and nobody told me that I needed to make such a big pause between using them because calciumÂ supplements interfere with proper absorption of thyroid medications, so for a long time I wasÂ incorrectly treated. It might be a little tip but itâ€™s very important for proper treating when my disease is in the matter.
