Be An Advocate for YOURSELF ✨.

For far to long I’ve felt like something is “off”. Like, it’s just not fair to be this run down, tired every day. Not only that the amount of effort I put into my healthy eating & nutrition, dedication to all my workouts. I seriously bust my ass! Yes, I have made progress. I honestly just want my outside to match how healthy I’m feeling on the inside. .
So, for years, when I say years I mean years.... before I moved to Florida 2 years ago I had the same primary care Dr since I was 18. I’ve pretty much struggled with weight since puberty. But, here’s the thing- I’d work on myself to lose my weight in a healthy fashion. Yes, they had tested my thyroid, standard blood test ect, not that. The FRUSTRATING thing was I’d tell her here’s what I’m doing why am I not further along. Her response, “just keep doing what you’re doing, sounds like you’re doing everything right” Ahhhh! Are you kidding me?! I’m telling you something is off & you brush it off!.
.
Even my new primary care Dr, last year, when I expressed similar concerns stated, “I don’t know why you are trying to lose weight if you plan on having a baby.” Are you fucking kidding me?!.

Fast Forward to... this week.

I FINALLY HAVE SOME ANSWERS 🙌.

After meeting with my NEW alternative health Dr & Endocrinologist, and multiple viles of blood ...
.
It’s my hormones. They are so low that my body’s hormone level is functioning to that of a 50 year old woman. We also found out that I’m extremely deficient in folic acid and vitamin B (which could be the main cause of my tiredness). My thyroid levels are ok but, we are going to monitor that.
I was so HAPPY to sit & be able to have a conversation with people who were willing to listen ❤️. Here’s the thing. YOU KNOW YOUR BODY better than anyone else.

We are taking steps with making adjustments to my diet and exercise (GASP 😳 lol), adding daily B vitamin, iodine for my thyroid, and even a vitamin to help my hormones. I’m so very optimistic for my future progress!.

➡️ If it wasn’t for my coach, my Fit Fam, my Girl Gang, I’m not sure I would’ve been as confident in pushing for answers.

This morning I'm literally CRYING lol and you were asking why. (I couldn't answer over the SOBS) lol So I'll answer here... My daughter is Sooo Lucky to have a dad like you. Like, Despite how Young we were (literally kids) you did not let that stop you from being her father. Not all children can say that there dad is their hero but mine can and she Does! Because of you. So thank you @costagabriel183 so much for loving our daughter and just being the best dad ever. We Love you so much...Truly, truly appreciate it, and I'm more than sure our baby girl on the way will feel the same way. #HappyFathersDay #FathersDay2018 #StillCrying #ItsMyHormones #PregnancyBeLike #BestDadEver
