I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's (Thyroid) Disease back in March 2014. In trying Synthroid for a couple months my health symptoms grew tremendously. I began to have major chest pain, breathing problems and increased palpitations (hyper symptoms). I went to a specialist, he took me off Synthroid for 3 months to see if these "new" symptoms would go away. I have been of Synthroid and these particular symptoms seemed to go away.

However, I'm now struggling with my original circumstances: chronic yeast infections, heat sensitivity, cold intolerance, calf and achilles aches and pains (tendonitis). Quite honestly, I feel overweight and uncomfortable with my health.

A couple years ago was most likely the worst onset of all this. I was the same weight I am now, and just felt horrible. I lost 30 pounds in 4 months eating a low fat, low carb diet and exercising 5-6 times a week. I was hardcore and felt the best I had felt in my entire life, even better than when I was 18! I was strong and lean, full of energy and felt great.

MY CURRENT GOALS are to get back to feeling like I did on my 30th b-day. I want to loose weight, eat great and work out. These three things helped me feel like a bombshell! Obviously, I need to work into all this, so here we go.... get my butt in shape by X-mas!

    "At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us." (Albert Schweitzer)

    When witches go riding,
    and black cats are seen,
    the moon laughs and whispers,
    ‘tis near Halloween.

    “Never forget that you are one of a kind. Never forget that if there weren’t any need for you in all your uniqueness to be on this earth, you wouldn’t be here in the first place. And never forget, no matter how overwhelming life’s challenges and problems seem to be, that one person can make a difference in the world. In fact, it is always because of one person that all the changes in the world come about. So be that person.” (Buckminster Fuller)

    Thank you for being a great SparkFriend and for sharing this healthy living adventure with me.

    Have an absolutely Sparktacular day!
