2013 is upon us, ready or not. I am ready for a new year .. new adventure and a new me. I have been working on a new me starting in 2012 and I looking forward to continue that charge through 2013.
I can say that change started for me back in March of 2012, when I was introduced to advocare through a friend. It couldn't have come at a better time in my life. I was struggling with my thyroid and being tired all the time. It seemed to be getting harder and harder to just function some days. I was just going from one nap time to the next. Cooking dinner for my family was a hugh ordeal. If it was something quick and easy then we ate out or fixed a sandwich. Thinking back to this time really makes me want to cry.
Then it all changed with one drink of Advocare's Spark drink at a ball field. I had not felt that good in over 25 years. Could I have finally found something that could help me feel this good and possibly get me through the day? Seriously? Yea right ... there is no way. Well, it was true and I am so glad that I said "yes". I am now on many of the products, to help with losing weight, feeling better & energy thru the roof.
I have lost around 30 pounds and 28 inches. With thyroid issues my weight goes up and down, so it is hard to keep a count on my pounds lost. I am down 4 pant sizes and these are feeling loose. I still have so much more to lose and I am working on that this year. I really want to get the rest of the weight off for good!!! With Advocare products is makes it easier, but it is still a lifestyle change. You can't take the products and still eat whatever you want. I have found that I need to follow a lower carb diet - that is what works best for me. I have learned that I just dont' process carbs like other people do.
But there is more to this than just losing the weight. It is feeling better from the inside out. It is hard to put into words just how much I have changed over the past six months, but I know that I have grown so much. I am at a totally different place than I have been before. I am not where I want to be but thank God I am not where I use to be.
I am going to come back here to chart my progress with weight lose and changing from the inside out. My closer walk with God - that I am so loving. I have realized that it is my purpose to help others with the things that I have gone through in my life; over-weight, thyroid cancer & hypothyroidism, being in debt and anything else that God wants to use from my life. I am by no means an expert but it is real life experiences. I just pray that God will use me and the situations from my life to help someone.
