Weight Loss/Fibroids: Update Summer 2013

Hi,

It has been a long time since I documented my journey about my fibroids. Up until last year, I was also fighting Thyroids. I was lucky that I wasn’t prescribed any medications. Last August, I had a wake-up call while I was on vacation at my mom’s in Montreal, Canada. I was at 210 lbs. I could NOT BELIEVE IT!! As I am typing this I am still in shock, because throughout my life I was always very active. I only gained some weight when I wasn’t doing anything. Even when I did, I was able to kick myself out of it real quick, and I was back to normal.

After second diagnosis with the fibroids, I just could not loose any weight, I went to the gym about 3 times a week, and I was training for 2 hours, I stopped drinking any alcohol, I almost became a vegetarian. No results: no gain, no loss, no sweat. That’s when I went back to my family doctor and they did a blood test and told me it looked like I had hypothyroidism. But she would not prescribe me anything yet because once you start taking theses types of medication, you have to take them for the rest of your life. So she made me come back every 6 months to make other blood tests. Same results.

I remember during that time, being so stressed internally, and I know it didn’t helped my case. I would not stressed about the fibroids case itself, but I would stress about anything else going on in my life. I wanted to have kids, a husband, a normal life, but never could find the right partner, I though to myself that I was getting old and that if I don’t do anything about it, then my eggs would expire. I went through some of the worse part of my life instead of not stressing.

This year after a very bad break-up I found myself in an hospital, and that is when I had my life wake-up call. I had a panic attack, and I though I was having a heart attack. They did an EKG at the doctor at first and on the first test, it wasn’t normal, so the doctor sent me to the Emergency Room. On my way there, my thoughts were changing, I told myself I could continue to stress about life and everything under the sun and die, or live and just do me and let God guide me. The second test with the technician was normal.

EKG Scare

That was my sign, I choose God.  Before I even saw the doctor, I left the hospital (I couldn’t afford the fees), I swore to myself that I would not let anybody else treat me the way I was being treated, and I started with me. I moved out of my place, I cut a lot of people out of my life, off my phone, off my gmail, etc,  and I decided to start running every morning to give my a jump start to feel better about myself. I remember, how I used to stretch in the morning and meditate waking up early just to find some inspiration before starting my day.

Planet Fitness

I registered to Planet Fitness and I was doing only 45 minutes. It really helped me out a lot. My best friend Yona is a personal trainer now, but she gave me a long time ago a simple training exercise regiment to do to stay in shape (she also always been very active, basketball player, to skateboard, to gym addict, to personal trainer). I remembered the training that she showed me back then and just did that. The first day I wanted to quit, but I kept repeating positive words to myself to keep on going.

To me, it was all about being active again, not being worried about loosing weight, and I started eating normally for most part, I drink wine and certain liquor, but I don’t overdo it. I occasionally even have some Mc Donalds to keep me happy. I am now at 165lbs and I know by next year I will be back to normal, 150lbs is my goal but already I feel much better about life and about everything. I hate running, but it helped a lot. I am going to take some kickboxing classes again this fall, and I am going back to my normal life. I don’t diet, because I believe when you diet, you do it temporarily and as soon as you go back to your regular eating habits, weight comes back. I adopted this mentality a long time ago when I saw Jennifer Aniston on tv and the interviewer asked her what type of diet is she following and she responded :  “The Common Sense Diet”, she don’t diet, she learned not to overeat. Personally, I don’t diet, I think the only diet I have done is the no alcohol diet and I have failed I guess..lol

I still have the 3 fibroids, but they haven’t grown in size since 2011, the biggest one is 3cm. That was the last result from My OB/GYN in June 2013. Also I still don’t have my flat stomach as you can see, but it will come in time, I can finally do some crunches without my scar area hurting me. I haven’t gain weight overnight, so I know I will not loose it overnight but I am getting there. I am so happy about life again, I have much more energy and I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders.

I hope this helps someone who feels discouraged, because I know I was, and also, if it wasn’t for the right people around me at that time, God only knows where I would’ve ended up.

Thank you to all of the people who helped me getting my life back. Also, thank you for reading My story and to share with me your own personal Journey, I trully appreciate it!

Bless,

Fibroids & Anemia…. Because of Stress??

Hello all,

So I have been trying to lose weight recently. I am just not in shape like I would like to. Some people when they see me think I look good, but I know personally I just don’t feel quite right. I have been trying to research around Youtube about weight loss, Fibroids and Anemia and basically I fell into a few videos, but this one in particular caught my attention.

By the way I DO NOT OWN THE RIGHTS OF THE VIDEOS, I AM SHARING WITH YOU WHAT FITS INTO MY “UNIVERSE”

Also for those who still don’t know what is a Fibroid you can check out this video that explains it

And this video is stating that Watermelon is actually full of Iron (which I didn’t even know)

That last video really REALLY opened my eyes. Tomorrow I will go to the food stand and get a full watermelon, also I will drink green tea in the morning,, drink a bottle of water a day and no fry food at all, and, I will exercise intensively for 30 minutes 3 times a day. I will do that experiment for about a month. I had stopped drinking alcohol since last december so that is good.

We will see if there is any improvement. I will show you before and after pictures to show. As for the fibroids, the first video really made sense to me. And I did let a lot of stress get to me, maybe that is why the fibroids came back, and my anemia is still present.

Stress is a number 1 “mental” killer, imagine if you had no stress, happiness everyday, I am pretty sure it could help out getting through certain sicknesses as cancers and other things.

This last video I have found and I really like is about stress management. It starts with a smile. Even when people are unhappy, don’t let it affect you. Smile and if you are spiritual like me, thank the Lord because you are able to breathe, or walk, or sing, or dance, or whatever makes you happy. As an exercise, we should all take 30 minutes and close our eyes, no sleeping, just close your eyes and think about what makes you happy, there must be at least ONE thing that made your day today. If it was staying in bed all day, then good, if it was buying groceries, then great!!

I will give other development in about a month from now to show you the result.

QUICKTRIM:Is It Worth It?

Last fall, I was about to start a diet to loose the extra pound that I gained over the year “post-myomectomy surgery“. I never bought strict diet products, and I kept seeing the advertisement for QuickTrim, sponsored and promoted by Kim & Khloe Kardashian:

Quick Trim Fast Cleanse

Before purchasing QuickTrim I had made some research and read the comments. I read mixed reviews about it, so I told myself, since I’m motivated to do something about the weight, why not try now? My doctor told me I was fine to go back to a normal life so why not. I bought that expensive juice.

4 ounces of QuickTrim mixed with 4 ounces of Water. That’s it!! I had to admit it.. it did tastes good. Like a light lemon juice. It was very light tasty and no sugar and I had a healthy breakfast to go with it (boiled eggs and broccoli).  Not even an hour later, I had energy: I don’t know if it was because of the QuickTrim but I went outside and decided to run. When it was lunch time, I took the second dose with lunch which was also healthy. I was still feeling good. I in the afternoon I took a snack (almond and apple), then took my third dose…

That’s when my pain began. I was started to feel pain from the side of my eye, which changed into a headache, which switched to a full migraine. I have a history of migraine which usually happens when I forget to eat, stress, fatigue, dehydration etc… but that day I was completely free, drank a LOT of water during the day, no stress etc. I was completely fine. Until that evening. I started to sweat, so I layed down and put a wet rag on my face. Wasnt sure If I could take and Advil or Tylenol or any medication, so I didn’t took anything. It got so bad that nausea and diarrhea kicked in… I felt as if I had the biggest hangover mixed with food poisoning.

I eventually fell asleep, woke up early the next morning, still feeling dizzy and a little bit sick. Drank more water, nausea and diarrhea had stopped by then, but I was not feeling great. Of course, continuing the QuickTrim would’ve been a real bad idea.. only 3 little doses and it got me to that point? Maybe that’s why they called it the Fast Cleanse, it did cleanse me of everything I ate that day. I decided to let that go and gave the rest of the bottle to one of my friend, after I have told her my experience with it. She wanted to try, so I told her to be careful with it.

For me, it was a waste of my money, it might work for some people but I wouldn’t recommend it to my peers. Normal exercises and healthy living is always the best. And by drinking lots of clear water, of course it will help. As the weather was getting cold, I decided to register to a gym…

Do you have any diet gone-wrong experience? Was QuickTrim good for you? Let me know!

Bless
