I have reworked my model, and it’s very important to me that I am understanding this because this topic is very important for me during this time.
My weight on the scale hasn’t changed in three weeks. I am following my protocol and have honestly followed till the last few days.
For the last year I have been trying to figure out how to cure my night sweats and after trying all things natural and how to do it on my own by balancing blood sugar levels I finally saw a naturopathic doctor. It was after my consultation with him last week that I cut myself a break. We are going to work on my Hashimoto’s (thyroid disease), heal the gut in order to align the hormones.
It was after this consultation that my thoughts around food and my weight shifted. “It makes sense that my weight won’t change because of my thyroid issue.” Since Wednesday, I haven’t been 100% committed to my plan and have made exceptions because I think it doesn’t matter since I am working on healing the thyroid. This situation is similar to one I had 5 years ago, after I got thyroid help, my weight came off and I felt so much clearer. So I am waiting for the supplements/medications to take effect. In the mean time I want to stick to protocol, because it does matter, I believe proper nutrition is so healing for the body.
T: I will never be healed from this condition.
A: Obsessing about this thought. By eating flour and sugar, I create inflammation in the body which prolongs healing of the thyroid. I give into foods that aren’t on plan which create unsteady blood sugar levels which throw off hormones. The cycle continues.
R: I don’t matter to myself.
T: I am committed to taking care of myself.
A: Eat on plan, continue to work with physician, wait for blood/stool results to understand the whole picture, less intense exercise, enjoy your children and stop obsessing about this.
R: What I eat matters even if I am healing the thyroid and losing weight slowly.
