The old saying is true, I didn’t know what I didn’t know! I DID know that 10+ years of birth control, crazy diet plans and my “advancing age” would make achieving the health, body and life of my dreams more challenging. What I didn’t know, even after years of chasing new diet trends, was what would work for ME specifically.
A few months prior to my wedding I scheduled an appointment with my Gynecologist to get my hormone levels checked and be sure all was set for a smooth ride to mommaland. When the results were in, instead of a green light I had a diagnosis. An auto-immune disease that if left unchecked would make it nearly impossible to conceive and also held clues to my long battle with weight and energy.
As if that wasn’t bad enough, when I went back through lab tests from years past, the signs of this auto-immune disease had been there for YEARS. Not one of my doctors caught it, or even mentioned that there might be a problem.
I wasted no time in finding support with my own coach to get my condition under control (and eventually in remission!) and within a year I was at my ideal weight and loving my lifestyle.
This experience showed me, without question, that waiting until we have a diagnosis is too late. If we truly want the best for our ourselves, we have to start taking matters into our own hands.
But, having a guide along the way is also essential!
