Today I am apparently 26.9 pounds away from my goal of 110.
I get an email once a week from my scale. LOL Yes – I said my scale. There is in app that is wirelessly connected to my scale that keeps track of those things. I probably talked about it around the first of the year when I bought it. I like it but then again I hate it. I have stayed off of it lately, cuz I didn’t want to know. I stepped on it this weekend so I have a starting point and know how far I have to go in the next 6 months 🙂
So – In case you didn’t see my update – I was wrong in my measurements last week. I have lost 1 inch from my navel – not 5 🙂 it was an error in reading the tape measure…it has a 4 inch lead in before 0 🙁
I thought I would share some of the other supplements I take and why – I will also share a link to where you can buy them, if you’re so inclined
Today we are looking at Collagen. Life savor! I added collagen earlier this year when I started using the fasciablaster (this will be another topic and post all together). I am in a Facebook group that is all women for this tool and the discussion came up one time and I decided to add it into my routine and see if it helped my fascia.
I did my standard research and purchase. When I ran out, I really had not noticed anything major so I didn’t reorder. Then after about a week of NOT taking it daily I noticed my fingers were hurting. To be honest I had not noticed that they had stopped hurting, until they started hurting again. I have a history of hand arthritis in my family. Is this what is causing my pain? IDK – but I know the collagen keeps it away. SO I reordered it and after a week of adding it back to my Shakeology shake, my fingers quit hurting again. I can tell when I get lazy with my diet and don’t have my shake for more than just the reasons I drink that in the first place.
Also I noticed that my hair is growing back. I have lost a lot lately. Not sure if it is age or the testosterone I’m on or my Graves Disease LOL any of the above can cause hair loss…regardless I have about 1.5 inches or regrowth and I am happy.
On the topic of Graves Disease. My endocrinologist is retiring so my Doctor that handles my Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement is going to start taking care of that for me as well. AND I am beyond happy to say that he has agreed to help me get switched to a natural thyroid replacement treatment from synthetic!!! I go this week Wednesday for my blood work and then on Halloween for my appointment to talk to him. It could mean a few rough months to get it figured out, but I’m ready.
