I AM A HYPOTHYROID FIGHTER!!!

Hypothyroid

For those of you who don’t know what Hypothyroidism is, lemme take the dictionary terms and show you…

often called underactive thyroid or low thyroid and sometimes hypothyreosis, is a common endocrine disorder in which the thyroid gland does not produce enough thyroid hormone. It can cause a number of symptoms, such as tiredness, poor ability to tolerate cold, and weight gain. In children, hypothyroidism leads to delays in growth and intellectual development, which is called cretinism in severe cases. The diagnosis of hypothyroidism, when suspected, can be confirmed with blood tests measuring thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) and thyroxine levels.

AKA: A mega bitch to have especially as a woman! You are tired, balding, crabby, emotional, with bad cravings, and it’s tough to lose weight.

Sound familiar?

I hear far too often how women basically give up on their health or weight loss because they think “Oh, I have an under active thyroid, I won’t be able to lose weight”. THAT IS A LIE! Maybe not as quickly as the girl next door but you can, and I want to tell you it’s possible!

But instead of me writing about it, I made a video explaining how I came about hypothyroidism and how I am determined to say FU to man made medication for it!!

Now remember, I am no means a doctor or a nutritionist, I am sharing what I found works for me. If you think you have any of these symptoms, just ask for a blood test and don’t stress! If I can fight this shit, so can you!!!

I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any questions at all that I can help with!

  1. I’m glad you posted something on hypothyroid. I was diagnosed with it 10yrs ago and struggled and almost gave up trying to lose weight. Finally i looked at myself and decided I didn’t like the way I looked so I started working out and I’ve lost weight however now I seem to be in a rut. Guess I need to change my workout routine. Thanks for sharing I read all your stories or try to and try to remind myself if Vicki can do it so can I.

  2. I love the way you put this! I have been fighting hypothyroidism since 2007 and it’s not been an easy journey! It helped me alot and so glad to have you as my coach!

    • I have recently and the medication I was on wasn’t producing T3 which was where my levels were lacking, so now I am on different supplements to help with that!

      • Thanks for this inspiring blog….I’m so desperately trying to find anything to take. I am on 175 mcg…yes I know it’s a lot. Idk what to do first! Help!

          • hey, I just watched your video and I have to admit I’m intrigued. I have just gone through the mill with Dr’s and I mean through the mill. I won’t go into it but I will say that the latest reports have now said I have hardened nodules on the left of my thyroid and in the isthmus. I sound like someone who has smoked Camels for years. I don’t feel good, and basicially am sitting around waiting for these men Dr’s to get going for more clinical tests. Yes, I have been tired all my life, yes, I have gotten huge during my child bearing years, yes, I have struggled my entire life with fatigue and weight. I basically have given up in my 60’s. I don’t know what else to do. I’m so tired of the fight. I would love to get on board with your young determined attitude.

  3. Hi Vicki, I’m really glad that I found your website. I was just diagnosed a couple years ago with hypothyroidism and I’ve been having a hard time ever since trying to come up with a good routine to stick to. I want to be healthy but not interfere with the medication that I’m on because my levels drop pretty fast since my thyroid doesn’t work at all. I’ve been researching and researching and I’m struggling. Do you have any suggestions?

  4. Hi Vicki! I am thankful to find your blog. On July 5th, I had a thyroidectomy. Before having my surgery, I purchased Turbofire. I have many Beachbody products and attempted to be a coach but life happened. I am a little nervous about my life after a thyroidectomy but pray it becomes even better than my life with a thyroid. It has too. I am a fighter and want to be an example of a strong woman for my two girls. I would love to know any advice you might have. Hugs, Allison
