Starting in June, 2016 I went on a quest to lose around 60lbs. Most of my extra weight was due to a combination of hormone imbalance, thyroid issues and a messed-up metabolism. Then you throw in being over40, a hysterectomy and menopause starting and as my endocrinologist once said, “Your screwed!” I am on Synthroid, a medication for a underactive thyroid. My doctor did give me a metabolism booster called Qsymia to jump start my weight loss that works with exercise; many times, it is prescribed to people with thyroid issues or other metabolic failures.
Here is how I lost 20 pounds in two months without a diet! I ate what I wanted and I will eat this way for the rest of my life and enjoy it. No I’m not vegan, I am gluten free (I have to be), I don’t eat anything cow base, but I do eat goat and sheep dairy, we eat organic when possible and non-GMO. If you would like to know more check out the video. I have also boosted my metabolism by adding working out 7 days a week; I have to do this do to some genetics and also some medical issues, discussed in my video. I don’t believe anyone else under normal circumstances would have to work out like this to achieve the same results, I’m a unique situation; but then again what do I know, I’m not a doctor.
That being said, always check with your doctor before you start anything new, change your eating habits or exercise routine. Everything I did and mentioned in this video I did under a doctor’s supervision and nothing I started or changed, did I do without checking with my doctor first and I strongly suggest you do the same too.

Crystal is a good friend of mine (in real life) and even though I have been using Beach Body for years and at one point was an inspirational coach, I use Crystal as my coach for all things Beach Body. The company has grown quite a bit over the years and has so much to offer and Crystal has always been there to lend me a helping hand to find the right workout or product to fit my needs.
