new woman

i haven’t had much to write about

although the eating was on point – and the workouts were on point (5-6 days a week)
the results just weren’t there

no changes

no loss

absolutely nothing

for 2 years

yes. two years

i finally bit the bullet and decided to go to the doctor and see what’s up
i knew – for a long time that there was something just not right
my body was telling me so…and so i decided enough was enough

i went to a walk in clinic since my family doctor is pretty far away

not to dwell too much but it was possibly the worst experience of my life

not only did he suggest a weight loss clinic that specializes in a keto lifestyle (hello – i am queen of low carb and we are talking about maybe 10 pounds i am struggling with )

he also suggested a weight loss pill – you know – cause why check to see if there is an underlying issue?

i literally had to beg for blood work – and he finally relented
he then added – results come back in 24 hours. you won’t hear from me because there is nothing wrong with you

and no – i never did get a call back

oh did i mention the eye roll? yes…he rolled his eyes while i poured out my heart

not long after – i split my heel open. i mean split it wide open
we bandaged it up and called it a day
only to find myself in a different walk in clinic the next morning – too late to get stitches…which i really needed and getting a tetanus shot (did i mention i am deathly afraid of needles????)
but anyway
i saw the sign – “doctors accepting new patients”

i quickly made an appointment and voila – i finally had a doctor
a seemingly good one to boot

they took about 9 vials of blood and my results came in 2 days before my vacation
doc wanted to see me

turns out my body does not absorb B12
he actually asked me if i was vegan

this explained so very much to me

i never had energy. i would nap every chance i got
i hated working out because i was exhausted all the time – and i never got that energy rush afterwards
my skin was a mess
and my hair was falling out
my brain always foggy

everything was a chore for me…i could barely grocery shop – cleaning the house would exhaust me etc

i just thought i was lazy (seriously!)

i felt like this for years

for years

he scheduled me for B12 injections once i returned from vacation
but i decided i would take the supplements while i was away

within 2 days i felt like a new woman

i had/have an unbelievable amount of energy
i never had to take a nap
my skin cleared up almost instantly
annnnnnd
i lost weight – all while eating whatever i wanted and zero exercise

and although i have to get injections every week for 10 weeks – i am happy
beyond happy to get that shot in my arm

i can’t even describe to you what difference this has made in my life

i’m still on a high from my vacation – so i haven’t jumped into any work out
but my eating is back on point

i am excited about what results i may see now that i have 10000% more energy to get shit done

i’m back baby
new and improved!
