This is what my life used to look like: I went to work and gave everything I had, ran errands on the way home, cooked dinner for my husband and kids and then fell asleep on the couch exhausted.
The next day, I would do it all over again. After talking to my friends and realizing they had the same type of story, I really didn’t see anything wrong or unusual about my exhaustion.
I was having memory lapses, felt like I was in a fog and did not have any energy. I pretty much just dragged myself around from day to day. I finally realized that there had to be something more.
This is when I heard my friends talk about Dr. Michele Neil-Sherwood and decided to schedule a visit. She found that I had leaky gut syndrome and my thyroid medicine was incorrect.
Dr. Michele had me change my diet a bit and also changed my thyroid medicine. Over the next six months, I noticed things were changing, but I wanted to do more. So, I scheduled another appointment which is when I was introduced to SHAPE ReClaimed with Dr. Mark Sherwood.
The program was tough at first because I am a cake and cookie eater. However, after just a few days, I noticed that I no longer wanted the sweets.
Then, the fat just started melting off of me. After just six months, I went from 190 to 136 pounds. I went from a size 18 to size 6.
I feel absolutely wonderful. I now end the day with energy left over!
The change did not happen overnight, but day by day I noticed my energy increasing as the weight came off. I used to take 12 ibuprofen a day to ease joint paint, but even then I was still hurting. I now take no ibuprofen and have no joint pain. I also had chronic bronchitis which is now completely gone!
Life is good and I am so thankful to Drs. Mark & Michele for their help!
