It has been quite a long and painful journey from discovering I had PCOS to finally reversing it. So to share the story, I did a video with the help of some amazing friends that are huge supporters in helping me get the word out there. It can be done! PCOS can be reversed NATURALLY! You just have to be willing to BE THE CHANGE!!!! http://youtu.be/HcEudUdirEQ
It is so important to not only monitor your own diet but your furry friends too! I lost a dog (more like a child) a few months back, Oliver, to pancreatitis which is caused by several things including a fatty diet. My poor Ollie had lots of other contributing medical issues but I had no idea that the chicken scraps he loved were just "bad" for him. I started "P-Doggy X" in an effort to help him lose weight but his compounded medical issues ended up taking him from me. I have since adopted a new puppy. This little guy is my new angel "Deuce" and I am starting him off right. He is on the puppy version of the program which I am calling "P-Doggy 90". He doesn't get the table scraps Ollie did and I make sure to exercise him regularly. I will never forget my beloved Oliver and Baby Deuce has his own place in my heart.
BE THE CHANGE is a phrase I inherited from none other than Gandhi. I found this mug at a coffee shop a few years back and the message was exactly what I needed to hear that day. I now live by this message. Change should never be forced. Allow others to desire and make changes in their own lives. The only way to help others change is to lead by example and "Be the Change".
I can honestly say the best part about my Beachbody transformation is that I no longer have "thigh rub". I know other ladies know what I am talking about. The days of having to use baby powder if I want to wear shorts or a skirt are gone! And On a hot day, baby powder only worked for a short while. I had to keep a travel size one in my backpack purse. Remember when those were in? Well it's when I was in high school over 10 years ago. I had thigh rub problems way back then. In fact, I don't remember it ever not being an issue. I remember days when I forgot baby powder and literally had scabs from the rubbing. I know I can't be the only person to experience this. But it is a thing of the past which I refuse to re-visit. I just picked these shorts up at the thrift store for $3 and they look and fit better than any of the $50 shorts I used to buy when I was "thicker". My body and wallet are both loving my transformation. Hard work pays off. And I can kiss the inner thigh rash days goodbye. Over anything else, for this I am most grateful.
