My Fitness Journey
Me and fitness... . I have always admired people that can do it, can go to the gym 3, 4 times a week or more, eat healthy, so called “chicken salad” folks, don’t drink alcohol, all the fit lifestyle but I have never dreamed of becoming one.
Let’s say I never needed to when I was in my twenties, I could eat anything I wanted whenever I wanted and was still 48kg. But when you turn 30, the story completely changes and your body with it. 🧐
The breakthrough happened when I put on 10kg in a few months, just because I have discovered I had Graves disease, which is a form of thyroid insufficiency, meaning I need steroids to keep my thyroid functioning properly. I have heard before of overweight people that blamed the thyroid for their shape. It is all nonsense! I can say that, because I have this thyroid problem for 10 years now, I have been and still am under treatment and medical supervision, I have been both dieting and eating normal all these years and YOU can control your weight if you are aware of your carbs and sugars intake!
I used to run few days a week when I was back home, or just go to classes a few times, done Zumba, Capoeira, Kangoo Jumps, it was all fun, was doing it just to have more energy, I was getting close to 35 and wanted to keep a bit of left over shape from my twenties.
And then I came to London. 🤩 I used to be a size 8, and got to a size 12 in just a few years. Why? Click HERE to find out...
