Candida Challenge

I saw a doctor (a real doctor!) who confirmed with a test that I have major candida overgrowth. I suspected this over 20 years ago, but didn't want to do what I had to do to fix it. Since then, I've dealt with big time fatigue, skin issues, mystery hives, IBS, muscle/joint aches, weight gain and weight holding, and I topped it off with an autoimmune disease. Lovely. I wonder how much of this could have been avoided. "sigh" Time to make it right and lose weight in the process!

It's great that you have joined SP. I wish you a healthy and wonderful journey to your goals. If you ever need encouragement I'm here for you.

If I were asked to give advice I'd say take it slow. Master some baby steps. Just as importantly, give yourself plenty of grace. Most of us don't have "perfect" days, but all the little things make a difference.

Just think - come turkey day you'll already be on your way. Come Christmas you might already be down a size. What a great feeling that will be. emoticon
By the time you ring in the new year, you'll have a healthy jump on all those who just say they want to lose weight. You'll be a winner!

I'm so glad you are here!
