I'm horribly shy and am never good at these welcome messages, but figured I should do one anyway.
My name is Amanda and I'm an Oxycise girl.
A little history...I have a thyroid problem and gain weight even when doing everything right. Once on, the pounds set up home and refuse to move. Oxycise is the only thing that makes a difference for me.
I used to be on SparkPeople as Oxymora (in reference to Oxycise), but ended up deleting that account out of frustration. The only thyroid medicine that actually worked for me became unavailable late last year and I quickly gained close to 30 pounds while the doctor was trying to adjust the dose on another one. On top of that, I was an emotional mess from the drastic changes with my thyroid and just ended up giving up.
My health is slowly evening out again and sanity has returned...so here I am, back and ready to breathe, eat right, and take control of my life again.
I am so excited to see a group devoted to breathing exercises and am looking forward to reaching goals with all of you.
