Hello. My name is Amanda. Well, actually a lot of people have that name but I like it anyway. ;) It's always good to have a sense of humor to get through life. :) On a more serious note, I am trying to get healthy. I have had many stops and starts. One of biggest challenges is dealing with Hypothyroidism. It's not as simple as taking a pill and has taken me time to find what helps. I'm still learning. It takes me longer to lose weight than the average person. That used to bother me deeply, but it doesn't anymore. As long as I feel healthier, that is what matters. I restarted my journey on May 11th, 2017. What motivated me was I felt unhealthy and was headed in the wrong direction weight wise. So far, I have improved my blood pressure, improved my cholesterol, avoided diabetes and a little but of weight even came off! I would write more about that in a blog if I could get to the point where you make blog entry's. I only have internet on my phone and that part pops up sometimes, but not others! It is kind of frustrating but nohi g to get too flustered over. The encouragement from all of you helps so much. Don't be too shy to say hi! :) Hopefully, you are reaching your goals. Here's to a healthy summer! :)
