“My doctor expressed concern that my BMI was heading into an unhealthy category...I was shocked.”  

 

erin_b_blog INTERNAL.jpgIn 2010, after giving birth, I learned I had a problem with my thyroid and would forever need to take medication for the condition. It was truly a hard pill to swallow at age 32. I accepted that my body would be different having this disorder, and coped by throwing myself back into the world. I left the security of a law firm and opened my own law practice. I went back to school. I thrived as a devoted mother, wife, attorney & counselor. My schedule, however, left me little time to eat. That should help me lose weight, right?  No, that was not the case. My weight reached a high of 170 lbs.  My doctor expressed concerned that my BMI was heading into an unhealthy category and I was shocked.  My thoughts raced as I grappled with this comment. I told myself that I looked good and that I was smaller than my husband. I thought that I carried my weight well.  I quickly changed the topic with the doctor and asked about my migraines. We did not discuss losing weight any further.  When I returned home, I looked at myself in photos from a recent Mother’s Day.  I was wearing a long-sleeved dress to cover my body and my mother’s earrings to draw attention to my face and away from the rest of me.  I remember feeling special that day, but looking at the photos after my doctor’s appointment, I came to the realization that my doctor was right. I needed to lose weight.  I was facing surgery for migraines and I wanted to be in the best possible health for that.  I called Jenny Craig and made an appointment.

“I felt like the weight was melting off as my body became stronger.” 

 

I decided that I would make going to Jenny Craig a priority.  The day of my appointment, our puppy was very sick. My first thought was to cancel, but I did not.  Instead, feeling the commitment to my weight loss, I showed up with puffy eyes and barely a coherent sentence. My consultant listened as I fumbled through the appointment. She understood the stress I was under and listened as I told her how it made my body hold onto the weight. Each week, she helped me develop a schedule and set reminders to eat, eat, eat. I followed the menu plan and learned to eat 6 times a day. I even hung the word “EAT” in my kitchen.  As I was eating food that I enjoyed and learning portion control, I felt like the weight was melting off as my body became stronger.

“Finally, I had become the healthy active mother I always knew I could be.”

 

By eating more often and the right foods in the right amounts, I lost 20 lbs.* For the first time as a mother, I could work positively toward my health goals.  On Mother’s Day 2017, I wore a sleeveless dress and no earrings.  As I celebrated with my son, I proudly acknowledged my achievements: only one migraine this year and 20 lbs.* of body fat gone despite my thyroid disorder. Finally, I had become the healthy active mother I always knew I could be.
