I hesitate to even write this post because it’s too early to be sure. And I don’t really know what it means yet, but if it is true, it’s big, as in B.I.G.
Let’s rewind… After the Halloween Candy Fiasco of 2009 I stopped eating sugar. Really, it’s true. It’s been over a year without sugar because any sugar, even the tiniest bit would cause instant weight gain. And not just a little weight. One half piece of pie this summer and I gained 5 lbs! Then the only way to get the weight off is to go cold turkey without any sugar. So I learned to live without it.
Perhaps sugar issues are related to thyroid or Candida, but I have virtually no control over sugar. Once I start eating sugar, it’s a bottomless pit of desire. As you can understand and probably relate, my relationship with sugar is big which is why my latest discovery might be nothing short of a miracle.
Two months ago, I started taking a new natural desiccated thyroid medicine I ordered specially from a compound pharmacy. Within a month of taking the compound, I lost the 6-8 lbs I had mysteriously gained in the last six months, doing exactly the same things as before; eating the same foods, exercising, yada, yada. Two thumbs up for the new thyroid compound! Anyway, I digress.
So for Christmas this year I decided to torture myself and make homemade chocolate as gifts. As you can imagine, with no self control when it comes to sugar I was doomed from the start. I made chocolate and ate sugar every day for a week, on par with the Halloween Candy Fiasco. In the past this would have translated into an instant 8-10 lb weight gain, taking months of no sugar to lose the weight.
Every day last week I stepped on the scale dreading the results, expecting to see 2 new lbs every morning. This you just won’t believe. Incredibly, I didn’t gain weight! (Okay, maybe 1 lb but that’s nothing) So what gives? How is this possible? Honestly, I am not sure.
The only thing that has changed is my thyroid medicine. So my theory is that the new compound medicine may finally help my metabolism the way it should, which means I might be able to occasionally eat sugar without gaining weight. This would truly be a miracle.
I will track for a few months, eat a few pies and let you know how it goes! And if anyone else tries my compound from Colliers please share what you learn!
