Hello To All Who Have Embarked On The Somersize Journey
My name is Kathryn and I live in Central Florida (Viera, Fl.) to be exact.
I was fortunate to spend several years in Europe growing-up,
experiencing everything it had to offer. To this day, I still remember
the amazing foods and the roles they played in their daily lives.
Baking is a PASSION of mine and I'm hoping to alter all our favorites
to fit into the Somersize realm.
I hit Menopause at age 45, and spent the next 4 years having an outrageous Hormone Imbalance completely take over my life,
then... to add insult to injury, I was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism at age 49.
At age 49 I could no longer handle the Menopause symptoms (mentally or physically) and was very happy to find that my ob/gyn
had a great deal of knowledge regarding "Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy" so from 49-50 things started to regulate again.
After close to 1 year of Hormone Therapy I've had to begin taking stronger doses because ALL Menopause symptoms had returned.
Late last summer, Hubby and I made the decision to go on the HCG
Protocol... complete with daily injections (the injections were
virtually painless, the eating plan was a different story!!)
It is really difficult to incorporate the HCG eating plan into REAL
LIFE, between feeding 3 teenagers regular meals and my dear Hubby being
the "weakest link" between the two of us, I was
pretty proud of myself when I made it through 26 days of injections with
very few CHEATS, and lost 11lbs. If I had been able to be By Myself for
30 days I would have been able to take off
much more weight. During all of this I was researching the whole
SOMERSIZE thing, and a week ago I made a commitment to really give
Somersizing a try... keeping my husband interested
is definitely going to be the toughest part. I'm seeing differences
between the Older Books and the NEW ones, but it's all been trial &
error and it is going to come down to what works best for Me (Us).
I'm sure over the next weeks I will have ton's of questions and I'm so glad I have you all to come to.
Thrilled to be here,
