If only gluten free doughnuts were easier to find…
Since the new year I’ve been trying to become more body positive. Tired of warring with my chronically ill body (hypothyroidism, Hashimoto’s, chronic fatigue), instead of focusing on always trying to lose weight by dieting, I’m just trying to give my body the love it needs to get better. Don’t get me wrong though, doughnuts are not a part of my daily meals (in fact, it’s been over a year since I last ate one) but I wouldn’t turn one down because of wanting to lose pounds anymore. The message on my vest is still relevant. I just want to be happy. I’m focusing on nourishing my body instead, with healthy foods and the nutrients and vitamins it needs with treat foods included, in stead of restricting calorie intake.
I also have a blog scheduled to post in a few weeks’ time about how dieting, reducing calories and carbs can even make you more hypothyroid. So watch out for that.
As the thyroid gland is responsible for metabolism, many of us experience weight fluctuations, but I am more than my weight and you are too. You’re chronically fabulous.
