How the Healthy Mommy helped this mom beat her thyroid disease

Shelly Hedley, 34, is a mom of 4 children aged 16, 14, 13 & 8. She has been following The Healthy Mommy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge since 2018.

Shelly shares, “I started doing something about my weight in June 2019 and it’s taken me 7 months to lose 28 pounds and 50cm.

“I have an overactive thyroid and I now have it under control thanks to The Healthy Mommy.

“I feel a lot more energetic and happy since losing weight. Before I lost weight I was considerably depressed, anxious, unfit and so much more.

I’ve taken control of my life again, it hasn’t been easy but I’m getting there slowly.”

Shelly’s thyroid disease

Shelly shares, “I’ve had an overactive thyroid for 10 years, I was on medication until the end of last year I was taken off it as they think it may be under control.

“My specialist wanted me to lose weight and exercise and I did try for a long time. I was sceptical at first to try the Healthy Mommy, but I gave it a go and I’ve learned to have a good relationship with food and exercise.”

About thyroid disease (Hyperthyroidism)

Around one in 20 people will experience some form of thyroid disease. The thyroid gland is part of the endocrine system, which secretes regulatory hormones into the blood.

An overactive thyroid is known as hyperthyroidism, and this condition tends to affect women more than men. Around two in every 100 women will experience some degree of hyperthyroidism.

The symptoms of hyperthyroidism include:

  • Accelerated heart rate or palpitations
  • Muscle weakness and trembling
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Sensitivity to heat
  • Diarrhoea
  • Sleeping difficulties
  • Sweating
  • Irritability
  • Nervousness, agitation and anxiety
  • Changes in menstruation, including scantier flow and increased cycle length.

Shelly’s favorite Healthy Mommy recipes

“The Healthy Mommy has taught me so much about food and exercise and I’m already halfway to my goal.

“I absolutely love the Mushroom and bacon quinoa and the Beef stovetop lasagna, Strawberry and dark choc parfait and the Choc chip banana bread.”

 

Shelly’s tips for other mums

 

  • Drink plenty of water at least 3L a day.
  • Eat those calories.
  • Plenty of self care ( this I can’t stress enough!).
