Hormone are LEGIT.

It was very hard for me to put this up. I promised myself(and announced it to ALL of you) after returning from Italy I was going to be posting progress pictures almost DAILY as accountability until my Wedding.

After returning I did the 3 day refresh and lost 7 out of the 10 lbs I gained in Italy (haha oops!) and was feeling AWESOME. But what was going on deeper I didn't share with you all. After stopping my birth control(which I was taking for cramps and acne--don't get the wrong idea there please ;) ) back in February, my hormones we're all out of whack and my cycle was all over the place. I didn't feel NORMAL so I was put on a normal daily dose of progesterone and DHEA daily. Taking these two together made me feel decently normal…but I knew I didn't want to stay on these pills forever. Last week, my Dr. told me to stop taking those pills and come get bloodwork in two weeks. Pretty easy right? So I stopped and guess what-- the scale started moving UP, my face started breaking out like I was a girl going through puberty for the FIRST time, and I was just feeling off--AGAIN. I continued to eat extremely clean and work out for an hour per day--cardio/stretching/lifting. I have been SO consistent it's not even funny.

However, I refused to put up ANY progress pictures because I didn't feel inspiring. I had woken up and literally put on 5 lbs of water weight overnight. I felt puffy all over even though I was kicking booty in my eating and work outs. Talk about frustrating!!!

Yesterday, I had had ENOUGH.  I decided to hop back on the progesterone and DHEA and move back when I do my bloodwork because I have a trip to Punta Cana in a few days that I don't want to be feeling like a marshmallow during.

This morning I woke up and dropped 2 lbs of that water weight.

Crazy right? So for those of you who follow me. You will always get 100% truth from me because I know by sharing MY story…I will be helping someone who is going through the same things.

Hormones are a crazy crazy thing and can do SO much to your body. I know a lot of women on here are either experiencing something similar or know someone who is. Don't just settle. Talk to your Dr. to figure out what is going on. You won't regret it! Because working so hard and getting NO results is not fun…believe me I know!
