I feel like we are the forgotten ones.
I remember when I had graduated from college, stopped playing soccer, gotten into my 8-5 job (then tack on the commute) and before I realized it, I had gained 12lbs.
I also remember S E A R C H I N G like it was my freaking job to find a program that would fit my individual needs as a type 1 diabetic and you know what I found?
I felt like I was always trying to manipulate programs to work for my t1 but nothing ever worked 100%. I hired a trainer, I did the Beachbody programs, I did the YouTube videos, I bought every copy of Women’s Health and scoured Bodybuilding.com for the latest plans that had me eating like a gazillion carbs and every 2 hours on the hour, til I felt like I’d pop.
Have you been there my t1 sister? Feeling like you’re trying everything to lose weight, to manage your blood sugar, to reduce stress, to live your life in some kind of balance to create a LIFESTYLE that’s maintainable? Me too.
I finally got sick and tired of being sick and tired.
I got tired of trying to make everyone else’s plan (who didn’t have t1) fit me, with t1!
I took what worked, left what didn’t, and came up with new strategies that DO work with type 1.
I reduced my a1c to 5.4%, lost weight, boosted my confidence, reduced my stress, got stronger (mentally and physically), kicked the depression meds, and started living a lifestyle, NOT a diet.
On June 17th, I’m launching T1D THRIVE! A 6 week program for type 1 diabetic women geared towards better blood sugars, reducing inflammation, more energy, workouts that are quick and effective, plus lifestyle tips, sample meal plans, group coaching, daily education and much more!
If this is something you’d like to be a part of email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll be in touch! I decided for this first round, I want to keep it small and intimate so I’ll only be working with TEN women who are COMMITTED to themselves, the process and making progress.
Can’t wait to get started with you!
