So I notice I have never gotten into the WCW thing lol.... I finally decided to crush on ME today.
Don't get me wrong I am absolutely in love with myself, I love to take pictures and talk about my weight loss experience but that took over 25 years of my life.
The devil stole 25 years of my life due to weight and hypothyroidism. I suffered in silence because no one understood my issues, I didn't even understand myself.
I hated myself and was constantly suicidal yet I made people laugh (what an irony). I cracked jokes about my weight because it was the only way I knew to look like I didn't care. Yet I cared!!! Countless times I would have a great performance but drive home in tears, it was a crazy, roller coaster feeling. It was not just the weight it was much more but I could not explain it. I was scared. I would be on stage and have a brain fog and forget a joke right in the middle of delivery, just go blank, and have to come up with stuff on the spur of the moment to cover for the lapse, I started to dread performing. Trust me I have gotten into my car before and took me about 10mins to remember exactly where I was going, I just sat there, tears of frustration rolling down. (One day I will write it all in a book). It's hard enough to loose weight but to loose weight while having hypothyroidism is almost like fighting demons, I just wanted to sleep and not wake up, why won't God be kind and do that for me? I could not sleep unless I was heavily sedated with sleeping pills and could not boot in the morning without a strong cup of coffee.... Am still trying to loose about 20kg, it's getting harder lol... It's getting more difficult to say no to things I used to love lol.... It's been almost 5 years on this crazy but amazing journey, 5 years of pain, tears, frustration, laughter, joy and triumph.... 5years of wanting so badly to Bing on a bowl of ice cream or a bag of malteasers but not giving in. 5 years of dreaming of chease cake lol.... I might dream for a long time. 5 years and a lifetime to go, because I AM WORTH FIGHTING FOR.
MY NAME IS LEPACIOUS BOSE AND I AM A THYROID WARRIOR, A SURVIVOR. #stilltoolegittoquit
It is pertinent to note that many people whose test results are dismissed as normal could continue to have symptoms of an underactive thyroid. Their moods, emotions, and overall well-being are affected by this imbalance, yet they are not receiving the care they need to get to the root of their problems.
Trust me everyone around me thought I was mad or making excuses for my weight, yet I was dying slowly.
Even if the TSH level is in the lower segment of normal range, a person may still be suffering from low-grade hypothyroidism.
Many people may be suffering from minute imbalances that have not yet resulted in abnormal blood tests.
Extreme Fatigue. If you’re always tired, even after sleeping 8 to 10 hours a night, it’s a common sign that your thyroid hormone levels are low. Of course, fatigue and low energy are associated with many conditions, but if you don’t have enough thyroid hormone (TH) flowing through your body, your muscles aren’t receiving a signal to get up and get moving.
Brain Fog. If it feels as though you’re walking around in a fog all day, are having difficulty focusing, or forgetting things frequently, it could be that your thyroid is out of whack. Too much TH can make it hard to concentrate, while too little can cause memory problems, this drove me nuts, I forget things even on stage. Smh
Digestive Issues. Those with hypothyroidism often complain of constipation, as an underactive thyroid can cause the digestive process to slow.
Mood Problems. Mood swings, anxiety or depression can develop in those who have thyroid disorders. Sudden burst of anger or tears? Na me bi dat.
WHAT TO DO.... Follow an anti-inflammatory diet by eliminating processed foods and eating as many whole, organic foods as possible.
Take high-quality supplements, (as stated in my previous post). Avoid wheat.
Exercise — this is especially important to correct thyroid function. Walking briskly for 30 minutes a day is good.
Switch from iodized table salt to sea salt, as it has more minerals that help support better thyroid functioning.
Follow a gluten-free diet, which has also been shown to improve thyroid function. #thyroidwarrior
In addition to including coconut oil in your diet, try these other natural ways to balance your thyroid function.
Avoid chemicals like triclosan, which is commonly found in items like antibacterial soap, deodorant, lotions, and even in cutting boards.
Supplement with probiotics, as good thyroid functioning depends on a supply of healthy gut bacteria.
Take a high quality whole-food multivitamin, and make sure you’re getting enough iodine, B-vitamins, vitamin A, vitamin D, iron, omega-3 fatty acids, selenium, zinc and copper.
Limit exposure to fluoride and mercury (so you need to avoid toothpaste with fluoride)— have a good water-filtration system for your home.
Avoid drinking water from, electric kettles, pots, dispenser water as much as possible. Boil water for your tea directly if you can. Try not to drink bottled water exposed in the sun, Reduce the use of microwave (trust me this is tough for me too) and most importantly pray and trust God for his healing.
If you have reason to believe that your thyroid may be working only half time for you, then apart from using coconut oil; you need to Embrace a healthy lifestyle that includes tons of whole foods, a regular sleep pattern, and movement (every chance you get). Before long, you will not only feel better, but you may be surprised at how well your pants fit!
The worst type of fat you must always avoid: trans fat, also known as partially hydrogenated oil. Often included in so-called “low fat” foods, this fake fat is highly dangerous. Please always read the food labels RUN FROM TRANS FAT.
The main sources of trans fats are processed, baked goods and fast foods. You must switch to a whole foods diet if you want to help your thyroid. So, sorry, no more pastries, pizzas, candy-bars etc for us thyroid fighters.
These types of fats raise levels of “bad” LDL cholesterol, while reducing levels of “good” HDL cholesterol. It is best to stay away from trans fats altogether — they offer absolutely no health benefits instead they kill your thyroids.
WARNING: Not ALL Coconut Oil
is Created Equal ooooo.... Pls note I DO NOT SELL COCONUT OIL OOOOO AM JUST GIVING YOU THE INFORMATION ON THYROIDS.
Hypothyroidism causes a decrease in thyroid hormone and it is not as simple as replacing the hormone ( a very Western thing to do, of course). The underlying cause of the condition MUST be addressed.
It is important to understand what happens in an autoimmune disease. First and foremost, this condition causes the body to attack itself in the same fashion that it would attack a foreign invader, such as a virus or bacteria.
It is believed that diet plays a role in thyroid health. Although low iodine intake leads to low thyroid function, table salt does not appear to be the best option. Many foods eaten in Western culture contain what are known as goitrogens or iodine blockers. Two popular goitrogens are soybeans and peanuts. ( which are presumably healthy)
With the industrialization of our agricultural system, soil has become iodine deficient, further compromising thyroid health. In addition, consumption of refined sugars and grains also negatively impact thyroid function.
Most times Thyroid Medications Don’t Work;
Simply gobbling up hormone replacement medication without addressing the root of the problem will not promote health. It is a band-aid solution that so frequently defines Western medicine.
The attack causes inflammation which suppresses thyroid hormones and also decreases the responsiveness of thyroid receptors. You can pump all the thyroid medication you want into your body, but if your receptors are not keen, it won’t help at all.
The two root causes of hypothyroidism, immunity and inflammation, MUST be addressed in order to restore balance and health to the body.
Research demonstrates that the naturally occurring saturated fat found in coconut oil has some amazing therapeutic values:
Promoting heart health, Boosting the immune system, Providing immediate energy, Promoting healthy skin, Helping to regulate blood sugar, Boosting metabolism, Promoting weight loss
The unique medium-chain fatty acid profile of coconut oil is what makes it done on coconut oil and metabolism has found that changing the oils you use every day can help you lose up to 36 pounds in a year. Yep… simply by switching unhealthy oils for coconut oil.
To be continued....
I have people tell me all the time… “I can’t seem to lose weight no matter how much I exercise, I feel tired and I don’t know what is wrong with me.” Does this sound like you?
A good place to start uncovering issues is to consider the efficiency of the thyroid. Often, even if your test results say you are fine, the thyroid is struggling to do its job. Without a properly functioning thyroid, it is nearly impossible to feel and look well.
I did thyroid tests many times and they all came back clean until I found the right doctor that knew the signs to look out for.
As many as one in three women over 25 may be suffering from thyroid problems.
FACT: Thyroid hormones are necessary for normal health and cellular activity, and if thyroid function is not normal, weight loss is next to impossible.
Are you exhausted, have memory lapses, thinning hair, body aches, irritability, depression, sleep problems, low sex drive, constipation and/or weight gain? Perhaps you don’t quite feel right but can’t put your finger on why?
It may be your thyroid — the butterfly-shaped gland that rests below your Adam’s apple, just along the front of your windpipe. Comprised of two lobes, connected in the middle by a bridge, the thyroid serves a major role in metabolism growth and maturation.

When the PRAISE WARRIORS hosted hundreds of widows yesterday at the ALABASTER PRAISE 2017.
it was an Owambe kinda day, hours and hours of non stop traditional praise and worship, loads to eat and drink and a lot of Christmas give away for all.
I believe heaven is pleased when we go out of our way to be a blessing to people who don't have the privileges we do. The joy the women expressed, in their dancing and singing is totally unexplainable.
