Advocare and BPD

Standard

As I’ve stated, I was recently “diagnosed” with Bipolar Disorder. I hate the term “diagnosed” because it makes me think of an illness that was caught. I didn’t catch bpd, it’s just me. It’s who I am. In my research I have learned that the people coping with it the best have changed every aspect of their lives. They eat healthier and exercise more. That seems simple enough right? Wrong. Most days it’s a struggle to get out of bed. My meds make me feel like I’m starving to death. Drinking water has been revolting. I’m struggling. Every day is a battle.

After seeing a recent photo of me standing next to my husband, I am disgusted. I’ve gained 50+lbs in the 3 years we’ve been together. It’s time for a change. My sister-in-law is a advocare distributor and suggested the 24 day challenge along with some apatite control and metabolism booster. After drinking the meal replacement shake today, I am in love!! I feel full for the first time in 2 months  (and no, I am not pregnant) and I have more energy! This is amazing! I feel like I might complete some project today and not because I’m manic!
