Carrie Horton, the Office Manager at Cross Roads Hormonal Health and Wellness began her own wellness journey four years ago.
She started by having her hormones and thyroid tested. Her results showed that she would benefit from Hormone Replacement Therapy with biote pellets. She also began taking Nature-Throid to help balance her thyroid levels.
She started to feel better but continued to lead a sedentary lifestyle with poor eating habits.
Carrie participated in training for the Center for Medical Weight Loss program at Cross Roads Hormonal Health & Wellness which educated her on how healthy eating habits will help her maintain her weight loss efforts for life.
“I was an emotional eater and ate to feel good. If I was having a bad day, then I needed a Dr. Pepper and peanut butter M&M’s to feel better. It didn’t stop there either, I had other favorite ‘mood fixing’ foods that I ran to for comfort. ”
Over the course of two years, the weight loss program taught Carrie important lifestyle and behavior choices to retrain her brain and how to view food as fuel for the body and not to depend on it to ease her emotions. During this process Carrie started working out and noticed how much better exercise made her feel.
“When I was stressed I started choosing the gym or a walk instead of food.”
I’ll be honest, during this journey, there were so many times I gave up because the changes didn’t come fast enough. But after my pity parties subsided (some of which lasted 2 weeks at a time) I would have another ‘Day 1.’
As you can see in this photo, I can finally see the results and I love how much better I feel!
My encouragement to everyone is to work out, eat well and be patient. Your body will reward you.”
