Being diagnosed with MS is not what you had planned for your life.
When you’re overweight, a diagnosis of MS can seem like a double whammy. Now you have another health issue to deal with that feels just as out of control as your weight.
It’s big and overwhelming and you just want to wave a wand and make this all go away. I wish I could do that for you. But I can’t.
What I can do is help you stop the battle with your body and do one of the best things for your health- lose weight.
There’s a lot of information coming at you from all sides. Your stomach probably knots up when you think about having MS. You may be scared of people finding out – of them looking at you differently. You’re probably looking at yourself a bit differently, too. You’re wondering what you can and can’t do now. Wondering which of the dozens of diets to choose and if you’re missing anything. You may even question if you’re as strong as you once were.
I know these things because I’ve been there.
I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis over 16 years ago. I was overweight, scared, mad, confused and frozen in place. I’ll tell you what it took me almost 10 years to find out for myself: I’m not as strong as I used to be – I’m way stronger.
MS is not a diagnosis of weakness.
It’s not a reason to wilt and hand over control of your life. It’s a reason to be fearless. To learn more about yourself than you ever knew before. And to thrive in your life because of it. And although it may feel like it, MS is not in control of your life. You are.
Look – there’s a ton of information out there. People you don’t even know will claim to know what will happen to you and what’s best for you. But they don’t. No one does but you.
You know yourself better than anyone.
And I want to help you navigate these new waters by deepening what you know to be true for yourself and finding the right answers for you. Because what works for weight loss is not one-size-fits-all.
You already have a great specialist and all the medical information you can digest right now. Let’s talk about what you can do on your own to get in front of the weight, regain your confidence and just feel a little better about this whole thing. Because there’s a lot that can help you in addition to what you’re already doing.
Remember – your body is not in control here. You are. And you decide how you want your weight and MS to affect you. It is possible.
I can show you how.
