Hi, I’m Amanda and for the first time in my life I am finally feeling happy in my body. My health is in the best place it has been in years, I am at a weight that feels right for me, I have an abundance of energy to be able to do a physical job as well as my WILDFIT coaching and I have plenty of energy to keep fit with pilates, weight training, hiking and playing tennis. But it hasn’t always been this way….
My personal WILDFIT journey started when I discovered that the low thyroid condition I was diagnosed with, was also actually auto-immune, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. This, combined with hitting the menopause, and a lifetime of high stress, moderate unhealthy eating, sporadically interspersed with short-term healthy eating, I suddenly found myself experiencing insomnia, heart palpitations, hot flushes, unexplained stomach pain that was so draining I couldn’t work, exhaustion, brain fog, memory loss and generally feeling lost and not like me!
I had watched my father struggle with auto-immune conditions from the age of 50, a similar age to me when I found out. He had been diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis, which then led into another auto-immune condition (which tends to happen with auto-immune conditions), and I watched him battle for the last 10 years of his life, in and out of hospital with chest infections and sepsis, and he sadly passed away in hospital, from heart failure in April 2020.
This was a huge wake-up call to me. I didn’t want that as my future, I knew I had to do things differently and I knew it had to start with my diet.
The resistance was huge. In my head, the questions kept coming up, “why do I have to change my diet, everyone else eats normally“, “I can’t do it! I know I’m not strong enough!” You see, every time I had previously tried to eat healthily, I had eventually failed, I hadn’t managed to maintain it, it was too hard.
So, I had a little chat with myself, and decided if I was going to really do this, I needed to find a program that helped me with my nutrition, and also helped me figure out why I reached for the crisps when I didn’t really want to! And that is when I found WILDFIT.
After my challenge I did some more blood tests and, to my surprise, my thyroid antibodies where back down into the normal range. In fact, all of my test results were in the good to optimal range and I was now, in fact, over treating my thyroid! I released 14kgs (over 2 stone) in weight and had energy like I had never experienced before, and I felt like me again. And what amazed me the most was the fact that I didn’t find it hard and it was actually fun and enjoyable.
I knew I had to train to become a coach as soon as I had the opportunity. I am also a Lymphoedema Therapist, and body worker with over 20 years experience in the health industry. I have so many women coming into my practice explaining that they are hardly eating anything and still putting on weight, with WILDFIT I can help them.
