What a difference a week makes. I started physical therapy last week-which I went to on Monday and Friday. I have scheduled twelve appointments in the next six weeks! I didn’t really know what to expect, but after my first session, I knew that it was going to be helpful. My endo had associated my knee/joint pain with Hashimoto’s, but I also happen to have flat feet, which doesn’t help. It turns out that this whole time, I was doing all the wrong exercises to help myself. I have been running on a treadmill which is definitely not the best idea for anyone with knee pain, as stated by my physical therapist. It was really great getting one on one attention. I did specific exercises, as shown by my PT, to strengthen my feet and leg muscles. As apprehensive as I was to start, it is now my favorite part of the week.

I was feeling positive and even decided to go the extra mile by joining a gym! Now my mission is to lose some weight, which will eventually help with the brutal knee pain. It feels good to have started my health regimen! I’m even thinking about going gluten free. Has anyone had experience with transitioning to a gluten free lifestyle? Twenty nine days until a candy-less Halloween!


Happy October.


Sending much love and support your way,

Tracy <3

    Hey, I just clicked on this because I have hashimoto’s but when I saw your comment about gluten free I thought I would reply. Going gluten free can actually make it harder to loose weight, as gluten free foods often have more fat, sugar and salt because it is harder to make them taste good. I have coeliacs disease, so have followed a gluten free diet for ten years, but I’m told if you don’t have coeliacs or an obvious gluten intolerance it can do more harm than good to go gluten free. I’d recommend talking to a doctor or dietician, before making dietary changes. Hope that helps 🙂

    Thank you very much for the advice. That information is very helpful! I was actually tested for celiac disease a couple of months ago, but the test came back negative. I will refer to my doctor before making any dietary changes. Thanks again for your help!
