I want to know if you have any advice for someone with thyroid problems. Mine crashed last year and I'm on medication for it, but, am really struggling to lose the weight. I am 49 years old, and have 20 lbs to lose. I use your machine at least 4 times a week, I have two horses and ride them each approx 1- 1/2 hours a day 3-4 times a week, clean their stalls and try to get in a 30-40 walk on days I don't ride. A month ago I decided to try the adkins diet- finished 2 weeks induction and have been two weeks on OWL. I see a bit of a difference, and a steady 4 lbs off on the scale. I don't eat sweets, drink alcohol, starches or heavy carbs. I feel I'm doing everything I'm supposed to, but not seeing the results I'd like or would expect to see. I'm really frustrated and feel like my efforts aren't worth it. Any suggestions or help would be really appreciated. Really feel like giving up!!
John Abdo Hi Annie: Please make sure you check with your doctor before proceeding with any of these suggestions. First, as you know, you have a hormonal imbalance; i.e., thyroid, which regulates your metabolism. Thyroid hormone might 'not' be the only hormone out of balance so, again, ask your doctor to check that. Also, resistance training, even 10-20 minutes, with weights or rubberized tubing; like the Power Resistance kit for the AB-Doer, will isolate muscle more directly which is intended to boost metabolism even higher. Also, do not drink anything but water, drink as much as you can, all day long, to keep your system flushed of toxins and properly hydrated. Finally, meditate of the FACT that, through the power of your mind, you can, and will, make positive healthy changes. I have witnessed thousands of miraculous transformations of the years. You will improve. Believe it. I hope this helps! John Abdo
Annie Andrews Hi John: I really appreciate you getting back to me, and I will check with my doctor first to see if there is anything else out of balance. I have weights and rubber tubing and will add resistance training to my workouts. I usually have quite a good attitude and am pretty easy going. I will give all your advice a try and Thank you again for all your help. Love your machine by the way!!! Take care...Annie.February 25 at 8:31pm · LikeHey John..it's your favorite ballroom dancer and past HSN worker and one of the first b roll testimonials gals. The twist looks great
John Abdo GREAT to hear from You!!!February 12 at 1:53am · LikeDebra Kee You look great as usual. Have a great story for you...short of it is that I was struck by a moving car while I was walking xmas eve of 01. Ended up in a wheel chair, neck surgery, disc removed, lots of pain killers. For a long time I couldn't move well and was in a wheel chair. Kept my ab doer as my computer chair and started to get back in it as it was the only movement I could do for months. I was so grateful to have it. Started teaching full time again in 03. Hugs your way.February 12 at 3:16am · Like
