It's really time to give your gut some love
If our gut microbiome is not healthy that affects so many other parts of our body systems that we can feel completely out of whack - it even affects our hormones, cravings, food choices and our weightloss.
There are more of these microbes...
It's easy to tell me how to lose weight.
Not so easy to actually achieve it - when you have an underactive thyroid!

One day in Hawaii...
I was happily shopping in a GAP store I think it was, in Hawaii on holiday soon after we were married in 2001. I was wearing a pretty baggy dress but it was comfy!
