Her story is one of determination and the power of the human spirit. She has not only been a source of inspiration as we followed her along her journey, but Nicole has also been a valuable source of information as she shared her struggles associated with having type 1 diabetes and hypothyroidism. Her experiences educated us about diseases and how they can affect weight loss. Under the direction of her doctor and with the help of Kelley Henry, her personal trainer, Nicole was able to accomplish her goal. She lost weight—a total of 28 pounds—in spite of some very challenging health issues that directly influence her weight. She showed some of us that our situations are not as bad as we may have thought. For others, she proved that even when the cards seem stacked against us, we can still overcome adversity and reach our health and fitness goals.
Her experience with REAL STORIES and the opportunity to share her experiences of living with type 1 diabetes and hypothyroidism has meant a lot to Nicole, and so she wanted to make sure that she expressed the following to all of you:
“To the readers…Thanks for taking the time to listen. I really hope it has benefited, inspired, or at the very least, entertained some folks out there. This experience has taught me a lot and made me realize that I’m not the only one that deals with sickness and struggles (I read your comments!). Have a wonderful day :)”…Nicole
