I'm honored to be sharing another incredibly inspiring Weight Loss Success Story with you today. By replacing "exercise" with "play" Cori Magnotta, a mom with acute hypothyroidism, was able to haul hoop away 85 pounds!

When I was pregnant with my son in May of 2014, I developed severe preeclampsia (high blood pressure) and was put on bed rest for the last 2 months of my pregnancy.

Weeks after I had my son, although I was eating less and taking him for long walks in the stroller, I wasn't able to lose any of the pregnancy weight.

Despite being positive that I "just needed to try harder," she agreed to run a full thyroid panel of blood tests on me just to be sure. I had overweight parents my entire life and I became determined that my son was going to have a healthy mom!

I began to search the internet for fun workout ideas, as I knew I loathed the treadmill and gyms. I came across FXP Hoop Fitness, which uses a weighted Hula-Hoop and incorporates Barre, Yoga, and Pilates in fun, innovative, dance-like routines. Since no classes were offered in my area, I purchased the 2 pound FXP Hoop online and started hooping at least 10 minutes a day while watching TV and worked my way up to an hour at a time.

Studies show that hula hooping for just one hour can burn between 600-800 calories! As I began to lose weight, people started asking what I was doing and I wanted to share this fun way to get fit with them! I use my title as a megaphone to raise awareness and advocate for hypothyroidism and thyroid disorders.

My son just turned 2 years old and I am proud to be healthy enough and have the energy to play with him all day long! What Was Your Wake-Up Call Or "A-Ha Moment" That Caused You To Really Commit Yourself To Succeeding? I started educating myself about what I was putting in my body, I read labels and learned how my food was prepared like never before. My go to trick for fitting in my work out every day is to take him to a fully fenced-in toddler park and hoop for about 20 minutes while he explores contently.
