Oi gente, decidi fazer esse post pq nos últimos dias o IG ganhou muitos seguidores e queria desejar boas vindas á todos e aproveitei que a minha amiga @maary_guedes me deu um toque pra esclarecer que meu processo de emagrecimento foi 100% RA + AF.
Quando as pessoas conhecem a minha história, vêem fotos e etc, eu sempre ouço aquela frase clássica "o que vc tomou?". Poxa, ninguém quer saber o que eu comi ou o que eu deixei de comer, as noites que eu cansada depois de um dia de faculdade e treino fiquei preparando as marmitas do dia seguinte (são 5 refeições na rua). E quando eu explico que o que eu tomei não vende em farmácia, vergonha na cara, elas dizem "ah, mas é muito difícil". P#@$, é claro que é difícil, mas o esforço é proporcional ao ganho, à satisfação. Vc não pode querer alcançar grandes feitos sem esforços de mesma proporção.
Se vc está disposto a mudar seus hábitos, se reeducar, aprender a comer, a se controlar, sem dúvida seu objetivo será alcançado, mas não espere milagres, não espere cair do céu. Menos desculpas e mais atitudes.
Vamos lá, no começo eu não tinha nutricionista, mudei minha dieta baseada nas aulas de nutrição animal da faculdade (um dia minha professora de nutrição de monogástricos de ceco simples disse que era um absurdo nós sabermos os conceitos e não aplicá-los em nós mesmos), eu tava cansada de roupas me escolherem (meu sonho era entrar na loja que eu quisesse e comprar a roupa que eu quisesse - manequim 42 já me faria feliz na época), tentei treinar mas não consegui, decidi fazer uma dieta hipocalórica e secar mais rápido. Com 70kg e já tendo perdido 30kg procurei minha nutri e fui treinar, 6 meses depois cheguei aos 58.300kg e agora tenho uma dieta e treino voltados pro ganho de massa, do 42 que eu somhava, cheguei ao 36. Sem mistérios, então pare de se enganar com sucos, shakes e remédios milagrosos. É COMENDO QUE SE EMAGRECE!

5 Things You Need to Know When You Become a Special Needs Parent

There's no feeling like the one you get in your pediatrician's office when they tell you your child isn't like their peers in some way. Maybe it's the growth chart that says so. Maybe it's the autism screening. Maybe it's a hearing or vision test or your child isn't walking or talking and they should be by now. Regardless of how you end up learning that your child has special needs, there's no pamphlet they hand out with tips for the newly-minted special needs parent. Here are a few things from my experience that I think you should know:

1. Get connected with your state services.

When it was clear that Lucy was delayed in both speech and motor skills, our pediatrician referred us to private therapists. Fortunately, our family has good health insurance and we were able to afford the minimal therapy that was recommended at the time. It wasn't until we'd been doing private therapy for awhile that a friend of mine told me about the ECI (Early Childhood Intervention) program through the state of Texas. This intervention program provides assessment and therapy services to any child up to the age of 3, at little or no cost to the family. Every state has a program like this. They can also refer you into special public preschool programs where your child will receive services and accommodation for their special needs. This was absolutely of the most value to me, and despite going to the pediatrician repeatedly for both sick and well-checks, it was never mentioned to us.

2. Get connected with other parents.

If there's no manual for parenting, there definitely is no manual for parenting and special needs. The item above is the perfect example. I'd never have known about ECI if it weren't for another mom. You can learn lots of useful things from other special needs parents -- answers to questions you didn't even know you were supposed to ask. So when you're in the waiting room at therapy, or the specialist's office or on that preschool field trip, smile at another mom or dad and introduce yourself. These conversations can take you to important places and at the very least, build your support community. Nobody knows about your challenges like they do.

3. Your diagnosis is a journey, not an event.

This might be tough to swallow, but sometimes your first diagnosis isn't your last diagnosis. Or, to paraphrase Shrek, your diagnosis is like an onion. Onions have layers. When we received our first diagnosis of Dyspraxia, we were relieved to have a name for Lucy's condition. Then came the second diagnosis of Apraxia of Speech, then finally Sensory Processing Disorder. Years later, we are still getting new words, like Significant Developmental Delay, Cortical Vision Impairment, etc... As it turns out, some diagnoses are umbrella terms for other conditions. We just got our umbrella term later. And we've learned that there are layers to our onion. We just keep peeling and learning new things. It can be wearying. In order to preserve your sanity for the long-haul, it's best to look at diagnosis as a journey, rather than the defining moment where you learn and solve everything.

4. It's OK to take a break.

There may be times where you reach a plateau and things are going smoothly. You're in a routine that's working, you're not trying to integrate new information and your family is doing well. It's OK to take a break and just be in the moment. At various times, I've talked to several parents of special needs children who have told me that they're taking a few months off from research and just enjoying their kids. It's tempting to feel like you constantly need to be looking for the next therapy or treatment or diet, but if things are going well and your family is happy, it's a gift to relax into that for awhile. There will be hard moments, so put the sweet ones in your emotional bank account to help you when you're down in the valley, not up on the plateau.

5. You can do it.

Here's how it went for me: shock, grief, resolve. Once you dust yourself off and look around, when you've decided to start the work in front of you, you may not know where to begin. I remember joining groups on social media for information and support and sometimes having absolutely no idea what the other parents were talking about. I would hear terms I didn't know, and things that other parents were doing that I'd never considered. It was bewildering trying to sift through information. Just know that you will learn. And there are no stupid questions. Ask your doctor or your preschool teacher or that mom on Facebook whose blog you read. You will meet the nicest people, and other parents want to help you. Someday, you'll be that mom or dad, paying it forward. You can do it. I promise.
