Hashimoto’s Disease – No match for Lisa McManes!

4 th half Marathon May 2012Please meet  a woman who defines the word – CHAMPION,  Lisa McManes!  Lisa was diagnosed during her early elementary school years as having Hashimoto’s Disease which is an autoimmune thyroid disorder, which among other symptoms, likes to overtake ones’ thyroid leaving the person feeling fatigued and often times overweight.

I had the pleasure of interviewing Lisa on the 411 VOICES SPOTLIGHT radio show this weekend. What I learned is that truly “where there is a will.. there is a way!” You can learn throughout the interview about Lisa’s incredible journey of how she lost one hundred pounds, trained and ran a half- marathon, and now helps others through her inspirational speaking and mentoring.

Connect first with Lisa on Facebook as she documents her every step in  LISA’S WEIGHT LOSS DIARY.   Learn how she inspired others via the RICKI LAKE SHOW.  And, be part of her champion team by reaching out with her on TWITTER.  I believe that Lisa said it best when she was quoted on the Ricki Lake Show website..

My condition requires me to work harder than others and it is taking me a little longer to get the weight off, but IF I CAN DO IT, ANYONE CAN.

Bravo my new friend, Bravo!


Note: Lisa credited her weight loss and improved wellness to many sources including DotFit.  The arm band calculation product was mentioned on the show, however, they are not a sponsor of 411 VOICES.

Please check with your physician prior to starting any weight loss or exercise program.
