I just got blood work that showed I am normal so no need for any drastic diets I can't stick to anyway. My goal this year is to stick to No-S the whole year and stay o...

It's been a month since I have checked in. I ended up not having a biopsy on my thyroid. Doc said it looks benign still so we will will check it again in six months. It's uncomfortable, but I don't want to remove the thyroid unless I really truly have to!! I'm down a little over 2 pounds this month....
