    Hi, I'm back to the forums after a break and reading through you journal ... good job on 4 lbs in 2 weeks, that is perfect!

    Just a comment, you might consider looking into Armour Thyroid, it is natural thyroid with both T3 and T4 and I felt SOOO much better when we added that to my Levoxyl, it made all the difference! A lot of docs don't know about it though or don't believe it's really better than synthetic, but it's worth a little pressure on your doc

    I've never even thought to eat the salmon skin, maybe I will try it now

      Thanks, Mikki! I intend to bring it up. My doc made a big stink about getting Synthroid, not a generic, so I have a feeling it will be a battle. I'm also going to ask her to do some more testing and if she refuses, I'll find someone else. I'm grateful that she tested for Hashis, I've known something was wrong for years and she was the first on to put 2 & 2 together, but that doesn't mean I won't move on if I feel she's holding me back.

      Thanks again, for stopping by!

                          Still feeling good this morning. Belly noticeably less bloated, not sure why, but upped BioKult to 2 caps a day and added Kyolic digestive formula, 2 a day and a spoonful of locally made fresh kraut at least 1 time a day for the last few days. forgot to add that to my food log. think of it more as a supplement.

                          BF GF ribeye, 3 forks of kraut coco manna
                          Lunch salad, greens, spinach, 3 oz can tuna, coco manna, 3 sm brazil nuts
                          Dinner black olives mac nuts coco manna

                          Stopped at the store and got some more GF steaks and some pastured chicken leg qtrs, but not enough. Have to place my order this weekend with Slankers.

                          Got latest US TSH, 2.37. ugh. I have been noticing that I'm more tired during the day and have had that blah feeling periodically. Doc thought it was fine, I said, no, lets try 1 1/2 pills of 25 mcg a day rather than 1. 50 was a little too much, I was having some anxiety at night, when my TSH dropped to .5. I'm not sure if it's the dosage drop or if it's because I now take it 5 hrs after breakfast now, 1 hr before lunch. It seems like that should be long enough, maybe not. I used to take it right after I woke up, 1 hr before breakfast, but can't do that with Leptin reset. I'm reconsidering that, the eating within 30 minutes of waking up. I am unable to do all the other things such as wake with and look at the sun. I'm reading up on Ron Rosedale's Leptin ideas, that might be more workable. Haven't decided yet.

                            Did a premature (for Whole 30) weigh in this am. 180.?6. That's great! I'm averaging 2 lbs a week. I'll take it!

                              Couldn't resist weighing myself and measuring. 179.6 and down in measurements, which I first took 5 weeks ago. I dropped from 41" to 35" in my below the bust measurement. I measured 3 times and had 3 previous weeks to compare to. astounding. It's those fat pads on my back, I guess! And I did notice the other day that I do, in fact, have ribs! I felt it the lower ribs, even though I'm still bloating out right below and to the center. That was a weird discovery. It's been a long time since I've noticed my ribs. Yay!

                              I'm going to try to log portion sizes for most stuff.

                              BF Salmon 8 oz. fried in coco oil, 1/2 c artichokes, 1 1/2 T additional coco manna
                              Lunch/Dinner Shrimp/scallops/mussels medley, cooked in CO and ghee. about 7 ounces cooked. some chicken skin that I cooked for later in the week. 1/3 c kraut, 1 1/2 T coco manna

                              BF was late because I tried to sleep in so I wasn't ready for lunch at lunch time. I may be hungry before going to bed!

                              For future reference, I have a jar of coconut manna that came solid and with the oil on top. I didn't stir it, I just take a tablespoon and scoop down far enough to get about 3/4 oil and 1/4 manna. When the oil is gone, I heat up coco oil from my regular jar and pour that on top, to about an inch thick. That lowers the carbs, gives me more oil, and yet I get the great "manna" taste. Not sure what I'll do if it liquifies this summer!

                              Placed my order with Slankers. They were out of a few things that I wanted. Will try to get some pastured lard more local.
