    Thank you so much, souldanzer, would love to use your list of tests once you've posted it. I grew up in Switzerland, but live in the UK now. Where are you from originally?

He also suggested that a relatively small woman of my height and frame size who wore a size 32 DDD bra should consider breast reduction. He noticed the grooves in my shoulders from straps. I saw the surgeon but want to get my weight down a bit more first. I have a lot of mid thoracic pain and the boob weight does make me round over my shoulders. I did a lot of competitive swimming in school, mostly butterfly, which sets up imbalances also. I have a chiro who is really into alignment through strengthing, stretches me and points out tightness. He mentioned that a lot of back problems are happening in women with implants, which I do not have lol. I breastfed and went from a generous C to where I am now. Mostly due to menopause. My LPL send all my fat to my boobs. Personally I think they are a pain in the ass. They are in the way more often tab not. What was Pamela Anderson or dolly Parton thinking anyway? Anyway if you have huge boobies make sure you take care of your back. In my case bra straps hurt my operative side, unless I wear the racer back style.
    I know I will have to have it taken care of, just hoping later. I am careful with it, not using the right arm for anything over shoulder height. I used to teach aerobics and weight training...so used my arms alot over head. Now, I use the left arm for strength.
    And no, no problems with big boobies. When my weight goes down, they are the first thing to go. And they are all me, big or small LOL

    I just picked up a lab requisition from my doc and she has FSH, LH checked along with TSH (with T-3 and T-4 inked in next to the TSH). Should I ask about Free T-3, Free T-4, Reverse T-3 and R-T-4 also? The nurse said she didn't check the Estradoil or Progesterone since they will be able to check those when they do the FSH test. Just double checking since I am really trying to understand all these tests.
    Thanks~

    Just ordered mine this morn from a local lab that serves a health clinic. I just walked in a fwe years ago and found out I can get any test and I self-pay. They are cheaper than they charge insurance co's. But call ahead and arrange a "kit" that the lab prolly doesn't have on hand and will have to order. They age and go bad. I paid $140 for MSH. Requires special handling so be insistent on them following instructions to avoid wasting your time.

    All I can find is for lab rats. Though like I lab rat I feel at this point in my life...

    Just fried up some wild Maine shrimp in shell in a pan with c.oil, ghee and garlic and turmeric. Tasty. Now looking at my LARGE pile of shells, and wondering if they would make a bone-like broth??? Anyone ever try? Lots of good flavor soaked into them too.

    Also, MammaG: where are you finding your AID protocol, or are you just eliminating majority of commonly offending things?

    OK, I decided to count calories today and wow - no wonder I am gaining weight. I was trying to be conservative with a small lunch and I am up to 1,850 calories. I don't exercise and I don't work. My extent of physical activity today was cleaning bathrooms, dusting, and vacuuming the floor.

    Should I be cutting back until I am LS?

    No! Did cutting calories in the past help you to feel good and get well? Read other stories on the LR again to get inspiration. Lots gained before losing, and feeling better. You need to let your body do the plan, it will take care of things if you hold steady. Easy to stress and stall. Get lots of walking in during the day outside if you can. Helps to feel good. Go back to some of the fun activities you have enjoyed in the past when you felt good. It can help also...Calories in, calories out is not where it is at with the LR. It is hard to feel ok with in the beginning, but believe me, it WORKS!

    The above sounds a little harsh, was actually meant to be enthusiastic and encouraging, oh well.

    I lost 25 lbs in 5 months without counting calories. As long as you limit your intake of carbs and get most of your food from fat and protein, there shouldn't be a problem. It's not a math equation. Calorie restriction frequently leads to cheating. Take it easy on yourself. Some people do gain weight at different points of the reset.
