There are quite a few of us here with thyroid issues from mild to severe. I'm sure as you're browsing the threads you'll find some of interest to you. One of my favorite websites/blogs is theclothesmakethegirl | train hard. eat clean. live loud. she has had either part or all (can't recall) of her thyroid removed and she writes about food and fitness and some other fun things. She also has a fantastic cookbook out.
