My "Shit Pickle"... Hypothyroidism!

So it's not new info that I have a screwed up thyroid, right! But just recently (in the past 2 weeks) I have decided to quit taking my thyroid meds. Yep! Although my script was filled by the apothecary and it wasn't  made with crappy pig glands, I am feeling the need to be done with the meds and do this naturally. Even if the process for correcting my thyroid function takes much longer... I'm down for it! :)
I haven't seen a change in weight loss either... I'm still hungrier than ever and it takes all my will power to not permit to a "bad" diet.
So here I am, off the meds and starting to feel the effects... SLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEPY!!

My BFF sent me the book, Crazy Sexy Diet by Kris Carr... Don't have it? GET IT!!! I'm so serious! This book has got me back on my A GAME! The knowledge, information, facts and desire to be ultimately healthy beam from the pages! I want to juice, pursue my RAW Sexy Life and get on the inside and out healthy bandwagon! I was my healthiest, fittest and happiest when I was 100% Raw... getting back to that is my goal :)

Curious about my marathon training? Well, I haven't ran in over a WEEK!!! Yes! It's true!! My handsome man hurt the top of his foot (we believe from running and his shoe choice), therefore, I haven't been running... you won't see me running solo!! I've got up to 5 and a half miles and need to step it up. 10 miles is my goal for the month of May. I've been doing Turbo Fire to increase my high intensity training... Insanity helps too!!

This weekend... Watermelon! Nothing but watermelon! It's great for detoxing and cleansing and it's so hydrating. I'm really looking forward to it!

I have low thyroid and I've been taking natural thyroid ever since.I'm alarmed that this disease might cause cancer, and that's why I always take good care of my health.

I'm very interested in how your hypothyroidism is affected by diet changes. I've been hypo for 20 years and recently have had to increase my meds significantly and had negative side effects as a result. I'm trying a combo of Armour and Levoxyl now. Do you mind sharing your TSH level? I'm just wondering if diet changes are enough to help someone with a really high TSH? I'm currently at 7.25, down from 51. I got down to 1.95 on a high dose of Levoxyl, but still felt like crap so I asked to try Armour. "Shit Pickle" is the perfect description of this frustrating disease!
