thyroidToday’s the day!  I weighed in this morning at 123.4 on my digital scale.  The aim is to consume as close to 1000 calories as possible today, while sticking to the high nutrition and 80% alkaline/20% acid ratio of our OsteoDiet.  At the end of the 28 days, we’ll determine our Metabolic Function Index, a measure of our metabolic rate, using the tables in Dr. Sanford Siegal’s book, Is Your Thyroid Making You Fat?.

Confession:  I still haven’t purchased a glass thermometer, but I will soon.  That’s for measuring basal temperature every morning after waking up, but before rolling out of bed.
