      Just like Mel...eating heathier with more organic veggies and fruits and also started to juice. I cut all meats, less dairy, and no more fast food or greasy food! I also started going to yoga classes, meditate before going to sleep and go to Reiki sessions.

      We eat more healthfully now--try to aim for that "deck of cards size" chicken or fish usually, and then fill the rest of our SMALL plates w/fruits and veggies. We also are working out 5 days a week, for at least l hour each day. So far I have lost 20 lbs and feel GREAT! Those endorphins work as well as Percocet for me!

I continue to do WW and eat as health as I can. i try to focus on what I can do, not on what I can not do.

      none. most of them were out of date and were more frightful than helpful. Even my oncologist who is an amazing Doctor told me to stop researching on-line because the information was not up to date.

      You all know me well, I have posted the link to http://www.thyca.org who has a huge amount of information on thyroid cancer.
      The national cancer institute has a great web site as well. http://www.cancer.gov/cancertopics/types/thyroid
      I am a former computer programmer so I Google for information on everything. I find WebMD and the Mayo Clinic to have very good information on any kind of health information I need. Google is a great tool as long as you look carefully at where the information is coming from (not everything on the internet is to be trusted...) Tracy
