Hey, Yeah Yeah! I too like the structure of this diet. I find it incredibly helpful to lay out what I will eat each day on paper. It takes the guess work out of things for me. This time around I also started counting points because I needed to get a grip on my portions and that helps too. That part sort of fell apart in February/April, and my weight was bouncing up and down all over the place, so I'm back to it now.

You can get unsweetened soy milk, and I think you might even be able to get fat free half and half. Personally I use whole milk in my coffee and don't look back. All my other dairy products are low fat/reduced fat except for some full fat cheeses I occasionally allow myself.

What kind of treatment are you under for the Hashimoto's? That should also boost your weight loss.
