Default Mastering Your Metabolism

Hi all, My Dr recommended "Mastering Your Metabolism" yesterday and as I started reading it, I LOVED it. Is anyone else reading this? I am also reading the 30 day challenge book with it that has menus and exercises all picked out and you just follow them for 30 days. Does anyone want to do this with me???!!! Since Independence Day is coming up, I thought it only fitting that I make myself Independent from an unhealthy lifestyle!!! I can't wait - who's with me? Molly

Molly, count me in. I got the 30-day challenge book and love it. The meals are actually food I eat and the recipes are easy. I also like having the exercise laid out for me each day. I'm going to order "Mastering Your Metabolism". I'm hypothyroid so it might help that, too.

My mom bought this book and let me borrow it. I thought it was really good.

I have a question though, has anyone actually made an appt with an endocrinologist to get their levels checked? I think I might. I've always had issues with slow weight loss and my mom has a lot of thyroid issues, so I wonder if my hormones are all out of whack.
