Hi! I'm Kerri. I am a survivor of thyroid cancer and am embarking on my quest to lose weight after a total removal of my thyroid and 3 lymph nodes.

I have a wickedly cool scar that cuts across the lower part of my neck. When people have the courage to ask me about it I always respond with "I got in a fight with a pirate! You should see what I did to him!!" Kids always get really big eyes when I start saying that and then give the "no, really" look, adults usually start laughing. The truth behind the scar is that I had thyroid cancer and had to have my thyroid removed along with 3 lymph nodes.

Before my surgery I HATED the thought of having a permanent scar across my neck. I thought I would be self conscious of it and did not want to have yet another scar. After my surgery, my whole attitude changed! I am proud of my scar and in fact I LOVE it!! My scar is a badge of honor and shows membership in a club that I never wanted to be in. I don't mind when people ask about my scar, because I figure it's an opportunity for me to educate them about a disease that is silent for a long time before it is discovered.

I continue to fight for my health in many ways. I will not give up and I will ultimately be successful!
June 22, 2011~~~ I am fighting to recover from my eating disorder and achieve a healthy weight in a healthy manner. I am working on following a meal plan given to me by my treatment team. i need to make sure that I eat according to my plan......no more and no less.
