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 more and no less.

    Hey Fierce!
    Summer is going well thus far.
    Youngest is home this summer with me... something unexpected.
    Going to Florida for 10 days next week... hope the weather's good, they're getting a lot of rain right now.

    Glad to hear that you are doing well, I think about you quite a lot and wish you the best.

    P.S. Knew I forgot something! The kimchi came out great! Not too spicy, very flavorful. Been noshing away on it.

    Hey Fierce!
    Good to know that you are doing well! What do you think is the key to your success ?

    Have a fun Sunday, I'm making up a batch of Kimchi today. Haven't made it in a long time, should be interesting to taste how this batch turns out. I put some smoked bonita in it, but I'm not sure if I'll be able to taste it over all the red pepper and chili! LOL
