I am starting yet another journey with this weight loss battle....again and again and again. I have been overweight most of my life. Now in my 30's with 3 young children (ranging in age from 4 years, 3 years, and my youngest 8 months)...I have realized I NEED to get healthy for me and for them. After the delivery of my youngest I have also battled with thyroid cancer...have had surgery, had treatment, and am trying to adjust to this new life as well as be a mother, a wife (my husband is in the military and is often gone, plus the fact that we move often). I know I have a lot on my plate, but I have to ask myself how much longer am I going to use that excuse or find another one. There are always going to be excuses.....I just don't want to use them anymore. I don't want to be the girl with the beautiful face any longer. I want to feel good, have energy, feel fit, shop in regular stores (Lane Bryant love ya...but I need variety!) and so much more. Most importantly I know what I don't want to be...obese any longer! I want to have a healthy self image. It is going to be a long road ahead of me, I know that. I know what I HAVE to do....it's doing it that's the problem...it's self control and picking myself up once I get down and keep on blowing ahead!

    Hi my name is Anna, I am a thyroid cancer survivor..I also had papaliarry carcinoma. My story sounds very similar to yours. I have boys and my yougest was 4 at the time. my biopsy was also inconclusive, so had surgery and had the cancer in both the right and left lobes.. Went through low iodine diet also, the had RAI. My endo had me stay away from for 7 days, because of my children and our dog. I stay in my moms basement, my hubby ansd kids would come to my moms house and sit in the front yard. they would talk to me through the window. It was hard not being w them. But it went by fairly quickly. I don't have any books, but I went to the thyca website quite a bit. If you have questions you think you can ask. You are in my prayers. God Bless.

    just wanted to send you support as you deal with the cancer. I know how you feel and am around if you need/want support from someone who truly understands. I was 30 when I found out.
