If you look at my profile picture you will see my dog. Like me, he see's the prize but can't seem to get it without help from his human friends.
I'm new to the community and would enjoy some friends with a wide range of personalities to keep things fun, light and even comical at times. I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer last fall. After recovering from surgery, several months of physiotherapy and then radioactive iodine treatment this past June I find I have a new outlook on life. I want to LIVE the best life I can. Prior to my Dx I was essentially sleeping my way through life. My weight has prevented me from being able to do the activities that I used to enjoy. I was 318 when I received my Dx. I'm fluctuating around 267 now. My goal is to be around 140lb. I would like people who need to lose significant weight, people who have been losing the weight, people who are maintaining their goal weights, people who are motivated to achieve their goals but are still able to engage in light, witty banter to keep things interesting. People from all walks of life and on all journeys are welcome.
For those interested in more personal details, I'm a 32y female with a long term supportive partner. I've been a vegetarian for 19y and am dabbling in veganism. Children may be in our future, but for right now we just have fur babies (who all love me the most, regardless of my partners claim that a dog is mans best friend).
If I sound like a good fit for you & vice versa, please contact me about being friends - I don't know how to add friends as I don't have any yet. Some instructual information on how to add friends would be great :)

    Welcome aboard!

    Having been through thyroid cancer back in 2000 I know what you're going through. All is well and if there's a cancer you could choose this would be the one. Very well researched and a known treatment regimen at this point. There are several elite level athletes with varying degrees of thyroid issues.

    Congratulations on your success - keep on this path and you will certainly hit your goal.

    Read the stickies to start with - these are collections of some of the best on MFP:

    Add me! I'm annoyingly bubbly and motivating. Can also be sarcastic, but I reserve those for special occasions, just as I like to do with treats ;)
