I'm a three time cancer survivor, with the latest one being thyroid cancer in 2007. Living without a thyroid has proven to be more difficult than any of the cancers. After losing my thyroid I gained about 40 lbs and a host of other medical issues that drs tell us thycans (that's a thyroid cancer survivor) cannot be related to the loss of our thyroid. So, here I am, fighting a fight my drs say doesn't exist. I'll beat this fight just like I have everything else, and I hope to help others in the process.

Member Since: 7/27/2002

Fitness Minutes: 85

My Goals:
I want to stop making excuses, eat more whole foods, and exercise consistently (i.e. daily).


My Program:
Having just joined up, I'm not doing much to meet my goals yet. I already try to keep my food choices healthy, and I also walk as much as possible instead of driving. I have joined a gym, and I have also mapped out some good walking trails near my home.



Personal Information:
My name is Rene and I'm originally from Missouri. I now live in Lenexa, Kansas, near Kansas City.


Other Information:
I love the outdoors and am an avid naturalist. I'm a lacto-ovo vegetarian (eggs and milk okay), but I'm married to the typical meat-and-potatoes-no-veggies guy. I am a three time cancer survivor (lung, cervical and thyroid), and I credit my generally healthy lifestyle with the great outcomes of each. After the thyroid cancer I've gained about 30 lbs that I am struggling with, so I have joined this group to get (and give) that extra boost of motivation.
