Kerry touching post comes after she opened up about her weight loss struggles.
She revealed she broke down in tears and was unable to leave the house after being left with a “lumpy, swollen body” following a botched tummy tuck.
The singer explained that she underwent a second tummy tuck and is now looking to the future after her confidence reached an all-time low.
Speaking about her despair at the time, Kerry told new magazine: “Looking at the before pictures, I just feel like it's not my body. It makes me feel angry and frustrated. I was so swollen. I'm not exaggerating when I say every minute of every day, all I could think about was my body.
“I was constantly wearing baggy clothes. I couldn't wear anything tight, I felt so self-conscious. My stomach has bothered me for so long. I've been in tears over it. At points, I didn't even want to leave the house and be seen. My confidence was at an all-time low. I didn't want anyone to see my body.”
Now, Kerry is feeling ready to get in shape again after the op, adding: “I wanted to get rid of my lumpy, swollen belly, and now I'm on a mission.
"I turn 43 in September and I can promise you now, I will be at my goal weight. I'm adamant! I can't wait to feel like me again.”
Over the past 18 years Kerry has had a raft of cosmetic surgeries beginning with a boob job in 2004 after her split from Westlife’s Brian.
She previously joked that she's had so much surgery on her body that it's like a flat-pack from Ikea.
