6.5 years post-op and checking in!

on 7/11/14 5:57 am - Baltimore, MD

Hey everyone,


The RNY forum was on my mind today so I decided to stop just thinking about the board and visit! I see many names I remember. The rest of you are like “who the hell is she?” Which is ok too!


I’m 6.5 years post-op now, obviously still involved in the community through Bariatric Foodie but working to re-lose some regain (it’s coming off…SLOWLY…but it’s coming off).


Over the past year I’ve really been focusing on what’s sustainable for me and what’s not. I’ve stopped doing forms of exercise I don’t like doing. These days I mostly do weight lifting, boot camp, spin and a little boxing. I’m kinda aggressive.


Not sure if I mentioned on my last check in I have a boyfriend now! We’ve been together about a year and some change. I think he may be the one but don’t tell him because I’m non-committal. My formerly-little divas aren’t so little anymore: my oldest daughter is 15.5, youngest is 12.


At any rate, it’s good to have this place as home base. I look forward to poking through some of the threads and contributing where I can!

Really glad to hear that things are going well for you and the divas Nik.  Have to admit it was pretty awesome to log on and see you had started a thread!
