It's been forever and two days since I stopped by so I figured I'd come by and say, "hey!"

Not sure if anyone here still knows me! But at any rate I used to frequent these boards a long time ago. I had RNY 9 years ago and lost a total of 155 lbs, re-found 40 of those pounds and have re-lost about 15.

These days life is pretty routine. I'm like an ant. I have the things I do, the stuff I eat, and I don't deviate too, too much. My weight has been fairly stable at about 200 lbs. (give or take a few pounds) and a size 12/14 for the past five years. In all truth, I ain't mad at that. I like me now more than I ever have before. The only deviation from this weight pattern happened last year when I got a very early stage breast cancer, but as soon as I got through my treatment for that (which, thankfully, was resolved with a bilateral mastectomy so no further treatment needed) my weight basically went back to 200 which is what I honestly think is my set point now.

At any rate, thought I'd say hey and poke around the forums and get to know folks. Don't mind me! If I get to be a pain in the butt feel free to kick me back out! ;)

Good to see you again, Nik! I have mostly stopped coming due to life itself getting in the way, but do drop by once in a while.

Boy, this site has changed A LOT!

Hello! Recently, a local gal, also about the same length post-WLS, had sudden regain after her breast cancer ordeal. The surgeon discovered and took care of a fistula. I am anxious to hear how she's doing since revision. My relative, who had WLS at the University of Minnesota back in the dark ages, just turned 80 years old. She maintained her weight all these years but recently dropped another 25 pounds by her words, "giving up that damn bread." Damn that cancer. Damn that bread.

Damn that!

Bread makes my blood sugar go kind of crazy so much as I love it...we had to break up a little bit. I can do things like English muffins if they are toasted and have protein on them, and I do sometimes. But just regular, bready, bread...sigh...no...
