Hi all - I have not checked in too much in the last while, but drop in now and then. Maintaining 120# loss since 2013 RNY. Somehow along the way I found out that I really really like working out. Hard. I run, do a LOT of body weight exercises, swim, cy

I posted most of this on the RNY forum but wanted to add a note here as well, since I ended up getting a revision. Last week I woke in the most horrid pain in my stomach but I am 'tough' and I am NOT going to go the ER in the middle of the night. Right

Just a quick check-in as I've been away for a while and just realized that five years ago today I was in recovery from my RNY...one of the absolute best things I've ever done for myself. I'm still so happy about having the weight off, the increase of
