This post follows on from last weeks Pre-op edition so…
Just like that another year has passed! I never imagined I would still have my blog and be posting to it four years after I started it. If you’ve been here from the beginning, thank you so much, I will never be able to convey how much your support means to me. If this is the first post you’ve ever read on my blog, hello and welcome, I hope you stick around!
I was just over a year out from my RNY Gastric Bypass and now I’m more than five years post-op. In some ways it seems like it was yesterday, but then at times I can struggle to remember exactly what life was like before. Leading up to surgery I never once stopped to consider what life would be like this far out from weight loss surgery. I’m doing well though, life is back to normal and while still a significant event in my life, my weight loss surgery is much less of a big deal than it was when I was going through it.
In the last year my posting frequency has been slower than ever before. Life has taken over and unfortunately my blog has had to be prioritized further down the list than it was before. Over the last year I’ve finished my professional coaching diploma, started my bariatric coaching business, Bariatric Gold, and have gone back to full-time work after having my second kid. It’s been full on and it’s not often I find the time and space in my brain to write.
It’s been an honour and a pleasure to share my journey and thoughts with you all. I have made some great friends through the common bond of being WLS buddies, in real life and online. The really awesome and nice messages and comments I get from readers still blows me away. I never thought the stuff that rolls around my head would resonate with anyone but it does and knowing I’ve helped others in their weight loss surgery journey is a treasure I’ll forever hold onto.
Happy birthday Melissa Loses It!
