Hello from Amsterdam! Yes, I know it has been a very long time since I posted anything here on my blog. Years in fact. So that means most of my readers have had their surgery or are now, like me, veterans. I sincerely hope your journey has been as positive and exciting as mine has been.
I am now almost six years out, with a breast reduction (so happy about that one!) and tummy tuck (glad I had it done, but not as happy with it as the breasts). I managed to stay at my goal weight for most of that time, but this past 18 months I put some back on … gained 8 lbs but have now lost 3 of that, so I feel confident I can get back there again.
I’m writing today because I was invited for an interview with Reeger Cortell, who produces the Weight Loss Surgery Podcast. Reeger is a Nurse Practitioner at a weight loss clinic in Oregon and an all-around wonderful and funny woman! We had a great time on the podcast, and if you are not already listening to her weekly podcasts, I encourage you to do so. They are fascinating and informative—her guests are always interesting and she is so knowledgeable in this field. I learn something every time I listen. And please support her podcast if you can!
You can click on the image below to hear my interview. If you haven’t read my book, it will give you an overview of my weird journey into this life-saving decision.
By the way, I’m still living in Amsterdam and loving it here. Hope you have found your own joy as well.
