Almost 15 Months Out-Progress Pictures-Exercise is Your Best Friend

by Christie13 on 01-28-2018 at 12:49 PM
So I am happy to report that I am almost 15 months out (2/3/18) and have been in maintenance for a while now. So far it has been easy. I love to run and strength train. It makes me feel strong. I think it helps make maintenance easier. I also have noticed a considerable amount of improvement in my loose skin due to exercising, especially around my knees. I am not embarrassed to wear shorts or skirts. I know it will continue to improve with continued exercise and good nutrition. I cannot stress

I am sooo very excited. So much good going on in my life. I have one more week left in my old department then I start training for my new job. I will be working as a First Party Injury Adjuster.

Also, I already know 3 people who will be on my new team so that is exciting as well. So I

I was very specific on the model, too. Just to make sure Santa got the right one. Funny thing is in my old age I make sure to ask for what I want. So I got one...I was so "surprised". LOL.

2018 is starting out fabulously!

by Christie13 on 01-03-2018 at 10:52 PM
So as many of you know, I interviewed for a promotion at work a while back. Didn't get it but it was great to be interviewed since they only interviewed 25 out of over 250 applicants. There are more positions opened so I applied again. Today I got an instant message to contact the hiring manager. I figured she had a question regarding something on my resume. Instead she told me that I did not need to interview and that they were offering me one of the 11 positions that are opened this time.

Poop TMI-Caution Turn Back Now if you can't handle it....

by Christie13 on 12-17-2017 at 09:02 AM
OMFG!!! I had the worst experience yesterday. To give a little back story, I had some real constipation issues the first 10 months post op. It was not fun but I was I dealt with it. I have been regular since then.
Shoot forward to yesterday. I've been going these last few days but maybe not as "much". And I have been really good on my fluid intake so no issues there. Most of my fluid comes from water because I have always been a big water drinker. Anyways, I really had
