I am now a "Kiwi"! I arrived in NZ a little over 6 years ago. I live on Waiheke Island. I am originally from Baltimore, Maryland in the U.S. Anybody out there from New Zealand that wants to chatter away?

I feel good, I'm slightly biased due to having gall stones right now! Not impressed - so I've been in some pain, sore back, nauseous etc for a while now! But beforehand I felt great! My pain after surgery was very minimal! I'm able to eat anything & everything, very lucky (obviously in moderation and very small amounts lol) I have had the gall stones thing for months now, for quite some time it went unnoticed and I wondered why I felt so strange but now I understand!

I've been unfortunate to get these gall stones but.. I've lost 40kg and pretty over the moon about that! Have more energy, love exercise!, have no desire for food (most of the time), fit clothes in EVERY store - for someone who was overweight their whole life that is fantastic :-) so look forward to what's to come! We all have our ups and downs but I've had MANY more ups than downs. I love life these days :-)
