Hi! I’m Nikki – Nik, for short – and I’d like to welcome you to my journey of shedding weight, gaining perspective and the importance of learning to love yourself.

Why am I here? Well, the main experience that led me to sharing my story was having Gastric Bypass surgery on January 25, 2017. After spending a lifetime being obese and unhappy with myself, I decided to take charge of my life and make my own happiness – with my weight, and with the rest of my life.

That kind of independence and self-powered motivation is something that I hope to reflect through this journey – not just through weight loss, but through trauma healing and support, and engaging conversation with others.

Whether you are looking for low-carb recipes, support for WLS (Weight Loss Surgery), inspiration, trauma support or unique political insights, this is your stop!
