Dr. Kurian is fantastic. She performed a great surgery, I had a great recovery and everyday I feel better. She took the time to hear my questions and concerns and gave me great tips.
Thank you so much.

Describe your behavioral and emotional battle with weight control before learning about bariatric surgery.
I used to eat large portions of food and I had much difficulty stopping when I was full. I was able to lose weight if I deprived myself of some types of food and ate small portions, but I was hungry most of the time and I craved the foods I could not eat. So I could not stay on a diet for more than 8 months. Every year I lost about 10 pounds but then I gained at least 15, so I was in the perpetual yo-yo diet.

I struggled with the issue of weight my entire life and finally got to the point of weighting twice my ideal weight. I finally decided to have the vertical sleeve surgery because I realized that I would never gain the battle of the yo-yo diet by myself. In the past, I was able to lose weight if I deprived myself of many types of food and if I managed to eat small portions, but as soon as I returned to "normal" portions and eating all kinds of food my weight would go up as well.
I felt miserable because I did not feel attractive and I did not have energy to do anything. Now I feel great!. I have so much more stamina, my blood pressure went to normal levels as well as my cholesterol....and I look great!. I have lost 40 lbs but I have to lose 60 more. Anyway, I feel and I look great and I can't eat more....I don't feel hungry, I can eat small portions of everything I want and lose weight.
I am so happy with my surgery and the results so far.
