Describe your behavioral and emotional battle with weight control before learning about bariatric surgery.
I was miserable...I would smile but I was never really happy. I would always lose about 30 pounds then gain back twice that. I looked at WLS for 6 years it finally took me being embarrassed and hurt. I was trying on clothes and for me to be seen in pants that I could not get passed my thighs and a shirt that looked like it was ready to rip if I exhaled for me to hit my rock bottom. The comment made was OMG...Deborah...How big are you!? That was when I said I had enough.
Latest Surgery Support Comments
I am 30-something mother and wife for the moment. I have tried since 93 when my daughter was born to lose weight. It seems for every 20 pounds that I would lose I would later gain it back twice fold. I have been through a divorce from my daughter’s biological father and the torment that he put me through. I have remarried and have not been happy with me, I have not been the person that I know I am on the inside. I want this surgery! I want it to make me healthy and happy again. I am twice as big as I am supposed to be based on my body size. I cannot walk up or down stairs without feeling totally winded. I have started having serious heartburn. I have varicose veins which look like they are about to explode at any moment. I have to find chairs that do not have arms on them because I have a hard time sitting in the ones that do have arms. My family has a long history of weight problems along with high blood pressure, heart attacks and diabetes. My parents and my sister are all considered morbidly obese, which is what I am. They are happy with their choices but I am not. I want to be able to run and not feel like I am going to die from all the excess weight that is shifting. I want to be able to go to the amusement park and not be hurting when they lock me into a roller coaster seat and not put on fun and happy face knowing that I can not breathe and I’m being pinched off. I want to be healthy again. I know that this is the best option for me….I want to live again!
