Surgeon TestimonialGerardo Gomez, M.D.Very impressed with his demeanor. He was quick to answer any questions, had a sense of humor and was very thorough and informative. His office staff was great! Especailly Sue, who went out of her way to help! I am very confident that all will go well with this doctor and staff.

Describe your behavioral and emotional battle with weight control before learning about bariatric surgery.
I fought the battle of Obesity all my life, weighing in at 36 pounds at 4 months of age. I was an emotional eater, I ate when I was depressed, bored, stressed, happy,,I ATE! I tried every diet , and lost weight, only to regainit again. I felt like it was hopeless.

Not because of cooking or cleaning or family coming,,but because I know Im going to eat,,and probably gain some weight. That depresses me, because I feel like a weakling and a WLS failure. I have gained 20 pounds and hate every one of em. I have two closets of clothes that no longer fit,,and when I try em on its just a couple inches that is stopping me from wearing them and that frustrates me.
Im lazy when it comes to exercise...but I have this mental block that tells me that I cannot lose weight now because of my age..62. And part of me says why bother,,be a great grandma and relax..nobody cares anyway. Do I sound depressed?? Well,,I am, in this area.
My daughter is going to school to be a personal trainer and she told me to just be careful through the holidays but to enjoy them,,and then on Jan 2nd hit the basics hard and get back on track. I think thats what I will do. I will accumulate a pantry full of protein shakes and tuna and canned chicken and cases of water and such,,and start my walking again. I have to...I cant take this feeling of failure. Ill start journaling too,,keeping track. Maybe I will make Easter a goal date,,to wear those clothes in the closet that I havent worn in a year.
Anyway,,whatever,,I know I have the tool,,I still get sick on certain foods and dump occasionally. So, its up to me to face the reality that I gotta do this,,nobody else can do it for me.
So, Ill bite the bullet,,(and a lot of other stuff,),Ill fillup on protein and only leave a little room for the carbs and treats,,,I hope. Oh well,,this too shall pass,,,,
Happy Holidays everyone!
