Describe your behavioral and emotional battle with weight control before learning about bariatric surgery.
I have been heavy all my life. Battled with being up and down. I have always had low self esteem, it's slowly getting better. I've always had the worst attitude knowing that I was fat and not being able to fit in with others cuz they were skinny and no one wanted to be around a fat person. It was very hard time. I even had gone so far as to try to commit suiside.
What was (is) the worst thing about being overweight?
The worst thing, not being accepted, not being able to do thing that other people could do. Like go eat and sit in a booth and not have your stomach touch the table, or being able to go to amusment parks and ride the rides cuz you didn't know if the lock that came down to hold you in would fit. Life is just not geared for fat people. It's more for skinny people.
If you have had weight loss surgery already, what things do you most enjoy doing now that you weren't able to do before?
Honestly, being able to cross my legs and put them under a table and sit like a girl. Being able to go to a resturant be able to sit in a booth rather then in a table and chair. Being able to play with kids and being able to move like you couldn't before. And mostley, not having to buy the biggest size shirt to cover your stomach!!!!
