Describe your behavioral and emotional battle with weight control before learning about bariatric surgery.
I have struggled with weight issues my whole life. I could walk past a water fountain and gain five pounds!! I loved food and ate all the wrong things.
What was (is) the worst thing about being overweight?
Not being able to play with my Grandchildren.
If you have had weight loss surgery already, what things do you most enjoy doing now that you weren't able to do before?
Exercise. Before my surgery I could not walk 100 feet without getting out of breath. I couldn't play with my grandchildren and life was generally miserable. No energy and no desire to move. I am still a little unsteady on my feet because I am adjusting to being lighter but being able to move without extreme fatigue and loss of breath is just wonderful. Life is new again and I feel wonderful.
