Describe your behavioral and emotional battle with weight control before learning about bariatric surgery.
For years I felt I was fighting against my own body. I felt trapped by my weight. I knew I could do so many things in my life but I always felt my weight was holding me back. I was depressed to see myself and loathed shopping for clothes. I felt I was not living but merely existing.
What was (is) the worst thing about being overweight?
Not being able to enjoy life. A beautiful sunny day meant nothing to me. I am post op and still very overweight but at least now there is hope. Before surgery there was no hope.
If you have had weight loss surgery already, what things do you most enjoy doing now that you weren't able to do before?
I can run now and enjoy it...I love playing with my sons and hiking.
