Describe your behavioral and emotional battle with weight control before learning about bariatric surgery.
It's been a lifelong battle. As most overweight people do, I had tried every possible diet and diet pill. I gained the majority of my weight during my pregnancies. It has been a struggle almost all my adult life.
What was (is) the worst thing about being overweight?
The worst thing about being overweight is not being able to be an active parent. As my weight increased, my ability to participate in my daughters' activities decreased.
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 enjoy everything more now. No aches, no pains. I have no excuses.
