Describe your behavioral and emotional battle with weight control before learning about bariatric surgery.
I did not like being overweight, but I was pretty happy overall. I don't know that I had an emotional battle going on.
What was (is) the worst thing about being overweight?
Not being able to do the fun things I wanted to do. Not wearing the cute clothes, having to watch as others went off to have fun and knowing I could not go. Being too embarassed to wear shorts or a swimming suit, or even a tank top when it was hot out.
If you have had weight loss surgery already, what things do you most enjoy doing now that you weren't able to do before?
Everything. Everything is easier, everything is more fun. I do not look at whether or not I will look silly or be able to fit, or if people are going to be looking at me or if I will get too tired too fast.
