Describe your behavioral and emotional battle with weight control before learning about bariatric surgery.
I don’t even know where to start,
I don’t even remember my life without the weight issue coming up in my everyday life.
As a teenager, I was one of those that looked developed then others and always the one that men will smile and looking at my curves at the age of 12.
I could see fear in my mother’s eyes but could express her fear to me. So she keep me close to her and punishing me on what I was doing wrong with the hope that I would to change.
I never like rules in my life, my way was to let me do the wrong by myself and learn from it then you telling me what to do.
I’m weak emotionally; always cry when I’m happy and sad. I think my enemy is myself I have a such expectation on myself and I’m my worst critic .
At 31 years old married and no child, and still struggling with the same demon of me cooking food and eating them without measuring them.
I always joke with my sister that we could had put the money we spend on pills ,diet program that we could had been a millionaire by know! Lol.
On my 31st birthday we got a call from Ontario biatric program on Humber River advising us that I and my sister were to attend a biatric meeting on Humber River.
As the procedure were painful for me given that I didn’t like some of the people that I had to see.
So finally I had started my pre-op shake on the 12th of June and it is the hardest part to see everybody eat around me.
