Describe your behavioral and emotional battle with weight control before learning about bariatric surgery.
I was always a big girl, I do not ever remember being under 200lbs. I learned how to make it work. I never wanted it to be an excuse. I would refuse to let my weight define me. I was very confident in my skin and never suffered from low self-esteem. Sounds good does'nt it, well it does have its set backs. Denial stepped in and I found myself at a whopping 375lbs. That was my eye opener.
What was (is) the worst thing about being overweight?
Some of the worst things about being overweight is having to worry about seating, taking up a seat and a half on the airplane and irritating the person sitting next to you who have to sit in a half of a seat (LOL sad but true), worring about fitting in the seats at the doctors office, at the movies ect., getting out of breath easily, the aches and pains in my back and knees, and not having energy to do the things I love to do.
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 have not had the surgery yet. My date is February 28th, which is three weeks from now. I am excited and cannot wait. I look forward to being a healthier me.
