Obesity & Me

Describe your behavioral and emotional battle with weight control before learning about bariatric surgery.

I just could not get the weight off no matter what I did. I was diabetic and felt so stuck!

What was (is) the worst thing about being overweight?

I didn't have the energy I wanted to have and knew my health was suffering.

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 do soooo much more now! I have more energy than any of my grown kids. I felt different almost immediately after my surgery. I am celebrating my five year aniversary and have kept off all my weight. I do have a little change in shape around the middle but that is due to menopause. I was in a size 4-6 pants and now it is a 6-8. My weight has stayed within about four pounds so I am happy:)
