Obesity & Me

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

It has been a very long emotional,physical battle with my weight. I'm 32 years old and approx 320 lbs.. I have been overweight pretty much my entire life. I'm tired of being on antidepressants along with bp meds (which makes me even more sleepy) .. I'm tired of everything that comes with being overweight .. I want to be healthy play with my kids..go to the movies and not worrying about if I'm going to fit into a seat..

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

My worst thing is going to the back of the store to the bigger sizes... bathing suit shopping VERY bad.. and wondering everytime you go somewhere if your going to fit into the seats of wherever you go.. so in return I ate more from being depressed all the time..

If you have had weight loss surgery already, what things do you most enjoy doing now that you weren't able to do before?
