I learned a lot about WLS by watching videos on YouTube, both from doctors and patients. With patients, it was especially helpful to see the entire progression of their journey, from the first week after surgery, through to reaching their goal, and sometimes plastic surgery.
Here's a list of some of the vloggers I found most helpful. In each case I've suggested a video to start with, but check out their channel for more videos.

Which vloggers have you found helpful?
Those are all vloggers I watched pre op and continued following even though there isn't as much new content. I think they each offered different insight that I found helpful. The other things I watch are fitness and health related but not bariatric specific and definitely not for everyone. I do think that one core element that they all have in common is being very honest channels and that is not for everyone.
