I am currently researching my options for bariatric surgery and was hoping someone could give me some advice.
I’m super afraid of failing at my surgery. Let me back up a bit. I have been overweight almost my whole life. Middle school was awful, let me tell you. I am now 28, I’ve tried every diet strategy under the sun and nothing has worked. I’m also a 1st grade teacher, so as you can imagine, I am running around quite a bit. I almost always hit my 10,000 steps by the end of the day! But, still, I can’t seem to get down to the weight I want. I’ve gotten pretty close before, but then I ballooned back up. It’s so hard to keep the weight off!!
So, it’s looking more and more like bariatric surgery is my last remaining option. But, I’ve been reading a bunch of failure stories from people getting surgery, both the sleeve and the bypass, and it’s gotten in my head a little bit. I was hoping someone might have some advice for me about how to avoid bypass and sleeve failure. Any strategies would be much appreciated!
