One of the aspects of gastric sleeve surgery that’s seldom talked about is the psychological changes that occur before and after surgery.
Before surgery, my self-esteem was zilch, nada, nothing, zero.
There were times I felt invisible, hopeless, and shitty.
In hindsight, my excess weight not only affected me physically but it also affected me mentally and emotionally. It also affected the relationships I had with my spouse, my friends, and my family.
No matter how much self-loathing I experienced or how poor my self-esteem was, I knew that any weight-related changes I decided to make would have to be because I wanted to make them.
Peer pressure was not going to be the reason I decided to have weight loss surgery.
“I” was going to be the reason I had weight loss surgery.
Want to be a weight loss surgery failure?
Have the surgery because you want to make someone else happy.
Let’s chat some more about the changes I’ve experienced pre and post gastric sleeve surgery.
Let’s get all the hard stuff out in the open. Watch the video below.
