Product description

Product Description

All of us get to this place of being morbidly obese for different reasons: emotional eating when we’re upset, sad or emotional, and even happy, childhood trauma, being addicted to the taste of food, or having a genetic predisposition to weight issues.

I spent most of my life trying to lose weight, from childhood into adulthood. No diet or exercise plan seemed to work. By the time I was pregnant with my second child, I was over 200 pounds when I gave birth. That was the point where my medical problems began to increase. I remember being unable to get out of bed and feeling like the worst mom on the planet. I could barely accomplish the minimal for my kids during those years. What I wanted was transformational weight loss.

The next time I went to the doctor, I cautiously brought up the weight loss surgery idea. I expected he would argue with me and say it was the easy way out or that he was against it. Instead, he looked at me and said I would be an ideal candidate for the surgery. I began a new season in my life, fighting my way back to health.

In this book, I will share my personal journey through obesity, bariatric surgery, and the rough recovery. I’ll tell you all the good and the bad of the process. And in spite of it all, I would do it
again a million times over. However, I made a lot of mistakes along the way, and my hope is that you can have consider your own weight loss surgery options and start down the road to your recovery and live your own magnificent life.
