I wasn’t overweight growing up, so I always felt like there was a thin person inside of me. It sounds weird, but internally I didn’t feel fat.
Finally I said, “I’ve tried it all, and there’s no shame in taking the next step.” The doctor who ultimately did my procedure explained that obesity risks are much greater than the risks for this surgery.
I can’t do any core work for six months because I’m still healing. So my trainer has me hiking and walking. I hate working out, but if I don’t, I’m going to get flabby skin, so better safe than sorry.
