Obesity for many, myself included is emotional agony. I hated myself, I was disappointed in myself, mad at myself, I had an extreme sense of failure. I was so pre occupied with my emotional nightmare that I didn't give my health risks much thought. I'm 100% sure that had a not had surgery I would have remained obese with brief interruptions of yoyo dieting and that my health would become effected as I continued to gain and my life expectancy may well have been reduced.​​
