Client B1
This was my life before Gastric-Bypass surgery. I was 293 pounds and miserable. I could not walk up a flight of stairs without huffing and puffing. I could not fit in airplane or movie theater seats. I barely fit the seat belt around myself in the car. I sweat day and night on hot summer days. I dreaded weighing myself on my scale. I had no energy to go to the gym. I t took me almost an hour to get out of bed in the morning. Because of this, I was late for work a lot. I would get 10-12 hours of sleep on the weekend and still wake up exhausted. I would fall asleep several times on the couch watching television. I could not keep up with anyone when walking. I was very lonely and depressed. I tried every diet possible but nothing seemed to work. I kept gaining more weight every year. Finally, I told myself enough is enough. I had to do something before I could die of a possible heart attack or stroke. I was petrified of dying. My mother died of cancer at age 64 and my father died of a massive heart attack at age 57. I told myself this is my last chance to survive. I refused to reach 300 pounds.
