Today I turned on foxtel to the lifestyle channel and there was a show on called Supersized Kids (i think it was called that)
But anyway this show I recorded and have kept to watch if I start to go off track.
There was a story of a 16 year old girl who was morbidly obese and getting Gastric Bypass with her mother who was also morbidly obese. (I hate that label!)
It showed the actual operations, inside and out of the two ladies. Seeing all the fat attached to the organs and the Doctor was good and explained what he was doing throughout the operations.
Both ladies had a great success with wieght loss and interviewed several months later looked fantastic.
But at what cost? To never be able to eat food normally again, and to be in so much pain. I looked into it before starting BT when my GYNO suggested I look into it. I do have a friend who had it done and was talking to me about it, but I can not afford it. Thankful that I can not becasue after reading all the facts and seeing what happens ...
The other lady featured on the show was a 22 year old who had worked hard for 12 months eating write and going to the gym everyday. She lost (I think) 8 stone?
She had so much extra skin on her body that the Dr said it was the worst he had ever dealt with. Poor thing had no boobs just flaps and the extra skin was like nothing I had ever seen before.
They too showed the operation, showed them peeling her skin off, cutting the unwanted amounts and sewing back in position. Including cutting out her belly button and putting it back in place.
I cried, then went for an hour walk!
Please Please Please let BT work. I want my life back!
