103 lbs. Healthier
 
“I’ve been very successful with my surgery. I don’t regret doing it one bit.”
 
 
Karen VandeHey, 103 pounds healthier

Interviewer: Tell us about your experience with weight loss surgery.

Karen: I had a different type of bariatric surgery 23 years ago. At that time, when they did the surgery, there wasn’t the follow-up that there is now. So, whatever problems you had, habits you had, nobody tried to change that. It was like they cut off your stomach, sent you home and said, “Oh, you’re going to lose weight,
”When you get to the point of being 100 pounds overweight, that’s just monumentous.”
you’re going to be fine for the rest of your life.” You were pretty much on your own.

I did really well for awhile. But, I was a stress eater. It didn’t make any difference if it was good stress or bad stress. It was the reward. Eventually, I started to put on the weight again. I went back to trying the Dexatrim pills and the whole gamut of that crap. And then, when you get to the point of being 100 pounds overweight, that’s just monumentous.
