Shirley shares about how she helped her husband feel comfortable with her decision to have bariatric surgery, and talks about the sometimes comical journey of life post-op, from tossing her size 22 duds to hiding excess skin and feeling like an imposter in her new, thinner frame. She also offers insights on how to manage life’s challenges without turning to food, and maintain the daily disciplines to stay on the road to success while living in the real world.

Louisa Mary Ann April 6, 2009 I was glad to hear Shirley’s daily food regimen. It gave me hope. I’m only 2 months out and seem to be eating the same things constantly. These stories are a real inspiration to me.
