An interview with the patient, "I rethought my life"
I was completely hidden fat. You know, like in the popular advertising, it seemed to me that I have big bones. And in this I see the problem. I was 23, I went to the University as an economist. I did not have friends because I did not want to just be someone's shadow. I went through all the recommendations of nutritionists - drink plenty of water, count calories. I did not have these tricks, and I threw them. In the end, the "stop" I said to my mother, who decided to send me on a gastric bypass surgery in Israel. I traveled to Assuta in the firm conviction that nothing good will come of our venture ...

No, I was a very active child, involved in gymnastics, dance in elementary school. When I quit training for health reasons, the weight began to arrive. It was hard to have a lot of teasing classmates. I was not like the others. You know, it created the impression that we are all sailing on the river, but I am against the current.
- What weight made you decide to radically change their lives?
At that time, my weight was 112 kg 600 c. Imagine in 23 years ... I do not want to live, I could not enjoy life, have fun, as my peers. It seemed to me that nothing good ahead will be gone.

At the present time - 77 kg 800 gr. But I was not enough, I want more. Very grateful to doctors for a successful start, I do not want to stop on the way to the goal (laughs).

Learn to eat. Yes exactly. It was difficult, because hunger is not felt. The first three weeks I was sitting on a liquid diet and jelly. Some part of me wanted to try other food, but I said to myself, a firm "no."
- What was the most memorable after surgery?
My pants! They fell down with me. It's a great feeling to know that your stuff yesterday now you big. And, of course, now I can go to regular stores - not special boutiques for fat people. It's great!
