Claire Is Planning to Have Weight-Loss Surgery to Help Her BED
After years of dieting and gaining and losing weight again and again, Claire decided this was her last chance. She has decided to have gastric sleeve surgery where surgeons cut your stomach to the size of a banana so she won't physically be able to binge.
"I didn't make the decision lightly and have done so much research on it," Claire said. "I have talked to hundreds of people with BED who have had the surgery and their lives have changed forever." Claire is currently on the pre-op diet, and her health insurance is giving her money toward the surgery.
"I'm ready for this life-changing operation. I will use it as a tool to get me as healthy as possible and to stop me from bingeing," Claire said. She'll be seeing a psychologist regularly after the procedure to keep her and her BED on track since the surgery is only on her stomach and it won't change her brain.
