Weight stigma and healthcare

Have you ever felt like your doctor treated you differently or made unfair assumptions about you because of your weight?

  1. Pre weight loss surgery, everything would be better "if you only lost weight".
    I did, nearly 300 pounds.
    Medical treatment for another condition improved, but my life didn't.

    1. Hi . I am glad your other health condition improved, but I wish your doctor hadn't made you feel weight loss would have such a profound effect on the rest of your life. Circumstances don't change simply because your weight changes and neither do the people in your life. Please know we are here for you whenever you need support or a place to vent. Gentle hugs. - Lori (Team Member)
