Speaking of information valuable for your journey, bariatric psychologist Dr. Connie joins me in two weeks to talk about relationships. You’ve asked in the facebook group and you want to know how relationships, especially marriages, change after surgery. We’ll dig into it.

Why are you still hungry after a meal when you feel like you should be satisfied? Our wonderful bodies can be complicated and several factors can affect your hunger.
