Kimberly H: The Bariatric Blogger - Looking back on the weightloss journey
In today’s interview episode, Janine speaks with independent blogger and bariatric patient Kimberly H. Kimberly has been documenting her bariatric journey on YouTube since 2014. She makes videos where she discusses her weight-loss surgery, reviews different foods and bariatric products, and provides motivation and encouragement for people in similar situations. Here’s a brief overview of the topics we discuss:
- The start of Kimberly’s weight-loss journey and what inspired her to seek out bariatric surgery.
- How bariatric patients’ relationship with food tends to change after surgery, and the pitfalls that can emerge from them.
- Pregnancy post-surgery, and the challenges that pregnancy can bring to the weight-loss process.
- The difference between a gastric sleeve and a mini-bypass, as well as the surgery that convert one to another.
