I'm glad that I've found this thread. I'm overweight and a doctor suggested going through surgery. To be honest, I don't want to do it, so I decided to lose weight by changing my nutrition (I'm on this diet now https://betterme.wоrld/articles/dieta-de-1200-calorias/) and doing exercises. I understand that it will take time, but I do hope for a good result. Anyway, thanks for sharing your experience, guys.
