Kristin Lloyd is a social worker that struggled with her weight, so she had bariatric surgery. She now offers counseling to others who are going through the surgery process.
She is relatable and her vast experience makes her a great candidate to teach others about bariatric surgery. In her book, she shares her personal experiences, advice on how to succeed, and warnings about common pitfalls.
My favorite quote from the book is, “Having weight loss surgery is the first step in breaking out of the victim cycle, because this means you are acting and doing something to take back control over yourself and your life.”
