Flying while Overweight

It’s the holiday season, which means there is a lot of travel going on. This used to cause me severe anxiety when I was at my heaviest because I felt like I could not travel to see my loved ones.

It takes time to truly learn your new lifestyle after the procedure, which can make the holiday season a little harder.
