My husband is not supportive of my decision to have weight loss surgery. In fact, he is adamantly against it. I am so upset and disappointed over his reaction.

Has anyone else gone through this? How did you move past it?

My husband had the surgery before I did, and I was the not sure one. I'm 100% happy I had the surgery and that he did, we are both healthier with the weight off.

Has your husband got a specific reason why he is admantly against the surgery?

My husband wasn't sure at first but once he went to the seminar with me and heard how much higher my risk of cancer was due to the weight he got on board.
