I am not generally a moody person. I tend to be fairly upbeat most of the time, with occasional bouts of OCD. Since the surgery I have noticed my moods tend to fluctuate more than they used to. I don't know if this is because I was drowning these emotions with food in the past or if it is because of the hormone changes from surgery. The occasional bouts of unprovoked anxiety mean my house is cleaner than it has ever been. I have heard this is common after surgery and it is only recently that I started paying attention and notice that my moods are changing much more rapidly than they used to.


  1. I am pre-op, so no expert obviously, but I was told that this is very normal. Have you talked to your doc about it?

  2. Hi there, I just found your blog through bariatic babes. I think that for me post op my moods changed fairly quickly but have now settled down. Although I do think I tend to hit the wall quicker than what I used to.

  3. 1) No food as an outlet!
    2) Fat holds estrogen. Lose fat, estrogen gets released.

    = we're a hormonal mess! YAY!
