Lauren’s Journey to a New Life

When asked how the first year was, Lauren happily recalls “I had zero complications. No food aversions. I was actually a little ahead of the pace typically seen by DS patients.” What wasn’t quite as easy was dealing with the underlying issues that had plagued her for so much of her life. “I’m a stress-eater. I turn to food for comfort.” Lauren shares that dealing with it was by far the most difficult part of her weight loss journey. She needed to find a positive way to deal with stress in her life.
