by reeger on November 15, 2015




After a lifetime of struggling with obesity, Pandora Williams underwent Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass on October 19th, 2010. Now, five years later and through a lot of hard work and dedication, she is a fitness and wellness coach, blogger, avid runner, and motivational speaker. In this episode with interviewer Rob Portinga, Pandora tells her story of how she went from “digging a grave with a fork and a spoon” to just having completed her fifteenth(1) half marathon and what she’s training for next. There are so many great gems of wisdom in this episode so be sure to listen all the way to the very end because Pandora keeps delivering her important message of healing through feeling your feelings and using those feelings to fuel your fitness.

I am so happy to have found this podcast. I am contemplating the Gastric Sleeve, and I go back and forth on the decision on a daily (and sometimes hourly) basis. Thank you for making these conversations readily available.

Dear Finding, Many people struggle with similar fears and concerns. Might I suggest looking into Dr May’s program “Am I Hungry?” This may offer you some of the behavior modification and “thought-tools” you are seeking to support yourself after bariatric surgery. Kindly, Reeger
