Thank you Dr. Oz

Dr Oz on Weight Loss Surgery: "Yes. Listen, if you're one hundred pounds overweight at age fifty, you have the same mortality rate as if you have a solid cancer. Would you operate for cancer?"

He's an advocate for gastric bypass surgery, which he hopes will grow in the near future as a tool for in helping to fight obesity:

"I think gastric bypass surgery will play a big role. We probably do only 1% of the gastric bypass surgeries we should do."

As a community I think we really needed this positive press... what a wonderful change from the "she lost it without surgery" articles and celebrities hiding the fact they had surgical assistance. Dr. Oz I always liked you but now ❤

Thank you. Best decision I ever made.

The quotes above are from this month's Prevention Magazine on newsstands today. Show your support and be sure to pick up a copy. Here's a few excerpts online from yesterday's USA Today. A few of the comments ticked me off and cause I must smack down/educate that sort of stuff (the NY girl in me) I commented too ;)
