I find myself not going anywhere because I'll be the fattest person in the room

It's been a long time since I have seen someone as large as me in the same room. Lots of times I will just stay at home because I'll be the only fat person in the restaurant and I feel ashamed to order food.

I would tend to doubt it on the weight loss medications. Seroquel is a tough one for weight gain. I have seen that gain with a few friends/ relatives.

How difficult is the diet, for gastric sleeve surgery, to stick to?

Ive researched the surgery quite extensively and the diet is extremely minimal. Which i understand. However i love food. The textures. The smell. And of course the taste. Im scared that i would not be able to stick with such a minimal diet for a year. Pluss once the weight is lost how does one not regain the weight once a regular diet is reintroduced? I dont know anyone personaly whoes had this done. Im afraid its the only option i have left.

Anyone looking for a revision?

I am 16 years out from a roux en y bypass. I have gained a hundred pounds back, but still am 95 pounds less than my starting point.
