Starting today, BariatricPal is proud to present a free, one-week online screening of  All of Me -- the award-winning, insightful documentary that follows the varied experiences of three women before and after weight loss surgery. 
 
All of Me aired on PBS and was critically praised by the New York Times, the  Wall Street Journal and bariatric specialists. See below for more about the film.
 
The free screening is available on our website from Saturday, January 23, through  Friday, January 29. 
 
You can watch the film as often as you like during that week. A DVD of the film is also available to purchase at a special member discount.
 
If you're contemplating surgery, the film will give you insights to help prepare for the psychological and social changes, along with the physical. 
 
If you've already had surgery, you will likely see some familiar themes and experiences and know you're not alone. 
 
The free screening is being offered in collaboration with Alexandra Lescaze, the film’s producer, and The Video Project, the film’s distributor.
 
We’re excited to offer  All of Me for your viewing, and hope the stories of these three women will help you on your personal journey.

Just watched this.  A few insightful remarks here and there.  I have seen the episode with Zsalynn in my "600lb life" and she's one of the "woe is me" and didn't follow instructions.  One scene where the woman (forgot her name) made a sort of pancake and scrambled egg mix and shovelled a huge forkful into her mouth- and my first thought was "that's gonna come up!!" Been there a few times especially when I've been very hungry.  I guess this forum is good that you can come back and celebrate the losses and commiserate one the gains and encouragement to get  to the end. The fact is that when your are "normal" people do treat you differently and sometimes the fat kids don't want to play with you any more because you have achieved what they haven't.  

When I was young, a fat person really stood out-I can only remember only 1 fat girl in high school.  Today, there a few kids who walk to school or play outside and most go home to an  afternoon team of sugary or salty snacks.

I rented it from itunes. Was very insightful. It just reinforced that those of us with weight problems will never be able to eat what we want band or no band. Ozchick I thought the same as you. All of those women except for one had the the wrong attitude.

I feel sorry for the ones trying to succeed whilst being married to feeders/enablers - Zsalynn's husband in particular was especially jerky in this respect.

Thanks for the link - such a good reminder to us all that weight loss surgery is tough, an ongoing struggle at best.
