Abstract
In this research project, I complicate simplistic biomedical constructions of WLS by relying on lived experiences of the procedure and demonstrate that WLS is both the result of and a contributor to larger sociocultural phenomena related to fatness. How do WLS recipients enact concepts relevant to their daily practices, such as will, appetite, and habit?
