Woman lost 180 lbs but is still unhappy

Jen Larsen dreamed about being skinny and lost a staggering 180 pounds but is still unhappy with her appearance.

Once she had bariatric surgery she said being thin did not make her happy.

Doctors say many overweight people believe that losing the weight will solve their problems but it often does not.

"Obese people live with the illusion, or the fairytale, that if they lost the weight their lives would be better, but what happens is when they lose the buffer, they feel that people are scrutinizing them," said Bethany Marshal, Ph.D.

Larsen says she does not regret having weight loss surgery and even admits life is easier now.

She hopes others will look beyond their body size to find true happiness.
