dc.description.abstractThis study is grounded in a phenomenological lifeworld perspective. It aims at providing rich descriptions of lived experience of the process of losing weight after obesity surgery. Two women participated in in-depth interviews four times each during the first postoperative year. Based on the women’s experiences, a meaning structure*the ambivalence of losing weight after obesity surgery*was identified across the women’s processes of change. This consisted of five core themes: movement and activity*freedom but new demands and old restraints; eating habits and digestion*the complexity of change; appearance*smaller, but looser; social relations*stability and change; and being oneself*vulnerability and self-assurance. These core themes changed over time in terms of dominance. The experience of ambivalence is discussed according to a phenomenological perspective of the body as lived experience.en_US
