Zero Weight Regain 2017

What are your long-term weight loss goals? Likely you have a positive, upbeat vision of a thin and healthy you. Bariatric surgery might be an option you are considering. Or you may have already undergone one of these weight loss procedures.

Given your dreams and all the hard work you are going through to achieve them, would it be a shock to hear: Many food be a problem. Right? Well, its not quite that simple. Bariatric surgery is a powerful tool that helps you lose weight, but it is not a cure-all. Permanent weight loss requires more than a bariatric surgery. Permanent weight loss requires that we forever change the way we feel, think, and act around food. Follow our steps to turn “bad habits” in “healthy habits.” They’ll set you on a straight course toward permanent weight loss.

Read, “10 Easy Steps to Permanent Weight Loss!”

Be Committed!

Stay on your path to weight loss. It takes dedication. So be dedicated. It takes perseverance. So persevere. The surgery is not a means to an end. It is only the beginning.

Living larger than ever,

Love this! I am almost two years out and want to ensure that I keep up my healthy habits. I've seen other bariatric patients that are 3, 4, 5, and even 10 years out that have not gained, but I've also known some that have gained. My husband and I are committed to our healthy lifestyle. We also have found a love of running. We try to enter a race at least once a month to keep us motivated to training. We also both do weight training. It is great to have someone to encourage you.

How wonderful that you and your husband have been able to incorporate your healthy lifestyle into the marriage and find activities like running and weight training that bring you closer together. You are setting yourselves up for long term success! Keep up the great work! I had my gastric bypass in 2003. Permanent weight loss is a reality.

I'm pre-op and hear/read the stories of patients gaining weight and always have the nagging question on my mind "what if I regain?" But then I am reminded that I must change my relationship with my choices of food, along with the quantity and quality of it. I just went to a family member's birthday party last night. Everyone was eating and I didn't have one bite. Why? I wasn't hungry...and I actually chose to listen to my body. (I tend to mindlessly eat) Party food did not dictate my social fun. I still had fun! I danced away, even with a hurt shoulder. With all that said, it's a long term, forever commitment to follow and I know I can do it. Thank you for your post and inspiration!

Thank you for your inspiring words and for showing us how to "get it done" in the real world. When we realize how truly powerful we are in directing our thoughts and emotions to serve us rather than harm us, then we truly are in the driver's seat on our path to permanent weight loss. GOOD FOR YOU!!!
