Has anyone tried using NOOM along with their Surgery?



Recommended Posts

Hey, Newbie here!

I'm just beginning this process and already concerned that AFTER the surgery I might have the same sort of lack of control that I have now. I don't want to be afraid of myself and my own lack of control, so I want to work on behavioral changes through this entire process. Has anyone tried using NOOM while they were going through the pre-op and post-operative as well as maintenance phases?

Can't say that I have, but good for you for thinking about it! In regards to pre- and post-op, do keep in mind we have different needs and anatomies than what these plans are designed for. In which case following doctor's orders until goal is probably the right way to go for most.

As for maintenance, well, building a healthy plan and getting the mental side of things in order is a very good idea :)

I agree with OAGBPal. Follow your surgeon's plan during the weight loss phase - you can always switch to NOOM to maintain your loss (or lose regain, which is unfortunately fairly common) later.

Thank you both! I appreciate the feedback and support. My initial appointment isn't until April. Time seems to be moving slower than usual!
