Post Bariatric Surgery

Getting the weight off and keeping it off takes more than just having bariatric surgery. Weight loss surgery, coupled with improved nutrition, exercise and behavior modification, can lead to a better you. Your mind and spirit play a big role in weight management.

It’s important to know that your emotions can trigger eating.

Now is the time to develop new, healthier habits.

Here are some tips:

  • Self-monitor what you’re doing. Keep track of what you eat and drink and how much physical activity you get. This will help increase self-awareness of your behavior.
  • Increase your physical activity. Find joy in learning new activities.
  • Learn to see food as a positive aspect of your life. You’re no longer eating just to be full or to help you feel better after a tough day. You’re eating to reap the benefits of fueling your body.
  • Set realistic goals. Don’t expect to drop too much weight too quickly.
  • Consider joining a support group or going to therapy to help deal with your new lifestyle.
  • Keep your mind busy, eating typically happens due to boredom.
  • Stop watching TV! Food commercials are designed to trigger your hunger centers even when you are not hungry. While watching TV, fast forward through the commercials.
  • Remember that you are no longer living to eat. You are now eating to live!
