Staying Balanced After Weight Loss Surgery
15 Tips for Success
A. E. McKay
In March, 2008, I made the courageous decision to have medical weight loss surgery to save my life. At 330 pounds, with a 52 inch waistline, my body was plagued with medical issues. I was pre-diabetic, had sleep apnea and was very depressed.
My decision was initially only about losing weight and I was very unprepared for what happened. Losing weight was only part of this journey. What transpired was so much greater - learning how powerfully emotional food was in my life and how it controlled my every action for over 30 years.
Learning to understand and accept my food addiction was the first step and, six years and 130 pounds lighter, I am able to share my story with others who have struggled with their weight and might be considering weight loss surgery.
I provide 15 TIPS to follow as you prepare for surgery and as you move along afterwards. I talk about setting up your plans, having a support network, food cravings and intolerance, substituting other addictive behaviors, the no-no food list and many more important topics.
If you have struggled with your weight and are looking for solutions, this book is for you. If you know someone that is 50, 75 or 100+ pounds overweight, this will help them make better decisions. For anyone needing help or guidance in considering weight loss surgery, this book is a helpful guide in your research.
