It’s that time of year again. The time that a lot of bariatric patients dread because food is everywhere. Thanksgiving is a wonderful celebration with family and friends, but after weight loss surgery, it can be quite challenging. Life can be very different for bariatric patients because the way we look at food has to change. It takes time to truly learn your new lifestyle after the procedure, which can make the holiday season a little harder.
I remember it like it was yesterday. My first Christmas after bariatric surgerywas completely different than what I was used to. You wouldn’t think it would make this much of an impact on my life, but it did.
