How to make sure you don’t gain weight when stuck at home
We are living an interesting life these days. Many of us are staying home as much as possible, which can make losing weight tricky for some people. It can be extremely frustrating, especially if you have been doing really well on your weight loss journey beforehand. As a weight loss surgery patient, you must take the time to figure out what works for you to ensure you stay on the right path.
The New Year is approaching! I know many of us are ready to say goodbye to 2020. With a new year comes new beginnings. If you are struggling to get back on track, use this time to press reset. However, make sure you set attainable resolutions. Sometimes all you need to do is make small changes to make a big impact. Here are a few small changes you can make in the New Year that will have a huge impact on your health.
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.
Yesterday, I woke up and stepped on thescale and did not see any movement. I felt discouraged and sat there and evaluated everything I had done the day before to see what I needed to do differently. I was really frustrated because I have been working extremely hard. I went on with my day and continued to make healthy choices, even though I was feeling really down.
It is Fall! That means there are so many tasty treats out there. It can be hard this time of year for bariatric patients. We can often feel like we are missing out because we cannot enjoy these treats like our friends can. Well, I have good news! Bariatric Food Source has some great options that are low sugar and high protein. They are great choices if you are struggling to get through the holidays.
Congratulations! You decided to have weight loss surgeryto turn your life around and begin a new healthy lifestyle. More than likely you feel amazing and you are healthier than you have ever been before. You are doing things for the first time and crushing your goals. There is something so empowering about this journey.
After weight loss surgery, you will be tracking how much weight you lose and it will feel amazing watching the scale go down. However, there will come a time when the scale slows down and you must be prepared for that. As bariatric patients, we sometimes get obsessed with the scale. It is important to remember that the scale is not everything and there are other victories on this journey.
As weight loss surgery patients, it is important that we havegoals. Goals keep us motivated and on track with our weight loss. However, sometimes it can be easy to set unrealistic goals that are impossible to achieve. It can be extremely discouraging when you are not achieving your goals.
As with all surgeries, weight loss surgery comes with side effects. Some of those side effects can be strange. One of the most interesting side effects is that you can be a lot colder after surgery. You might not notice it at first, but it is something many bariatric patients are faced with.
Weight loss surgery is a wonderful tool for people who are struggling with their weight. It is a huge decision on whether or not it is right for you, so it is important that you do your research to determine if surgery is your best option. Although bariatric surgery has been shown to be extremely safe, it is important that you ensure it is the safest option for you and your health as there are risks with any surgery. Once you make the decision to have surgery, you must also be prepared for life after the procedure, especially what you will experience those first few days after surgery.
