In case you missed my free teleclass: Taking Charge of Emotional Eating After Weight Loss Surgery, there is still time to listen to an audio recording of the class. Just click on the link to access the recording.
There are serious misconceptions out there about bariatric surgery being “a quick fix” or an “easy solution.” Not true. Weight loss surgery requires a major investment–and not just financial–in order to develop a successful post-surgery lifestyle and to attain weight loss that lasts. Gastric bypass, lap band, and other bariatric procedures all require patients to develop new relationships with food and additional coping tools. In the teleclass I talked about some of the common mistakes people make and tools that can make things a lot easier.
We talked about:
why ignoring emotional cravings is a big mistake
how shame and guilt can sabotage your weight loss
why it’s not selfish to take excellent care of yourself
why curiosity is an incredibly valuable tool for taking control of emotional eating.
Take a listen if you are interested. Please leave a comment sharing your thoughts, your struggles, and your successes.
Take good care,
