Weight loss surgery is stomach surgery, not brain surgery. Did you know that 40% of bariatric surgery patients regain weight within 5 years of having weight loss surgery? When it comes to long-term weight-loss surgery success, you've got to get a handle on your emotions and motivation. The food will always be there, and it's not about knowing WHAT to eat, but instead, transforming your relationship with food. This is why conquering your MINDSET is essential.If you are not in the right head-space, you can slide backward and enter the danger zone of regaining weight. Unfortunately, the cravings, emotional impulses,and habits to eat whatever and whenever still pop up after surgery. Even with the knowledge of what to eat, you will also need to learn how to manage yourself and your mindset around food. Fancy meal plans won't help you if you haven't tackled the most difficult part of having weight loss surgery; your brain! After investing so much time to get your body where you want it, is having the wrong mindset worth the risk of sabotaging all you've worked hard to achieve? In Bariatric Mindset Success, you will be guided by Kristin, a professional psychotherapist and a successful gastric sleeve post-op patient through her most coveted weight loss surgery success strategies.
