Address reasons that trigger you to eat!
The first two years after surgery are often called “the honeymoon phase,” as patients commonly lose most of their excess weight during this time period. However, without other important behavior changes; studies show that weight regain is common. The first two years after surgery are the perfect opportunity to address other factors to improve your chance for long-term success. Do you eat when you’re bored, stressed, depressed, or for other reasons? It is essential to identify and address these triggers now so that old habits don’t return in the future.
Consider working with a psychologist or dietician to address these concerns. Remember…weight loss surgery is performed on your stomach…not your brain!
