Getting the support you need is almost as important as the food you eat. It’s not always about the food. We focus so much on the food. What we eat. How much. How fast. How often. But how about why we ate ourselves obese in the first place. It wasn’t about the food.
You may not know this but each week I host a weight loss surgery support call.
It’s a very informal meeting. Anyone interested in weight loss surgery is welcome. You can find details here.
Tonight we had one of those calls. I love these calls. It’s all very simple. You need to talk with others who are experiencing the same things you are. You dial into the conference call. You gain insight. You share your experience. You leave recharged to keep your journey moving in the right direction.
What a gift.
You know you’re not alone in this journey. If you are struggling, seek the support you need. If you need help with food call your nutritionist. If you need help with activity visit your local gym or Curves. If you need to talk with those living the same weight loss surgery journey that you are than find yourself a support group.
A support group can do wonders for your journey. No one wants to do this alone.
You may have access to a local hospital group. You may have access to the Internet for Facebook or YouTube forums. Me I need to talk with friends. Friends who are living the same post op life I am.
Many of us ate ourselves obese because of emotional reasons. We need to address these in order to keep our weight off. You may choose to work with a professional and I recommend that. It has helped me at different stages in my journey.
But don’t underestimate a good chat with friends. Our group tonight left me recharged. I’m not alone!!
Join us next week. Get details here.
