    Bariatric surgery is no cure-all for obesity

    One woman’s account of the long term expectations and management of #wls. make for interesting reading. She also takes into account the proposed new increased access to #wls for the #obese and those who have type ” #diabetes.

    It’s is interesting article sue , in one way she right surgery is wonderful and as you know it’s saved my life , and I think streamline offer a really good after care package . I can only speak to my self , I believe that I have to do every thing I can to make this work , it means exercising ( yer I know we all hate this before surgery ) and I can honesty say I now get a buz from it . . I also have had 3 years of counselling in the past which I have found very helpful . But I have to constantly work on my own unhelpful though . It becomes a habit one in which I have to challenge my self all the time . , the hardest part is the emotional and psychological, all the coping mechanise I use have now disappeared . . In some way I was invisible when I was big , . One change I noticed is that when I’m stress my pouch goes all shy to food !
    I think the support her and in the groups is so important . In my head it’s like cigarettes I alway be an ex smoker

    I agree 100% Kim.

    My mum describes herself as a ‘non-smoking smoker’ even though she gave up over 20 years ago.

    We will always want to turn to food if we don’t change our way of thinking. I had three years of therapy too to find out why I did it. It has made my life after wls so much easier. I’m not saying that I don’t EVER eat for comfort, just that it isn’t my knee jerk reaction to stress anymore. I’m six years post surgery and appreciate that therapy now more than ever.
