Refresher: Why working for your health with WLS matters

Are you struggling to remember why you had weight loss surgery and why working for your health must be a priority? I have those days too. Let's take a look at a few key learning points from Day 5 of the 5 Day Pouch Test found on page 89 of your 5 Day Pouch Test Owner's Manual, Second Edition:

Losing weight is a matter of health: it is not a competitive sport. Contrary to popular culture, weight loss is not a contest. Weight loss is a lifesaving initiative owned by the one taking action. This is your journey: enjoy it at your pace.

Learn to measure your worth by means other than the bathroom scale. Focus on your whole self: your intelligence, social grace, spiritual connections, and professional and scholastic achievements.

Develop strategies for navigating in the real world. When we have surgery we changed and then we return to the exact environment we lived in prior to surgery: the very environment that contributed to our obesity. The only chance we have to make the surgery work is to evolve strategies for navigating our new body in the old waters.

Always practice kindness. Be kind to yourself, our ongoing theme. Express gratitude for your weight loss tool and for your personal empowerment. Celebrate doing the best you could to find a middle ground to respect yourself and your traditions and your new WLS body. This you deserve.
Please take a few moments to consider these key learning points and add a few of your own. We are all in this together!
