Of course you want to lose your excess weight when you have bariatric surgery. You also (hopefully) want to keep that weight off! A group of researchers has informed us that having and utilizing a healthy support system after bariatric surgery is a great predictor for keeping weight off. Let’s bring this home. Do YOU have a support system? People in your immediate life that are there for you as you celebrate the victories related to weight loss, who are there to lovingly remind you when they see you engaging in behaviors that are not going to help you achieve your long-term goals and who are going to provide you with empathy, encouragement and celebration throughout your journey? Are you involved in support groups with other people going through the process of weight loss and why is this important? How can you tell who is truly healthy support person? Tune in and find out. Then share this information with someone you think could benefit from it as well!
