What does “overall psychological strength and stability” mean and what does that have to do with maintaining weight loss? Having what the researchers of the article we have been discussing for the past several episodes call “overall psychological strength and stability” basically means being a healthy adult. Well… that doesn’t clear things up very much! Listen in and I’ll explain why being able to at least act as if we’re psychologically healthy adults is important when it comes to keeping weight off. And maintaining weight loss after bariatric surgery is, after all, one of the main goals I hope you have when making the decision to have bariatric surgery. So let’s get on with finding out what a person with overall psychological strength and stability acts like! As always, please be sure to share this information with your friends! Encourage them to listen to BariAftercare, the Podcast and for additional information to include a worksheet I created on this topic, join the BariAftercare program by going to www.bariaftercare.com.
