A post-op patient recently told me she has started counting the number of self-sabotaging behaviors she recognizes herself engaging in every day. She was shocked and horrified at the many ways she was sabotaging her own weight loss success. Examples of her self-sabotaging behaviors included hiding food in her closet and eating it before she went to bed at night, telling her spouse she was going to the gym but instead going to get fast food and sitting in the parking lot eating by herself, and emotionally beating herself up by calling herself abusive names after engaging in those behaviors. How about you? Do you engage in behaviors that lead you away from your long-term weight and healthy lifestyle goals? Listen in and learn about the reasons people engage in self-sabotage and get some hints on how to extinguish these unhealthy behaviors. Let’s get started!
