Help My Weight Loss Surgery Tool Has Stopped Working!

sabotage your diet

It doesn’t matter whether you have 10lbs, 20lbs, or 90lbs to lose, the truth is your current weight is perceived by your body as it’s ideal ‘STATE’ it knows no numbers! You’ll lose weight at the rate that your body allows not your mind nor your ego expects/perceives.

Weight loss is about biology and you can not and will not outsmart your body. If you think you can, then wait until the ‘snap back effect’ or the ‘rebound weight gain’ occurs.

The harder you push, the harder the body will push back!

That’s why most people don’t maintain their weight loss and opt to have weight loss surgery to assist in the reduction and maintenance of weight loss – remember though the weight loss surgery is a tool that works with the body and not on it or against it!

If you’re feeling out of control with your eating, feeling like you’ve failed at weight loss surgery and/or have stopped losing or started gaining since your bariatric procedure, then immediate action is necessary.

Establish a regular pattern of eating

If you’ve started gaining or stopped losing weight after weight loss surgery, chances are you’ve fallen into chaotic, random eating.

That’s eating whatever you want, whenever you want. Sure, you may only be able to eat small portions since having your lap band, gastric bypass, gastric sleeve, or duodenal switch, or gastric wrap, but eating small portions, too frequently, adds up to too many calories!

That’s why you should establish a planned pattern of eating. This will provide you little “stepping stones” to get through the day.

Ideally, eat within 1 hour of waking and plan to eat little meals every 3-4 hours thereafter.

A sample schedule might look like this:

7am Breakfast
10am Snack
1pm Lunch
4pm Snack
7pm Dinner

Get back to the basics

If it’s been months or even years since your bariatric procedure, you may have forgotten about the basics:

  • Protein first
  • Avoid drinking and eating at the same time
  • Eat slowly and chew thoroughly
  • Exercise

It’s easy to get away from doing any one of these, but if you forget them all…

…hello extra weight!

Keep a food log

The best weight loss tool is not a treadmill! It’s a pen.

According to research, if you write down everything you eat each day, you’ll lose twice as much as if you didn’t.

It just makes sense, because food journaling makes you accountable for every lick, nibble and sip you take, and it’s likely mindless eating has played a part in slowed weight loss or weight re-gain after weight loss surgery.

Get back on track. You can do it!
