Weight Loss Problems? - Why The Gastric Bypass Surgery Does Not Stick!
Gastric bypass surgeries are temporary physical fixes to a long term head problem!If you think the surgery is a cure all, think again. The crazy thing is people are gaining weight on purpose so they can be qualified to even be considered for the surgery. How sick is that?
My Aunt had gastric bypass surgery last year. She was so excited about her new body that she was going to get after the surgery. She just could not wait for her new life to begin. This was an answer to her prayers. So she thought!
Up until then, my aunt had not exercised a day in her life. Never followed a sensible eating plan, nor did she want to. By the looks of it, none of my family had ever sacrificed anything in the way of food. The doctor's had boosted her up; her children were totally delusional about their mom's weight and danced around the issue so much my aunt was in total denial. And guess what? True to form, she gained the weight back in eight months. Why?
The answer is; you can not build a house on a foundation made of sand. If you do not deal with what is underneath the surface in your emotional behavior toward your eating and exercise, you will go right back to the beginning, no matter what you take out or do to your body. Surgery or no surgery, there is no cure all for being overweight. Well, there is but do you want to hear it? Here it is:
1. Decide how you are motivated.
2. Determine your underlying reasons for your eating and exercise behaviors or lack of.
3. Develop the best support system for you.
4. Deal with the emotions behind your food patterns.
5. Dedicate yourself to an exercise program.
Ok, maybe the surgery works in the short run. And maybe that will buy you some time and gives you some inspiration to start exercising and eating better. However, it is not means to the end! It does not do any good for your head, maybe your stomach. If you do decide to have the surgery, please understand that with out deep changes in your thought process the gastric bypass surgery will not stick.
