Bariatric surgery support helps those considering bariatric surgery or who have undergone the procedure and need some support.

Bariatric surgery is designed to reduce the size of your stomach.  This makes it difficult to eat the quantities of food that led to the weight problem in the first place.  But this is just the beginning of the weight loss journey.  The surgery doesn’t deal with the psychological challenges that accompany it.  Eating is often a way of suppressing emotion or providing comfort.  When this “friend” is no longer available, it leaves with it all the emotions that were suppressed or repressed.  This can come as a huge shock.

In addition, there are practical matters to consider.  How to navigate your new relationship with food, the effects on your relationships, your social life and your sense of identity as well as body image issues.

Bariatric surgery is the beginning of the journey and its success depends on your ability to adapt to the changes:  practically, physically and emotionally.  Bariatric surgery support will help you so you can be healthier and happier in mind, body and spirit.

Whether you are at the beginning of the journey, or struggling through it, do call to find out how I can support you through this complex and life-changing process.  You’ll be glad you did.
