If You're Like Most WLS Patients, You've Struggled With Eating & Weight Most Of Your Life.
If you're anything like my client Susan, you might relate to what she went through before she worked with me.
Susan was bullied at school because of her weight, and she was so sick of always feeling like "the big one".
She spent her life yo yo'ing with food and her weight, and was either in total control and being perfect or bingeing (and nothing in between).
Every time she tried to lose weight, she ended up putting on even more weight, regardless of which diet she was on.
Over time this made her feel like a failure. The shame and disappointment made her lose her self worth.
Like Susan, you knew a few friends that had WLS and were doing well.
You did your research, organised your insurance and booked your surgery in!
It all went really well at the start. Even though it was an adjustment, you took it day by day.
The weight just dropped off you, and food wasn't controlling you anymore.
You loved this feeling.
You probably found the complements were coming in thick and fast, you celebrated when you dropped dress sizes.
With every dress size you dropped, your self worth increased.
She finally felt like her real self.
But then you started to notice that your head hunger started getting louder and louder, and your old friend chocolate started to sneak back in after dinner as you were relaxing in front of the TV.
Like Susan, you probably felt disappointed in yourself and felt like a failure.
Feeling worried that you just wasted all of your hard earned money.
But your worry isn't enough to stop you from eating those slider foods.
"I'll start again tomorrow" is what Susan told herself each day.
Week by week, she kept losing more and more control over her eating, as she let her head hunger dominate.
Her eating and weight spiralled and she felt so stuck.
She felt like a complete failure and she was so disappointed in herself.
WLS was meant to give her permanent results.
Why didn't surgery work?
Perhaps you have asked this exact same question.
If You're Failing With Your Weight, It's Because You've Been Working With A Broken Strategy.
It's NOT Your Fault.
97% of WLS patients struggle with this. You're not alone.
