Myths and Misconceptions - Gastric Bypass Edition

Monday, August 08, 2016

We all are trying to lose weight, so why do so many people look down on those who need help to do it? In this blog I go over some different reasons why gastric bypass is not the "easy way out", having personal experience with the surgery. If you have any questions for me feel free to leave them in the comment section below!

    Why would anyone think it is an easy way out to go through this surgery, It is just another choice that we have to make for ourselves when we try everything else and nothing works or sticks. I've been there, just don't want to pay for it or take time off work for it.

    I wish you nothing but the best and what a great thing you are doing for everyone in sharing.

    I am in the process of going to have the sleeve surgery done. I haven't been able to lose weight and for heath reasons I am having it done. I am so happy that you did this blog, letting people know it is not the easy way out. Just the months before surgery is hard. Thanks again, good luck and looking forward to hearing from you again.

    You are very courageous in speaking up about this. I am sure this will be very helpful for anyone who is seriously considering having a procedure. It helps to know that it's not a walk in the park or a quick fix; although I think most people go in thinking they will be 'the One' that enjoys rapid and easy weight loss.

    You have a very grounded and realistic attitude that will serve you well, not to mention that cute little button to remind you why you're making the effort. High five!

    Peace and Care
