Life After Surgery

Tips for maintaining weight lossBariatric weight loss surgery offers patients a new lease on life, providing the opportunity for improved health and well-being. However, this form of treatment requires serious commitment and discipline, as weight loss is only achieved and maintained when surgery is combined with proper nutrition, exercise, behavioral changes and medical supervision.

Weight loss is a gradual, ongoing process with a unique set of challenges. That's why it is so important to build a support system for the weeks, months and even years to come as you adjust to a rigorous new diet and work toward your personal weight loss goals.

Helpful tips for attaining and sustaining weight loss:

  • Join a support group - Atlantic Weight & Wellness Center at Chilton Medical Center runs a free, monthly Weight Loss Surgery Support Group where participants share experiences and strategies while inspiring others with their success.
  • Get moving - Regular physical activity is essential to weight loss. Join a gym or fitness class, begin a walking routine, or find another activity you enjoy.
  • Keep your doctors' appointments - Weight loss surgery is not a substitute for medical supervision and follow-up.
  • Celebrate your success - Take time to acknowledge milestones and reward yourself for losing weight. Shed another 10 pounds? Why not treat yourself to a new outfit or a day at the spa?
