Fresh Approach Weight Loss Surgery Podcast

Fresh Approach Weight Loss Surgery Podcast

When you had weight loss surgery your surgeon didn’t implant willpower, self-control, or an anti-resistance device. The only thing that changed is the way your stomach works.

Join Mary Clark, 7-year WLS patient, 17-year WLS educator and advocate, and life coach.

Mary says, “Stop trying to fit your life into your weight loss surgery journey – it’s the other way around! Weight loss surgery, is a part of your life.” Yes, Mary shines a light on the fundamental bariatric surgery guidelines, but emphasizes the essential components for making heart and mindset shifts so you can live your best with weight loss surgery.

So whether you had surgery 5 months or 5 years ago, or you’re just beginning to look into it, it’s never too early or too late for a Fresh Approach to health and happiness with weight loss surgery.

    WHY you need to make peace with your pre-surgery self IF you want long-term WLS success.

    This is one of those "me getting real honest with you about my life" episodes...a few tears were shed during this recording. But THIS is so often the missing link to long-term weight loss surgery success. What I hear too often is, "I can't stand who I was before I had surgery...I was a loser...I was a failure...I had no self-discipline or self-control..." If you don't get clear on who you were and WHY, pre-surgery, and make peace with'll be at odds with yourself and your weight loss surgery journey until you do.
