In talking with hundreds of weight loss surgery patients over the last 17 years I've learned that most believe surgery allows them a fresh start, a way to begin again. Not only with their health and appearance, but somehow they believe along with losing the pounds, the rest of their troubled pasts will be swept away too.
It's not true.
And what's more, is that while it seems like the "old troubles" are wiped away during that honeymoon period of the first 12 months - once the compliments stop, and it's not such a big deal to shop in regular stores, and your doctor isn't high-five-ing you about your labs anymore because your results have been normal for months now...reality begins to creep back in.
And this is when "old troubles" can sweep back in too. But surgery CANNOT wipe away your "old troubles".
Let's talk about this.
