our dirty little secret ?
I get that we all thought that if we had weight loss surgery it would fix things and we would never need to worry again. That’s just not true.
Surgery Gave us a pass to get out from under the weight but now it’s up to us to preserve that gift.
We cannot expect to maintain our new body weights for the rest of a long life without exercise. The dirty little bariatric secret. I know we aren’t supposed to admit it, but I get it and it’s just between us.
Too many post ops use the excuse that they have bad legs, knees, ankles… and because of this they CANNOT exercise. Fact is, it’s an excuse. It’s from the same group of excuses we all used for years as to why we were 255 pounds. I DONT UNDERSTAND IT, I DONT EAT THAT MUCH, I MUST JUST HAVE A BAD METABOLISM. Psssst… it is bs. I ate very high calorie food, took in way more calories than I burned, and didn’t burn any sitting on the sofa. I own it.
Just a LITTLE exercise you can do – I promise that it will make a big
