Find Your Why – Bariatric Edition

Why did you have bariatric surgery? Just to lose weight? What is your “why”?

Where are you on your bariatric journey?  Are you actively losing weight? Stalled out?  Where do you want to be?  Not where you want to be?  Talk to me.

I want you to read this, email me back, and tell me in your words, where you are today.  I know that many of you read my blogs and I want to hear from you.  Again, talk to me.

Do you need an appointment?  Do you want to touch base?  Do you want to send me your food logs?  Do you need some encouragement?

What does this have to do with Cancun?  I decided to set this bariatric trip up because I wanted to motivate you.  I wanted to give you a 6-month leeway to make some decisions and set some intentions and bring those to Cancun.

5 months and counting now…… A lot can happen in 5 months.  You can reach your goal.  You can lose your regain.  You can gain 5 pounds of pure muscle.  You can become radiantly healthy.  What are you going to do over the next 5 months?

If you are stuck, and you have the bucks (that rhymes lol), go online and get your plane tickets to Cancun.

You will need a passport, so if you don’t have one, apply for one now. I have a theory.  If you get a passport, you will start to travel more.  If you would like to travel more, get a passport.  One less travel roadblock.

Our bariatric event is happening over one day, November 5th.

Come a few days early, and work on that tan.  Stay a few days later, and work on that vacation.  I have set up this event at a fantabulous hotel (not all-inclusive, because why would a bariatric patient need an all-inclusive hotel).

The El Presidente Hotel is on the very best beach in all of Cancun.  The sand is white, the water is calm and turquoise blue. It’s close to the airport.

I have a GREAT rate for us.  It is $155us for one or two people in a double room.  With taxes and breakfast included, it comes to $200us per night, per room. (that’s $100us per night, per person, double occupancy, with taxes and breakfast included).  YAY.

I wish it was free, but what in life is free today.  We have time to save up for it – 5 months and counting.  Invest in yourself by sending me your WHY …. Book those tickets, book those rooms, and let’s sail on a catamaran while celebrating US.

Bring your Mom, BFF, sister, brother, husband, or wife.  Come alone.  Find someone in our group that wants to share a room with you.  So many different ways to plan this.  Do you need a roomie?  I can find you one!

I cannot wait to see you there.  I cannot wait to hear from you in my inbox, through messenger, or via text message.  Tell me your WHY!!  What are you going to accomplish before your plane touches down in Cancun?  This is so much fun.



Healthy Hugs.
