Why Bariatric Surgery is the Perfect New Year Resolution Solution 

Achieving Your Weight Loss Goals in 2024: Why Bariatric Surgery is the Perfect New Year Resolution Solution 
The annual ritual of setting New Year’s resolutions is here—promising yourself that this year will be different, that you’ll finally shed those extra pounds and emerge victorious! But let’s face it, sticking to resolutions, especially weight loss ones, can be as tricky as finding a unicorn in your backyard. Fear not! This year, we’re ditching the vague promises and diving into the SMART goal approach for an actionable plan that will skyrocket your chances of success.
SMART Goals: A Roadmap to Win the Weight Loss Game
  • Specific
    • First things first, let’s get crystal clear about your goals. Instead of saying, “I want to lose weight,” be specific! Define how much weight you want to lose and in what timeframe. For instance, aim to lose 100 pounds in one year (spoiler alert: this is possible with Bariatric Surgery!).
  • Measurable
    • Tracking progress is vital for staying on course. Consider using a journal, an app, or a trusty old spreadsheet to record your weight, measurements, or even how your clothes fit. Seeing those numbers change over time can be incredibly motivating!
  • Achievable
    • Dream big but keep it real. At BodyByBariatrics, we can help you understand your results and the timeframe you will achieve them. We aim for a steady, realistic pace that is considered safe and sustainable.
  • Relevant
    • What is your “why”? Make sure your weight loss goal aligns with your life and values. Why do you want to lose weight? Is it for health reasons, to feel more confident, or maybe to keep up with your kids? Knowing your “why” will keep you focused and motivated during tough times.
  • Time-bound
    • Set a deadline! Having a specific timeframe creates a sense of urgency and helps you stay committed. Whether it’s six months or a year, having that endpoint in mind will keep you moving forward.

Say Goodbye to Fad Diets Forever

If you’re all set to bid farewell to those stubborn pounds once and for all, it’s time to seriously consider bariatric surgery! Yep, it’s your ticket to finally winning the fight against weight struggles.

Imagine a future where you no longer battle with yo-yo diets and endless cycles of weight gain and loss. Bariatric surgery provides a long-term solution, helping you to not only lose weight but maintain it for the long haul. Say goodbye to the hassles of diabetes, high blood pressure, and sleep apnea, too. Bariatric surgery isn’t just a weight-loss solution; it’s a complete health transformation.

Bariatric surgery is a surgical procedure that helps those struggling with the disease of obesity shed significant weight. It’s not a quick fix, though. Instead, it’s a powerful tool to grab the reins of your health and revolutionize your life.

At BodyByBariatrics, we make sure you are fully prepared for your surgery. It’s all about getting into gear for a successful procedure and recovery. You will make some doable lifestyle changes, like choosing healthier food, moving your body, and saying bye to smoking, if that’s your thing. We have your back through it all to ensure you achieve your goals and are maximally successful at sustaining them.

There are different types of bariatric surgeries. We offer the gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, and revisional bariatric surgery. Each has its perks, so we will talk it over to pick the one that suits you best.

Post-op time! Recovery is key, so follow our BodyByBariatrics Bariatric Surgery Success Guide to a T. From sipping on liquids to progressing your diet gradually per our dietitian Hannah’s recommendations, we’ve got the recipe for your success. Virtual regular check-ins and lifelong follow-up ensures you’re cruising towards your goals smoothly.

Other Pathways to Success

Now, bariatric surgery isn’t the only game in town. Sure, it’s a star player, but there are other options like our customized meal plans, weight loss medications, and joining our medical weight loss program.

In addition to a medical weight loss or bariatric surgery program, use these fun Strategies to Accomplish Your Weight Loss Goals:

  • Get Moving in Ways You Enjoy:
    • Who said exercise has to be a chore? Try different activities until you find what brings you joy. Dancing, hiking, yoga, or even joining a recreational sports team—find your groove and stick with it!
  • Embrace Mindful Eating:
    • It’s not just what you eat, but how you eat. Practice mindful eating by savoring each bite, eating slowly, and listening to your body’s hunger and fullness cues. You’ll enjoy your food more and likely eat less.
  • Build a Support System:
    • Surround yourself with cheerleaders! Whether it’s friends, family, or our BodyByBariatrics Facebook Support Group, having people who support and encourage you can make a world of difference on this journey.
  • Plan and Prep:
    • Batch cooking, meal prepping, and planning your meals in advance can save you time, money, and the temptation of unhealthy choices when hunger strikes.
  • Celebrate Milestones and Non-Scale Victories
    • Don’t wait until you’ve reached your ultimate goal to celebrate. Acknowledge and reward yourself for hitting smaller milestones along the way. Treat yourself to something non-food related like a spa day, a new book, or a mini-vacation.

Ready to dive into the transformational journey of 2024? Bariatric surgery could be your key to unlocking a healthier, happier you. It’s not a magic fix; it’s a commitment to becoming the best version of yourself. So, let’s make this year the one where you take the reins, bid adieu to those diet disasters, and embrace the awesomeness of bariatric surgery. Here’s to achieving your weight loss dreams and embracing a brighter, healthier life. Let’s make that New Year’s Resolution a reality, shall we?
