- Surgical fat removal is less successful if you are unable to sustain results after the surgery. Increasing protein intake and physical activity is needed after having the surgery and could make results last longer than not doing these things at all.
- Losing the weight is the easy part, but maintaining the weight loss is where the struggle comes in. Exercising and a balanced diet go hand in hand during a healthy weight loss journey. Being able to balance your intake through food and outtake through exercise is the key to working toward each person’s ideal weight.
- Confidence, patience, and energy are the number one fuels for a successful weight journey. Believing that you are able to achieve your goal, actively putting effort out, and keeping pace can help you get to your goal.
The decision to have weight-loss surgery can be a long and difficult one to make, but the friendly and knowledgeable staff of GBMC’s COMP program will help support you every step of the way. Visit https://www.gbmc.org/weightloss for more information.
