Is surgery enough?
What no surgery can help you with
It wont stop you eating chocolate, crisps, cake etc. The surgery changes the size of your stomach but it doesn’t stop you making inappropriate choices.
It wont stop you sabotaging your success because of underlying fears of change.
It wont stop that constant brain hunger and obsession with food, calories, diets and guilt.
It wont fill the fridge with nourishing foods and plan your meals so that you always have things to eat and are not tempted to eat less appropriate choices.
It wont make you get up in the morning and exercise.
It wont stop you feeling uncomfortable, bored, lonely, sad and you wont be able to eat food to relieve these feelings, or if you do you will sabotage your success.
