It’s All Good, Part II

06/06/2009 | WellnessBariatric & Medical Weight Loss

I could quote a lot of studies that show high, moderate, and low intensity exercise produce results. Many studies show all of these as ways to achieve results, because any kind of exercise will help your body grow stronger and healthier! But when it comes to choosing what kinds of exercises to do, the main goal is to avoid the start-and-stop-exercise program (what I call a yo-yo exerciser). The best kinds of exercise are the ones that make you feel good and help you incorporate exercise into your…

Comfort Food, Part II

06/06/2009 | WellnessBariatric & Medical Weight Loss

So the question everyone is asking is "did I turn to my old friend McDonalds for some greasy cheeseburger and french-fry snuggle time?" No! Did I want to? You bet! Was it hard? Extremely! Did I make some poor choices these past few weeks? Yes! Did it make my pain disappear? No. Did I feel better? In that moment for a few minutes I told myself I felt better. 20 minutes later did I feel miserable? YES. If it wasn’t for my support system of family, friends, colleagues, dietitians and other bariatric…

It is summertime and the heat is on! Be sure to drink, drink, drink!

It’s All Good, Part I

06/04/2009 | WellnessBariatric & Medical Weight Loss

Many exercise professionals talk about doing one kind of exercise (like high intensity or low intensity) in order to lose the most weight or get the best body. Most of the time what they are claiming is true (although I’d have to check the sources!), because ALL kinds of exercise programs produce results…the results just differ. High intensity exercise produces quick results and a lot of other benefits, but you run the risk of burning yourself out. And moderate-to-low intensity exercise…

Have you felt that beautiful sun on your face? Although the last couple days have been rainy, the last couple weeks have been amazing, especially for Indiana.

That is often hard when you are overweight and you feel like you are sitting on the outside watching everyone…

Comfort Food, Part I

06/04/2009 | WellnessBariatric & Medical Weight Loss

I remember the days when no matter what mood I was in, food was my friend just waiting to wrap its arms around me like a big fluffy blanket and snuggle. I am 19 months post-op from having gastric bypass surgery and still think about comfort foods! These past few weeks I’ve been on a very emotional roller coaster ride and many of us know that it can become a slippery slope if we aren’t careful. I’m currently taking a few college courses and spending any spare time I have studying,…
