10/05/2009 | WellnessBariatric & Medical Weight Loss

Here is the last of my "Small Bites" taken from Katie Jay. Perhaps you grow tired at times of explaining to others what you must do to maintain a healthy WLS lifestyle. You fear that people will challenge or judge you on the choice you have made to have WLS. Undoubtedly, there are people who will do that and sabotage your efforts to boot. However, know that there are probably even more people who would be understanding and supportive if they only knew what you face each day. There’s no need…

More inspirations from Katie Jay! So, you don’t understand the task your boss has asked you to do. Your car needs a good cleaning and you have to drive a coworker to lunch. Your bills are due and you can’t find your check book. Being imperfect is stressful, but it’s also human. Can you let yourself off the hook? Can you remind yourself that in the long run, you won’t be remembered for the condition of your car? When you allow yourself to be human, you can let go of all kinds…

New research now shows that being fat is quickly becoming the second-leading cause of cancer behind smoking. Advertisement The news is especially bad for women in Western countries in coming years as the obesity epidemic continues to put them at higher risk. Colorectal cancer, breast…

When you say “I will” you are making a statement as well as a commitment. With all the temptations to eat or obsess about your food or your body, an “I WILL” attitude can give you a clear advantage. If you take a misstep, and someone suggest a tool to try, say “I will.” Don’t say, “That won’t work for me, because…”…
