So, you are preparing to lose weight and not sure of where to start. That’s OK; many others have been where you are now. The first steps are always the hardest to take, but Barnes Bariatric Solutions can help you on your way to becoming a happier and healthier person!
Prepare to Succeed!
Before you start on your weight loss journey, it is important to build up a good support system. Support can come in many ways, but you may want to find family members or friends you can reach out to in times of need. Maybe you feel like eating but are not necessarily hungry — that would be a good time to call one of these people and talk through why you feel that way. Doing this can keep your mind off the false hunger pangs as well as give you insight into your eating habits.
If your tendency to eat stems from something deeper, such as childhood trauma or self-esteem issues, you may also want to seek out a professional counselor. Professionals can help you get to the root of your issues so you can confront them head-on and make better progress while you walk your path. It is also nice that counselors are third parties, so their comments are only meant to help you become the person you want to be.
Finally, the hospitals that Dr. Barnes operates in have seminars or support groups to keep you motivated and on task.
Once you get your support and motivation down, you can begin to consider weight loss solutions. Have you tried diet and exercise in the past and not seen substantial or lasting results? Maybe a surgical solution is worth considering.
Barnes Bariatric Solutions offers many types of weight loss assistance, from LAP-BAND placement to gastric bypass surgery. Surgical solutions are not cheats; they still take hard work and dedication, but you can do it! To get started on a weight loss plan, call Barnes Bariatric Solutions toll-free at (877) 959-6628 or request an appointment online. It is never too late to get back in shape. One day you will look back on your first steps and wonder where the time and excess body weight went!
