Dining Out after Bariatric Surgery

 

Bariatric surgery drastically changes your eating habits. It can be a challenge making these adjustments when you're home, but what happens when you venture outside the comfort zone of your own kitchen? From hidden ingredients to huge portions, dining in a restaurant presents many obstacles for the bariatric diner.  Making poor decisions can sabotage your weight loss success.  Join us for this support group to learn strategies that will help you stay true to your commitment and dine out healthfully.

After this support group, patients will be able to:      

1)  Recognize sources of excess calories commonly seen on several types of restaurant menus.

2)  Identify behavioral changes necessary to stay on track with your eating plan while dining at a

     restaurant.

3)  Determine ways to choose foods from menus so that you can enjoy a restaurant meal while

     remaining on a healthful meal plan.

Ringing in the New Year

 

Let's use 2018 to celebrate our strengths instead of defining ourselves by our weaknesses!

Self-esteem is a word that is thrown around in today’s society, without ever being clearly defined. Many
erroneously believe that good self-esteem equals being selfish or boastful. However, it is very different.
Self-esteem is celebrating your strengths and positives, and being aware of, but not defined, by your
weaknesses. It is realizing that you are not “perfect” yet just like every other human being, you do have good
attributes. It is choosing to highlight those and use what you have to compensate for what is challenging.

So many of us choose to live only with our negative realities, which serves to undermine our sense of being “worthy” of putting ourselves first and being grateful for who we are and what we have. Some of us may believe that self-esteem is equal to weight or size. Those same individuals are extremely disappointed when they hit their goal weight, only to discover they do not suddenly feel “beautiful” or “happy” as they believed they would. Negative eating habits may reemerge and undermine maintenance of your new, healthy weight. Therefore, it is very important to understand your own “balance” of self-esteem, and how you can improve how you view yourself before, during, and following bariatric surgery.

Please join us for an optimistic and uplifting afternoon!
