Success After Surgery

Choose What You Want Most Over What You Want Now

As we embark on a new week, I want to share a powerful mantra that can help guide us through our various journeys:

"Don't give up what you want MOST for what you want NOW."


This journey after bariatric surgery, whether it's about health, fitness, personal growth, or any other goal, is a marathon, not a sprint. It requires endurance, patience, and a steadfast commitment to your long-term objectives. It's easy to get sidetracked by short-term desires or temporary comforts, but it's crucial to keep your eyes on the prize – your ultimate goal.


What Do You Truly Want?

Ask yourself, what is it that you really want? Is it to achieve a healthier lifestyle? To see future generations of your family thrive? To live without the constraints of pain and discomfort? Or is it to feel confident and fabulous in your own skin? Identifying your 'most wanted' helps to align your daily actions with your long-term goals.


The Power of Choices

Every day, we are faced with choices that can either bring us closer to our goals or push us further away. Remember, it's mind over stomach, mind over matter. When you're tempted to stray from your path, remind yourself of what you're working towards. The satisfaction of achieving what you want most will be far greater than the fleeting pleasure of what you want now.


Mind Over Stomach

This phrase isn't just about food choices; it’s about controlling impulses and making decisions that benefit your future self. Whether it's choosing a healthy meal over fast food, going for a walk instead of watching TV, or saving money instead of making an impulsive purchase – these are the choices that add up and make a significant impact on our lives.


You've Got This!

Believe in yourself and your ability to make the right choices. You are stronger and more capable than you might think. Every step forward, no matter how small, is a victory in this marathon. Celebrate your progress, learn from the setbacks, and keep pushing forward.


So, as you go about your week, keep this thought close to your heart: Don't sacrifice your long-term goals for temporary comforts. Focus on what you want most, and you'll find the strength to overcome the challenges.
