Don't Compare Yourself to Others after Bariatric Surgery

Have you recently had bariatric surgery? Have you been asked by others who have had similar surgeries to compare your weight and or have you been asked how much fluid is in your gastric band? Are you starting to cringe when people ask you questions like these? Does it make you feel even more pressure to lose weight?

When I had my bariatric surgery a few years ago, questions like these drove me crazy. I had my surgery because I was lethargic, my BMI was over 50, and I had over 130 pounds that I needed to lose. Of course, as soon as I had my surgery, my weight decreased somewhat, but then the questions started when I started attending support group meetings.

Do not get me wrong because attending support meetings can be very advantageous. They can be of great benefit to people who need to share their experiences about gastric surgeries. Nevertheless, sometimes, people forget that the true purpose of these support meetings is to actually offer support. I know; it is an inconceivable idea, actually finding support at support meetings. Still that is the purpose of those meetings.

Unless you want to share how much weight you've lost or how much fluid you have in your band, you should feel like you have to share at these meetings? More than anything, you should sit around thinking about how much weight Tabitha has lost when you have reached your temporary, weight loss plateau. Who cares about Tabitha and her weight loss? This bariatric surgery was for you, and it is still all about you.

All people respond differently to weight loss surgeries because all people are unique. Your weight loss could never be compared to anyone else, even if that person had the same BMI, height, and medical conditions as you do. As long as you are losing weight at a speed that is safe and acceptable to your physician, then you are doing great.
You have had your surgery, and you are sticking to your diet and losing weight. Do not let anyone rain on your weight loss parade.
