Publisher's Summary

Weight-loss surgery is stomach surgery, not brain surgery.   

Did you know that 40 percent of bariatric surgery patients regain weight within five years of having weight-loss surgery? When it comes to long-term weight-loss surgery success, you've got to get a handle on your emotions and motivation. The food will always be there, and it's not about knowing what to eat, but instead about transforming your relationship with food. This is why conquering your mind-set is essential. If you are not in the right headspace, you can slide backward and enter the danger zone of regaining weight.   

Unfortunately, the cravings, emotional impulses, and habits to eat whatever and whenever still pop up after surgery. Even with the knowledge of what to eat, you will also need to learn how to manage yourself and your mind-set around food. Fancy meal plans won't help you if you haven't tackled the most difficult part of having weight-loss surgery: your brain! 

After investing so much time to get your body where you want it, is having the wrong mind-set worth the risk of sabotaging all you've worked hard to achieve?    

In Bariatric Mindset Success, you will be guided by Kristin, a professional psychotherapist and a successful gastric sleeve post-op patient, through her most coveted weight-loss surgery success strategies. She'll guide you through the weight-loss surgery basics as well as advanced mind-set, motivation, and emotional techniques to help you stay focused and on track through the ups and downs of life. You'll gain practical tools and techniques to create lifestyle habits that keep you focused on weight-loss surgery success for life, not just in the short term. Also, she provides tools to handle friendships and relationships after weight-loss surgery in addition to giving you a compass for living your best life, beyond the weight loss.

Great book with awesome narration!!!

incredibly helpful and informative book. I am almost a year postop and this book has provided great tips and tools to help me succeed on my weight loss journey.
the narrator was great. most of the audible stories seem to have not so great narrators. this narrator was very engaging and lively. I felt like she was just talking and not reading.

***LIFE-CHANGER***

Amazing book, a true life-changing read! Kristin has the credentials, first-hand experience, and relatable knowledge! Surgery is no quick fix... yes, you can lose a lot of weight but surgery does not fix your brain's response to food, and the reasons that you gained weight in the first place. Sometimes post-op patients have the sensation of being STUCK between feeling physically full and mentally/emotionally left unsatisfied within a meal. This is a dark place to be.
This book gives you tools and techniques that dig deeper into the emotional side of your behaviors, and why you react instead of respond to life-stressors, addictions, and other emotionally tied interactions with life. Emotional/Mental health after surgery is very important to your bariatric success. If you are STUCK, this book addresses key points to get you out of old patterns and behaviors and onto a happy, joyous, and free new you!

Inspiring

I find Kristin's story inspiring. I'm also a therapist that's considering getting bariatric surgery. I bought this book, because I am having trouble making the decision. I love how Kristin doesn't downplay the emotional issues or psychological piece. I would see her as a client if she was in my area. She really helped me jump start my journey. I imagine this is a book that I may listen to again and again depending on which road I take in my journey.
