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!

insightful and helpful in helping me on my journey

I really enjoyed listening to this book and ended up buying it because I wanted to reread it and highlight the areas that impacted me. I also ended up getting the other book in this series along with the work book and journal. If you've have bariatric surgery, this book will help you mentally on your weight loss journey and give you keys and insight on how to be more successful. Enjoy! Also, my favorite part, stop waiting for motivation to come like a bus. Get off the bench and GO!

Good reminders and new tools for success.

This book has been a great asset in getting me back on track and digging deeper in the psychology aspects of my weight loss struggles after bariatric surgery. I look forward to reading it again and utilizing the tools given to help reach my own Bariatric surgery goals.

best bariatric book

Having weight loss surgery is just the beginning. It addresses the physical but you have to address the mental in order for it to work. This book does a fantastic job of helping one address the mental/psychological aspects of weight loss.

Perfect for someone in there bariatric program

This book was amazing to help me gain confidence and understanding in all the aspects pertaining to bariatric surgery. I was a month out from surgery when I listen to this and it really helped keep me on track with my pre-op diet and the excitement for surgery instead of such anticipation,as well as giving me all the areas to look at in my life. We all need to focus on more than just the food.

A must for the minds of Bariatric patients

The author has a remarkable and unique insight into the mindset and habits of people who go down the road of Bariatric surgery. She is both a practicing therapist and a post Bariatric patient. Particularly helpful chapters on emotional eating and how to change your mindset so the success and maintenance of your surgery is guaranteed. Well written and researched. Narrated with enthusiasm and humour by the author herself.

repeat repeat.. re... bored!

I don't feel this book is good value for money at all. The narration was stilted, the content repetitive and some sentences and paragraphs are literally read twice. It is really just a load of other peoples quotes one after the other. Its a shame as I was expecting real tools and advice in this book, not meditation techniques.
