Publisher's Summary

In this book, Dr. Vuong offers pertinent psychological and self-improvement tips that are necessary for success after weight loss surgery, which is a rarely covered topic. Drawing on his professional experience working with obesity patients and his own personal journey for enlightenment, he has provided a concise yet profound manual for losing weight and gaining enlightenment. This book does not discuss the various weight loss surgeries, complications, insurance coverage, food tips, or the usual dieting tips. This book deals more with what really matters after weight loss surgery - how to change your mind, and hence your perception of reality. Whether you are a newbie to weight loss surgery, a seasoned dieter, or just someone seeking enlightenment, this book is a must-listen.

Dr. Vuong is an internationally renowned bariatric surgeon and the current director of Lovelace Bariatrics in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He is recognized for his unique Patient Empowerment Program, in which he personally leads weekly educational sessions for his WLS patients. A popular speaker, Dr. Vuong starred in TLC's hit show, 900 Pound Man: A Race Against Time.

A great resource for any bariatric patient

Written with every bariatric patient in mind, this well written and concise book gives you the tools and direction to change the way you both see yourself and the world around you. The old you was obese, so the new you doesn’t want or need to be. Change doesn’t occur from the outside, but must be created from the inside, and it all begins in your mind. I will cherish this book and listen to it often, as I am just beginning my journey to be my new me.

Not what I expected

Generic Life Lessons not Weight Loss Surgery Specific. These are lessons you can better dive into in a longer lesson book. Lots of quotes from other people. Expected more knowledge from actual bariatric surgery mental process. Disappointed.

excellent

It was helpful for so much more than WLS. All struggles related to weight are addressed.

No story with old advice

No new information and nothing helpful. WLS is a huge decision and this is tired and trivial information.

very basic

common sense really couldn't find anything it the book that wasn't on his YouTube channel with lots of quotes that are readily available on the internet. I thought they'd be more in this book than a-z quotes of life.

Its just a bunch of cliches.

Treat others how you want to be treated might make me a better person but has nothing to do with weight loss. Complete waste of time and money.
