Overview

Beyond the Refrigerator: Navigating Life after Weight-Loss Surgery speaks to the physical and emotional changes that are necessary for one to be successful after weight-loss surgery. In easy conversational tones, Linda Ouellette, LPC, talks of her journey through this process, as well as the journeys of others. Highlighting the inner changes that have helped her along the way, Linda invites you to join her in exploring what's not working and what is working. You will read about the experience of her husband as her ever-important support person. Linda addresses such core topics as shame and secrets, perfectionism, and blackand-white thinking. She offers solutions such as relying on your inner survivor, changing your vocabulary, and defining sanity. Many people have high expectations for weight-loss surgery. Linda brings the discussion down to earth and shows what it really takes to recover. Linda Ouellette, LPC, is a licensed professional counselor in Tucson, Arizona. She received her master's degree in counseling and psychology from Prescott College in 2001 and has worked in private practice as well as serving as a trauma therapist at a world-renowned rehabilitation center. She is expanding her private practice to serve the bariatric community. She had weight-loss surgery in February 2008 and has both struggled and rejoiced in the health and success she has attained. She is a Chicagoan by birth but has lived in Tucson since 1983 and calls the Southwest her home.
