A Must Read for Lifetime Maintenance with Peace and Balance, after Weight Loss Surgery. Maureen Conolly (Mandeville, LA, US) - This review is from: Practical Advice for Lifetime Maintenance After Bariatric Surgery. This book provides a no-nonsense, honest, heartfelt account of the author's struggles with weight loss, including two weight loss surgeries. Her first surgery was years ago as one of the first kind of stomach stapling procedures, and with very little after care or behavior modification, she gained the weight back. In 1995, there was still not as much aftercare as there is presently. However, after her new gastric bypass surgery, this time she adjusted all aspects of her lifestyle (brain, physical, and spiritual) to stay committed to living the healthy way. She has maintained her weight loss now for 17 years! Her advice is practical and realistic. She clearly communicates that weight loss surgery is not the easy way out and not a miracle cure. I believe it is a great read for weight loss surgery patients, especially those that have not gotten a firm understanding that the surgery is only the first step in a lifelong requirement to remain focused and vigilant on eating right, exercising regularly, and dealing with emotional eating issues. Pam's personal stories of struggle, adversity (including Hurricane Katrina), and personal loss are very powerful to show just how it IS POSSIBLE to be a successful long term weight loss surgery patient. There are not a lot of books or other materials that focus on the real work that is required for permanent weight loss maintenance. I highly recommend this book to weight loss surgery patients and non-surgery patients that were formerly morbidly obese and are looking for guidance on long term maintenance.
