Manage Emotions to Manage Weight: Nobesity Bariatric Surgery Support Group Meeting #32

Obesity comes with significant emotional and psychological stress.

Bariatric surgery, by enabling sustained weight loss, corrects most negative emotions harbored by patients for lifetime such as depression, low confidence and low self esteem due to obesity.

However, some patients after Bariatric surgery too may feel a different type of emotional stress as they disassociate themselves with the old food habits and lifestyle.

Thus, our 32nd Support Group Meeting focused on managing emotions to sustain weight-loss after surgery.

Delhi-based senior psychologist Ms Nivedita Singh, our esteemed guest speaker of the day, addressed a group of over 100 patients and shared tips for making lifestyle modifications easy, avoiding substance abuse under stress, and developing healthy attitudes, beliefs and habits to sustain durable weight-loss after Bariatric surgery.

Hiten Raikundaliya and Swati Shah – two successful patients of Nobesity too were present in the meeting and shared their inspiring weight loss stories.

35 year old Hiten has lost 54 kilos of excess weight in the 11 months since his surgery and is now an active marathoner. He said, “In the past everyone would ask me about the best restaurants in town and now they ask me about the best sports events and marathon contests.”

Swati Shah, who has lost more than 80 kilos of excess weight since her surgery, used to be confined to a wheelchair before her surgery. It was a proud moment for her to step onto the stage on her own two feet and motivate the group.

Dr Manish Khaitan, Director Nobesity and team took questions and queries from the vibrant patients who turn up in large numbers to our monthly support group meetings conducted on last Sunday of every month.

 

Remember: Patients who attend support group meetings are more likely to stick to their post-surgery regime and ensure sustained weight loss. The support group meetings at Nobesity are free of charge and open to our patients as well as patients of other surgeons.
