Staying motivated after weight loss surgery is crucial for long-term success in achieving and maintaining a healthy weight. Here are some tips to help you stay motivated:


Set realistic goals

Establish achievable short-term and long-term goals. Celebrate small victories to keep yourself motivated.


Keep a positive mindset

Focus on the positive changes in your health and lifestyle. Remind yourself of the improvements in your overall wellbeing and quality of life. Remind yourself what life before weight loss surgery was like. It is not often that someone says to look back but in those moments, you might be searching for motivation a quick reminder of how your life was before surgery can be all you need to stay on track. Ask yourself do you ever want to go back to how you were before weight loss surgery? A look back can be a great reminder of how far you have come. But don’t dwell on it, look to the future and be proud of what you have!


Create a support system

Surround yourself with supportive friends, family, or a support group. Share your journey with others who have undergone similar experiences.


Regular follow-up with healthcare professionals

Attend regular follow-up appointments with your healthcare team. They can provide guidance, monitor your progress, and address any concerns.


Stay active

Incorporate regular physical activity into your routine. Start with activities that are suitable for your fitness level and gradually increase intensity. Exercise can boost your mood and contribute to weight maintenance.


Adopt healthy eating habits

Follow the dietary guidelines provided by your healthcare team. Focus on nutrient-dense foods, stay hydrated, and avoid high-calorie, low-nutrient options.


Track your progress

If you feel comfortable to do so, keep a journal to track your food intake, exercise, and emotional wellbeing. This can help you identify patterns and make necessary adjustments.


Celebrate non-scale victories

Recognise and celebrate achievements beyond the scale, such as improved energy levels, increased mobility, or better sleep quality.


Educate yourself

Continuously educate yourself about nutrition, fitness, and overall wellness. Knowledge empowers you to make informed choices and understand the importance of a healthy lifestyle.


Reward yourself

Treat yourself with non-food rewards when you achieve specific milestones. This could include buying new clothes, enjoying a spa day, or taking a weekend trip.


Mindful eating

Practice mindful eating by savouring each bite and paying attention to hunger and fullness cues. This can help you maintain a healthy relationship with food.


Join a community

Participate in online forums, local support groups, or social media communities related to weight loss surgery. Sharing experiences and advice can provide motivation and encouragement.


Embrace change gradually

Understand that the weight loss journey is a gradual process. Embrace and appreciate the changes happening over time.


Seek professional guidance

Consider working with a nutritionist, therapist, or personal trainer to receive professional guidance and support tailored to your needs.


Remember, motivation can fluctuate, and it’s okay to ask for support when needed. Building a healthy lifestyle is a continuous journey, and staying motivated involves making sustainable changes over time.
