Why I'm Not Doing Weight Loss Surgery #1

Because it's stomach surgery, not brain surgery.

I have binge eating disorder and emotionally eat. That's not going to go away just because they reduce my stomach or digestive tract. And, in fact, if I don't resolve the eating disorders first, not only will I not qualify for the surgery, I will have all sorts of issues after the surgery and will regain the weight afterward.

When I don't binge eat and don't emotionally eat, I lose weight. Period. I have absolutely no problems losing weight with a reasonable amount of calories and exercise.

The thinking part has to come before the physical part and when the thinking part is working, the physical part comes naturally. Why would I do it artificially?

  1. And don't we all look for the "easier, softer way" sometimes? I'm not saying that one can find it, the easier way, just that we all do fall for the fantasy that it exists.
