The term "best weight" was new to me. The idea itself was not, but I hadn't heard the term. I like it and the explanation that is given is excellent, along with the importance of grounding weight loss goals in reality and working in advance with the WLS team to come up with realistic goals and how to best achieve and accept them.
I'm a firm believer that in order for WLS to be truly effective, it must be accompanied by a change of lifestyle. I love that this book embraces that idea without forcing it on the reader. It shows by example and instruction, rather than merely stating it.
I also like very much that it encourages folks to seek out assistance in their mental health. Mental health is such an important key to success. The last chapter on Emotional Changes and Support was of particular
In my own personal journey, I entered the program at my hospital in 2014 but after a few months of dragging my feet on the prerequisites, I quit. Nine months later, I was at my heaviest weight and knew that something had to change. I started walking a little bit more and eating just a little bit better. Small steps. One year after I'd initially entered the program, the hospital called me and asked if I wanted to remain in the program or if I'd changed my mind. It was exactly the call I needed at that time and I gladly restarted the program. I was through the prereq's and had surgery within 90 days of that phone call because I was ready for that change of lifestyle.
By following instructions that were very similar to what is presented in this book, I was able to lose 190 pounds and I have maintained at my "best weight" for more than a full year now.
