Surgery does not make you stop eating sugar, carbs, or all of the other foods that got me to 313 pounds. Surgery won’t get you off the couch and to the gym for 60 to 90 minutes. I had to make positive changes even after getting weight-loss surgery.
Depending on your size, losing 10 pounds can be just as difficult as losing 100 pounds. You will plateau and get frustrated, but you just need to keep trying. Walking for 15 minutes is better than sitting on the couch any day. One good decision is always a start. Find a friend who you can workout with, get a Fitbit, download the Couch to 5K app, set a small goal, and beat it out of the park. Just give it a shot and keep on trying. Those little changes build up over time.
