Accepting your New Body Image

by MR.SIVA GOUNDER Consultant

The journey to weight loss can sometimes be a long road, particularly after gastric banding or gastric bypass surgery so it’s not uncommon that it takes our mind a little while to catch up with what we see in the mirror.

Losing weight can change our lives in many ways, some we can anticipate from the beginning of the journey, but others can become apparent later on, once we have achieved our goal.

First of all, be kind to yourself. You have reached a point in your weight-loss journey which at one time or another may have felt impossible.

It’s very common for those who have slimmed down to continue to feel as if they are physically heavier and even struggle to shop for clothing to fit their new smaller frame.

If this is you, then know that you are not alone and that many people who have been through weight loss surgery procedures experience the same transition period.

For some, it’s a simple matter of taking time to accept your new body and getting used to seeing it in the mirror and dressing a changed physique.

For others, the weight loss may have left behind some loose skin, which can be removed surgically.

This is a common procedure at Perth Weight Loss and Surgery and can greatly assist in boosting the confidence of a client who has slimmed down but is concerned about how their stretched skin looks.

Body image is a very individual and personal thing and often the way we view ourselves is not how others do.

We are our own harshest critics and sometimes it’s useful to take a step back and realise how far we have come in making that long-awaited change.

Reaffirming the benefits you will continue to enjoy after weight loss such as overall improved physical health, a longer and healthier life as well as being able to enjoy conveniences that were too difficult to seek out while overweight, will all help to reassure you that you are doing a great job and deserve the new body you worked so hard to achieve
