I will be having my surgery next year and so I am using all this time I have to get ready and I have been learning quite a bit
Some good books (they are also available as e-books) I have found are:
*The Weightloss Surgery Workbook-Deciding on Bariatric Surgery, Preparing for the procedure, and changing habits for post-surgery success- by Doreen Samelson
*How My diabetes was cured, Bariatric surgery is the Answer- by Anne Gamache Martin
*The Complete Idiot's Mini Guide to what you must know about Bariatric Surgery- by Margaret Furtado, MS., RD., LDN., RYT.
*Okay, I've gone through Weightloss surgery, Now what do I do?-by Joanne M. Moff PA-C
*Eat It Up!- by Connie Stapleton, Ph.D
*Practical Advice for Lifetime Maintenance After Bariatric Surgery- by Pamela Harrelson.
There are also books out there with recipes, etc for afterwards.
I am working on my consistency with my food and exercise tracking. so, far that is doing well.
Onward with my Journey!!!!
