We live in unique times, the main concern for people through the centuries was having enough food to eat. We live in a time where food is so overly abundant we are putting ourselves into early graves by digging them with our mouth.
The number of weight loss surgeries in the United States has gone up from 13,000 in 1998 to a little over 200,000 in 2008 according to The American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery.
There are three kind of weight loss surgery procedures that have become common place today which are gastric bypass, gastric band and sleeve gastrectomy. Gastric bypass is a process by where the surgeon makes a small pouch and attaches a section of the small intestine directly to the pouch.
The gastric band is a procedure that wraps the upper part of the stomach that makes a division of your stomach into two parts. A small upper part which holds approximately a half a cup of food and a larger lower part. How tight the band gets tightened determines how much food you can eat and how long it takes to assimilate and digest.

There there is the sleeve gastrectomy which is when a thin sleeve of stomach is created using a stapling device. The sleeve is about the size of a banana and the rest of the stomach , as crazy as it might sound, gets removed.
Putting this sudden and drastic type of stress on the body by surgically rearranging your insides, like you would your living room, will, without question, have some radical side effects. Many have had mixed feelings about their bodies after such rapid weight loss. One of the reasons is due to the excess skin that is left hanging due to the speed at which they lose weight. Their bodies weren’t able to adapt and adjust with the change.
Although surgery can be done to remove this excess skin, many weren’t comfortable taking the risks associated with such procedures. Some of the risks can include hematoma and infections. This puts the patient in a difficult situation because now they have to decide if they should remain unhappy with their saggy hanging skin or risk a surgery.
Some suffer from chronic stomach and intestinal issues along with nausea, intense shaking and dizziness. Those who were lucky enough to skate by having any physical ailments didnt always walk away from surgery free and clear. They had mental issues with their relationship with food which can be very difficult to break.
Looking at food, as if its the enemy, isn’t any way to live. Life is meant to be enjoyed and experienced through all its ups and downs. Food is a part of that experience and in the right context make life quite enjoyable.
What we need to get away from is this victim mentality I see so many people have today; and its sad. America has seemed to have lost its toughness. This country was built by people who were tough as nails and that toughness is still in you.
Once you stop looking for the fast way out, or the easy way out, you will realize there is no short cut to success. Before you go down to your local doctor and begin asking questions about surgery options for you, I would suggest basing your weight loss on work you actually do.
Something that no surgery can ever give you is the feeling of accomplishment and pride you feel when you set your mind to a task and dedicate yourself towards it. It does not have to be hard nor does it have to be complicated.

The easiest way to workout is by simply walking. Walking has gotten a bad reputation nowadays because of all the cooler fad workout programs that are available today. Truth is, walking is still one of the best ways to burn fat, build up aerobic capacity, and increase blood flow in your body.
One discipline leads to another is something I believe in fully; and if you just get started on one simple discipline, then the others will follow. Business philosopher Jim Rohn once said “success is nothing more than a few disciplines practiced every day.”
