I’m Succeeding At Weight Loss
The fear of success occurs in patients when they realize an authentic change is happening and they are moving forward using their life. To have bariatric surgery is to pursue an allusive wish that is now being recognized – many patients have imagined all of their lives of successfully losing weight.
This time the magic is working and the pounds are melting away. This right time there is no familiar failure, no relapse to bad behavior. This time around we are eye-to-eye with success. Weight loss surgery guarantees successful weight loss, and increases the odds for long-term successful weight maintenance. Worries of success is very real because it’s about the unfamiliar.
We never have been successful at dieting or weight reduction, that’s why we are experiencing surgery. It shall take us into the unfamiliar. Worries of success is real. It is also futile. Weight loss will occur regardless of our greatest concern with succeeding. The fear of success can be an umbrella sheltering a great many other fears.
Some patients say they dread loneliness, that successful weight loss will lead to isolation. Some women fear the empowerment of healthy self esteem shall make them unlovable. Others fear success shall make sure they are susceptible to people whose motives are not genuine. Many women fear that successful weight loss will make them more appealing to others and may jeopardize their intimate relationships. For each and every fear there’s a weight loss patient whose fear has become a reality. One trimmed down female was lonely when her life-long friends “the Fat Pack” isolated her from the group.
Another woman, so empowered by her weight reduction and healthy self-esteem, became a career ladder climber with an individual focus for reaching the top – she became unlovable. Slimmed down solitary gals report suspicion of their suitors saying, “he’d have never cherished me while i was fat – his intentions are not genuine.” And many other newly svelte women have found themselves divorced and by itself.

A jealous partner simply cannot manage the man attention his wife was appealing to. Some worries of success are easy to dispel because they’ll probably never happen, like the fear of getting up morbidly obese again. However, many are real, plus some do happen. Whenever a person impacts great change, the associations around them are forced to change. Some friends will usually on cheer you, but others are steeped in jealousy and will denigrate you for continue.
Perhaps a suitor wouldn’t have enjoyed you before weight loss, but truthfully, do you love yourself? If not, how will you expect another person to love you? Some spouses shall embrace the new you, others with tremble and run in the wake of dread your change has awakened in them. I believe the fear of success goes in hand with the interpersonal inferiority we sensed as morbidly obese people.
As we realize successful weight loss we begin to think we don’t should have to be thin, attractive and healthy – they are reserved for the beautiful, smart, successful people. If we become these plain things – healthy, beautiful, thin, attractive, successful – we are frauds and hypocrites then. This is damaging and self-loathing behavior.
It leads to self-sabotage. Patients report uncontrolled behavior changes such as snacking, eating sugary or high fats foods and not exercising. When a patient falls into the downward spiral of self-loathing and sabotage they show a complete disregard for the four rules. Patients know very well what they are doing is harmful to them. Many admit feeling unworthy of weight loss success.
