Myth

People tell me that by having bariatric surgery, I’m taking the “easy way out”

Reality

To put it bluntly, this is absurd. It’s like saying heart surgery is the easy way out of treating blocked coronary arteries. It simply represents a failure to understand or acknowledge the fact that Severe Obesity is a disease for which surgery is the most effective treatment. For those with Severe Obesity, there is no easy or “cheating” way to lose weight. On the contrary, the lifestyle changes that must occur are anything but easy. If someone ever says this to you, your reply can be, “I have the disease of Severe Obesity, and instead of remaining a victim of it, I’m going to beat it.”
