Are you considering weight loss surgery?  It’s a big step, and as much as we’d like it to be, the surgery is not a magic bullet.

You will have to change your eating habits or suffer the agony of gaining the weight back!

Fortunately, there’s some help.  Author Gail Engebretson takes you through what weight loss surgery is like, how it feels post-op.  The excitement of seeing the pounds melt off…then the struggle to come to terms with her new body and keep the weight off!

If you’re considering weight loss surgery, you’ll want to read this book before you make your decision.

    This book is the author’s first-hand account of bariatric surgery and the two or three years after it. It includes objective medical information as well as the author’s journal entries which detail her feelings, struggles and successes. The two physicians who performed the surgery and oversaw her post-surgery care, write a chapter at the end with more helpful information. I found the mixture of these two formats really gave a well-rounded and complete account of what the author specifically, and bariatric paients in general, experience. Furthermore, it was an inspirational and absorbing read, as the author did not gloss over the difficulties, nor did she glorify surgery as some miracle cure for overweight. I came across this book at the circulation desk of the library where I work, and though I am not considering bariatric surgery at this time, I believe this book would be helpful to anyone who is trying to lose weight or has issues with being overweight.

    Gail has a true talent for getting to the meat of the issues that post-bariatric surgery folks have to deal with. The book was very honest and did not gloss over the difficulties all bariatric patients must face. If you are considering or have had bariatric surgery this is a must read!

    This is a great book – especially for those of us who are 3-4 years post op and having issues with weight gain. Not only does she walk you through her surgery, the post-op, and first year, she addresses the challenge of trying to maintain our weight loss in the years following surgery. It was a great help to me and gave me lots of hints and ideas to be successful. It brought me back to the basics and that’s what I needed.

    Everyone getting the surgery should read this book. I have not only read it once and loaned to my friend but I have reread it again.

    I am a licensed psychologist who works with surgical weight loss patients every day. Gail’s book, Fat No More, is the best book I have read for people considering weight loss surgery because she tells her own story AND provides important factual, medical information as well. In addition, it is pleasant reading! I hightly recommend this book. I wrote Eat It Up: The Complete Mind/Body/Spirit Guide for a Full Life After Weight Loss Surgery and I LOVE Gail’s book!
