Weighing Your Options For Losing Weight: A Checklist

If you’re considering weight-loss surgery or medical weight loss, use this checklist as a guide.

Read enough magazines or watch enough infomercials and it’s easy to lose sight of the real goal of weight loss. Achieving a healthy weight is about much more than just looking good in a swimsuit.

So much more.

People who are in a normal weight range have less risk for chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes and cancer. Losing weight also lessens the burden on your weight-bearing joints.

For people who are extremely overweight, weight-loss surgery or medical weight loss can be a way to put them on track.

Are you a good candidate? Use this checklist to find out:

  • I have a body mass index (BMI) of 40 or more, or a BMI of 30 or more along with an obesity-related condition such as Type 2 diabetes.
  • I have already tried dieting and exercise to lose weight.
  • I know weight-loss surgery or medical weight loss isn’t a quick fix and that I have to maintain a healthy lifestyle after surgery.
  • I have health issues that might be helped by weight loss, such as Type 2 diabetes, heart disease, sleep apnea, high blood pressure or high cholesterol.

If you said “yes” to three or more of the statements above, take the next step and watch a free online seminar about bariatric surgery or medical weight loss. You can also call 678-312-6200 for more information.
