When you are morbidly obese and there is a bleak future for you there are limited options for you to reduce your weight in a quick enough manner that you can avoid the health issues that can spiral you downward in a hurry. However, the lap band surgery is one thing that can work for you.

The reason that the lap band works is because it takes care of the problem that comes from overeating, even on healthy food and it also forces a reduction in calories in one way or another because you can only get so much food into the smaller pouch that is created from your stomach.

Now, if you are going to really make this work long term you have you find a way to change the things that got you to where you are at now. For example, no one who has a regular exercise program is morbidly obese. If you are to that point, then you can verify that you do not have an exercise program and you have not for a very long time, if ever. Chances are that you have become very stagnant and you do not have much activity at all in anything that you do. If you really want to lose weight and keep it off, you have to start moving. This is not easy for someone who is morbidly obese because the weight that is being carried is too much for the joints in the knees and the back. However, that should not stop you. Water exercise is a great place to start because it takes the weight off the joints and allows you to move more.

Another thing that has to change is the eating habits. There are numerous reasons why there are problems in someone’s diet and it becomes your job to figure out why you have issues in eating. Many times this is more of a psychological issue than anything. There are usually some deep seeded feelings that are causing the issue and it becomes your job to get the help that you need to get it figured out and worked out so that this is not an issue by the time that you are done with the lap band. Once you have these two things handles and you have had time with the lap band on you should see some major improvement and more importantly you will find that you can maintain things moving ahead after the end of the regime after the surgery.
