I hate to ask...but I am 24 pounds from my goal. My surgery weight was 276. I am 184. I have been this weight consistently since December. Surgery date was 6/9/20. No mater what I do , I can’t lose a pound. Yes, I have lost 92 pounds. I’m EXTREMELY happy, but I need to lose 24 pounds. I am so stressed. I have a personal trainer, he says I’m gaining muscle. I’m so close, yet so far!! What do I do?
125lb difference. 15 to go!
Today is my 5th Anniversary (May 15, 2014) since I had my sleeve surgery by Dr. McCarty! I worried about keeping the weight off, the surgery is a life tool. Starting weight 208 today’s weight 138. If I find myself slipping (gaining) I go back to my rules - “push protein”! Thank you Dr. McCarty for helping me make this life change!
Dr. McCarty is a competent doctor as well as his staff. Very thorough. I would warn patients to expect suprise bills from the hospital that are not in the estimate. I received a $3000.00 anesthesiologist bill that was only covered at about 5% by insurance because they were out of network. No one tells you before hand nor will anyone help you afterwards. Just consider it as part of the operation. Not saying don't do it just be informed.
I want to have this procedure done in the worst kind of way but I am getting A LOT of negative input from my boss about it. Just because his wife and daughter had a gastric bypass and gained their weight back, he INSIST this will NOT WORK FOR ME! I know he is wrong, but he said to ask about all the drawbacks of the sleeve, like how you can't eat certain foods, that you will get sick and throw up a lot and gain the weight back, He wants to rub my face in failure when things don't go as I expect. Is he right? Do the con's of this surgery outweight the pro's??? Help me be informed from your experience

Misconception: Bariatric surgery is a sign of failure.

Fact: While many people see bariatric surgery as taking “the easy way out,” the reality is that for many patients with obesity, weight loss surgery may be the only way they are able to achieve long-lasting, life-changing weight loss. Those who choose bariatric surgery have not failed. There are often biological factors at play that make some people with obesity resistant to weight loss and can prevent successful weight loss through traditional, non-surgical methods such as diet and exercise.

The fact about bariatric surgery is that it is not a “quick fix,” but rather a tool that, in conjunction with lifestyle changes, can help patients lose weight and improve their health. Success with weight loss surgery takes work, including sticking to a strict pre- and post-op diet.

How Can One Day of Bad Eating Affect Weight Loss Diets?
It is completely normal to see the scale fluctuate from one day to the next. Keep in mind that the number you see on the scale not only reflects the amount of fat on your body, but bone, organ mass, water, and bodily fluids should also be taken into account. Eating a meal that is high in carbs or sodium could cause you to retain more water for a few days, but after a few days of eating balanced diets for weight loss, most people see the number on the scale drop back down again.

What’s even more important than if you binged for a day is why you binged. Take some time to evaluate the reasons behind your day of binge eating. Is your weight loss diet too restrictive, making you more likely to overeat in a moment of weakness? A balanced diet for weight loss should not leave you absolutely starving, but giving yourself too many restrictions at once may require more willpower than you’ve got.

Are you experiencing an unusual amount of stress? Is it emotional eating? Did you spend the day on the couch, mindlessly snacking? If you can pinpoint the reason you fell off the wagon for a day, you’ll be better equipped to overcome the temptation and stick to your weight loss diet in the future.

We are excited to announce our October POTM Tory Garcia! "My husband and I both started this journey together because we were in a place in life that we wanted to be better versions of ourselves. We tried everything and nothing seemed to work for us. Reaching out to Dr Dill was the best decision we ever made. The whole team made us feel like we could conquer the world and that exactly what we plan to do. We are both 6-month post-surgery and we have both lost 100lbs each and still losing.
Weight loss surgery isn’t a magic wand that will make all your weight issues disappear. You must be willing to put in as much work as your tool.
Thank you to everyone at McCarty for giving my husband and I new lease on life.
Quote that helped me get through “nothing will change unless you change”.

Make protein the star of your breakfast. A high-protein breakfast can help reduce cravings and calorie intake throughout the day.

Sticking to balanced diets for weight loss is key in this journey, but don’t let one bad day derail your progress. If you don’t hit the mark on your diet today, remember that tomorrow is a new day.

Misconception: Bariatric surgery is not covered by insurance and I cannot afford it.

Fact: Insurance coverage for bariatric surgery varies from one provider to the next, but many insurance companies do offer coverage for weight loss surgery, assuming the patient meets the company’s requirements. Some of these requirements may include that the patient be over a certain BMI and/or have one or more weight-related health conditions. Many people don’t realize that Medicare and Medicaid often also provide coverage for bariatric surgery, particularly if it is determined to be medically necessary. For those patients whose insurance does not cover the procedure, most bariatric surgery clinics offer financing options for cash pay patients.

It’s normal to have questions about any medical procedure, but don’t let your questions or preconceived notions about bariatric surgery prevent you from making a potentially life-saving decision. If you have questions about bariatric surgery in Dallas, schedule a consultation with your bariatric surgeon in Dallas at First Baptist Medical Center. It’s normal to have weight loss surgery questions, but don’t let unanswered questions prevent you from making a life-changing decision.

Debunking Bariatric Surgery Misconceptions

Bariatric surgery is a life-changing, often life-saving procedure for obese patients who have been unable to lose weight with traditional weight loss strategies. An estimated 228,000 people underwent a bariatric surgery procedure in 2017 (up from about 16,000 in 2005), according to the American Society for Bariatric Surgery.

Despite its growing popularity, there are still countless bariatric surgery misconceptions and myths associated with undergoing weight loss surgery. These misconceptions may prevent some patients from making a decision that will not only help them lose weight, but also improve their health and extend their lives. We aim to debunk these myths and uncover bariatric surgery facts, including the success rate of common bariatric surgery procedures such as gastric sleeve and gastric bypass.

While the sticker price of weight loss surgery may be overwhelming to some, the unexpected costs of being significantly overweight may cost you much more in the long run. Here’s a look at some of the costs associated with obesity:

Annual health care spending. Studies have shown that people who are significantly overweight or obese spend more on health care each year than people who are not overweight — up to $4,800 more per year. Costs associated with being overweight include treatment for obesity-related diseases such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease, cancer and other health problems.

Lost wages. People who are obese take more sick days than normal weight individuals. That time away from work can be costly for the individual, but employers and employees also share the burden in productivity losses, as well as short-term disability and direct medical costs.

Lower pay. According to the Obesity Action Coalition, people who are overweight or obese earn less than their normal-weight peers, and are often passed up for promotions.

Increased spending on clothing. Many clothing manufacturers place an upcharge on plus-size or big and tall clothing. The cost increase is especially notable when it comes to women’s clothing.

These are just a few examples of the added financial burden experienced by people who are overweight. But perhaps the worst consequence of obesity is the risk of premature death. According to the U.S. Surgeon General’s Office, individuals who have a body mass index (BMI) over 30 have a 50 to 100 percent increased risk of premature death. Even being moderately obese could cut three years off your life.

All things considered, the decision to undergo weight loss surgery can save you thousands of dollars compared to the cost of obesity, but the benefits of weight loss surgery go far beyond the financial. Improved health, greater quality of life and reduced mortality are all worth the cost.

But let’s get down to the dollars and cents of the weight loss surgery cost.
