This video discusses measures individuals can take to achieve and maintain a healthy weight after undergoing gastric banding surgery. One important habit to maintain is regular weigh-ins. Individuals who wait extended periods of time between weighing themselves may notice significant spikes in their weight once they do check. In contrast, scheduling weekly weigh-ins allows individuals to consistently supervise any slight increase to their weight and address it while it is still manageable. Another useful weight maintenance tactic is keeping a food diary to record all meals and snacks. Many people find that a food diary can reveal unconscious or overlooked eating habits that may contribute to excessive consumption and weight gain.
