Gastric sleeve weight loss surgery isn’t for everyone, but for those who opt to have it, it can be an excellent tool in the battle against obesity. No one’s perfect and it’s easy to mess up and regain weight even with such a tool. Some even wind up discouraged and give up.

If you’re not familiar with affirmations, they are statements that you repeat to yourself on a particular topic with the goal in mind of improving yourself. Affirmations affect the mind in a positive way consciously as well as sub conscientiously and can be a big source of motivation.

Here are some affirmations to help you make the most of your gastric sleeve surgery. Recite them either mentally or verbally daily.
