Support in a “Pin”, a “Post” and a “Tweet”

At Dr. Kahlil Shillingford’s weight loss practice, patient support is a major component in treatment pre and post Sleeve Gastrectomy (Gastric Sleeve), Lap-Band or Gastric Bypass surgery. Motivated individuals from South Florida including Fort Lauderdale, Palm Beach, Miami, and the Tampa Bay have already experienced being part of our highly skilled bariatric team. Through patient education, treatment, and long-term behavioral and nutritional support, bariatric specialist, Dr. Shillingford and his patients have achieved remarkable weight loss. Post operatively patients are transforming their lives, and one of their best strategies for staying motivated is to share their goals with others.

Since our world has become increasingly global it has never been easier to share daily activities with a group of people at the click of a button. The use of internet-based applications has made it possible to interact, participate, and engage with other like-minded individuals all day everyday. Really! Just think – Our thoughts are always just a tweet, status post, or pin away from reaching the masses – What a wonderful thing! For those on a weight loss journey this is an especially great tool for providing accountability inspiration, and endless motivation.

How exactly do you ask? It’s simple! By sharing with others your intentions to exercise, you are making a commitment to not only yourself, but to those you shared this with to actually execute your workout. Step number 1: accountability is complete. You can also find and share great recipe ideas that will inspire you to eat consciously and also show to your friends your will power and creativity. Step number 2: inspiration, check! Lastly, posting about your progress and receiving feedback and support from others will make you feel proud and excited to keep up the good work. Step number 3: motivation, done!
