Exercise after Weight Loss Surgery for Our Patients from Biloxi and Gulfport

If you are suffering from severe obesity, then becoming more active can seem intimidating and sometimes even physically impossible. However, weight loss surgery at our practice has helped many men and women become more energetic and enjoy a wider variety of physical activities than they would have imagined. Because we want the process of getting active to be as smooth and easy as possible, we have devised several exercise guidelines for weight loss surgery patients at our practice serving Ocean Springs, Biloxi, Gulfport, and the Mississippi Gulf Coast.


The Tools to Succeed

Our entire team at South Mississippi Surgical Weight Loss Center is committed to assisting you so that the gastric bypassgastric sleeveLAP-BAND® System, and REALIZE® Personal Banding Solution procedures that we offer are only the beginning of your new lease on life. From the thorough, compassionate advice and guidance of Dr. William Avara, Dr. David Jenkins and our staff to the encouragement and companionship found with peers in ongoing support groups, our bariatric patients have the tools they need to incorporate exercise and physical activities into their lives. Along with new nutritional guidelines, your post-surgery exercise habits will help ensure that you do not regain weight and that you achieve life-long success.


Specific Guidelines for Physical Activity

You will find that increasing exercise or incorporating more physical activities into your daily life tends to become easier after having weight loss surgery; getting started is the hardest part. When beginning a regimen of physical activity it´s important to start slow and then build up. Try doing activities that are fun for you, such as swimming, walking, playing a sport, or working in the yard.

Examples to get you started:

  • Park at the far end of parking lots and walk
  • Take the stairs instead of the elevator
  • Cut down on television
  • Swim or participate in low-impact water aerobics
  • Ride an exercise bike

Generally, walking is one of the best forms of exercise for improving your overall health and maintaining your results after undergoing weight loss surgery at our practice serving the Ocean Springs, Biloxi, Gulfport, and the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Other activities can be engaged in as well; several of our patients have shared testimonials about how bariatric surgery has transformed their ability to enjoy participation in other physical activities such as playing with a child. With a little bit of imagination, anyone can find a form of exercise that suits his or her own needs and interests.
