Welcome to your message and discussion forum. We hope you find this to be a place where you can speak freely, share openly, learn constantly and maximize the tool (weight loss surgery) you have chosen. If you're researching, we hope you'll find this to be an informative place where you can learn the realities of day-to-day living after WLS.
It's so simple to be a part of the support family. Just click on the Forum button at the top of the page. Then jump in and introduce yourself . . share your experiences . . share your successes . . share your ideas. We talk about everything here and we're all here to support each other and want you to feel comfortable, inspired and motivated. The journey brings with it so many friends and learning experiences that we can share at every phase. Don't be fooled into thinking that support is just for the early stages either. It becomes paramount to your long term success the further out you go.
We all want that long term success and none of us want to ever go back to where we began our stories. Remember what it felt like and looked like. Staying connected is a sure fire way to do that and to help others while motivating yourself along the way.
We're all in this together and we're happy you're on this path with us.
