This is a group for anyone who has a Lapband, thinking of having a lapband or has had any other Weight loss surgery. My focus is lapband, but this support group is for anyone who has had WLS. I'd like to get together for group support, including informational meetings as well as outings and events. Doesn't matter what you're age is, but I would like this to be a POSITIVE support group where we can discuss the good and the uncertain of our WL journeys, in a supportive environment. Most of all, I want to meet others who are where I am and know how important it is to stay focused on our journey while still having a normal life with family and friends who may or may not "Get it"!

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
