On 10/19/16 I had a Gastric Bypass procedure. The weight has been coming off at a very good pace and I'm loving it, but I still feel like I want to talk to and meet others going through the same thing as far as bariatric surgery procedures go. I've noticed that there isn't much out there for bariatric support besides online groups, which I find to be too impersonal and I know many other people feel the same way as well. My goal here is to develop a casual in person Meetup support group for others who have done any bariatric procedures. It's such an amazing and unique thing to have weight loss surgery and that's why we need to come together to empathize and help each other out along the way!
