I found another new-to-me weight loss support group in my area this past weekend.
All weight loss surgery peeps were there: RNY, VSG, DS, Bands, etc.
About 50+ people all together.
There was a guest speaker (a VSG'er who is also a therapist) who talked about battling our "inner critic." She said that she specializes in "Psycho-Drama" which I have no idea what that is, but sounds like a really cool name for a reality TV show. Right? I would watch it.
But wait, I digress.
Anywhoozle, then there was a 20 minute Q&A session with the local bariatric surgeon who hosts the support group. People asked awesome questions about the whether there was any usefulness to a medical alert bracelet and what foods are best to eat to build muscle. All very informative.
There was also a table that had a lending library of weight loss surgery books and people also brought in protein items that maybe they didn't like the taste of but thought others might like to try:
At the end of the meeting, people could "shop" and check out all these plastic tubs full of used/free clothes that people could borrow and bring back as they shrunk out of their clothes:
Have you found a support group near you? Tell me about it.
