Support Communities for Pre-Op Patients

For Pre-op patients, attending one of our support groups is a great way to learn more about the procedure from people who have gone through it themselves. It can also allow you to connect with other potential members in your post-operative journey—connections that may prove invaluable down the road.

Post-Op Patient Support

Post-op patients benefit from attending support group meetings for emotional support and practical advice. Members in the same phase of their journey can provide encouragement, motivation, and advice on managing their new lifestyle changes. These groups are informative, and participants converse, trade recipes and clothing, and even engage in fun activities like hiking or cooking classes!

About Journaling

Journaling is a great way to keep track of your progress and document your journey. It can help you stay focused on your goals and provide an outlet for any feelings that may arise during the process. Keeping a journal can also help you become more aware of the habits that have led to weight gain in the past and make it easier to recognize them in the future.

Journaling can Lead to Insight

Before surgery, keeping a journal can help prepare for the procedure.

Writing down what you eat and how it makes you feel can provide insight into your current lifestyle habits and help you develop healthier routines before surgery.

After surgery, journaling helps track your food intake and exercise routine, both critical for successful weight loss. It’s important to remember that everyone’s experience is different, so don’t compare yourself to others or expect too much too soon. Celebrate small victories and reap the rewards as you consider bariatric surgery to achieve your goals.
