When to Attend Support Group Meetings
When you're considering gastric band surgery
After you've had your weight loss surgery
You may have supportive family and friends, but nobody knows what you're going through like someone who's going through (or has gone through) the very same thing.
I probably don't have to tell you that having support - people you can share with and bounce ideas off of - can be a powerful thing. There is research showing that such accountability and support is more likely to lead to a positive outcome.
So find a support group near you...
...and attend live and in person.
What to do if there is no live local lap-band support group in your area
Find an online discussion forum and log on regularly.
A forum, just like a support group, is a place to find inspiration, motivation, information, new friendships...
...and of course, support.
Start your own blog on this website (for free) for additional support.
