I really appreciate this group of wonderful people, I only wish I would have had support like this when I first had my RNY surgery back in 2004. I love the insight and camaraderie that comes along with being part of this group.

I was added to this group by a friend of mine when I was in the the planning stages of surgery and am now 8 months post op. This group has been loving, encouraging, informative, and humorous the whole entire way. From the Admins to its members, this is a spectacular support group. Weight loss surgery isn’t easy, and this is a wonderful place to learn from all sorts of experiences and walks of life. I’m so thankful for this group!

I am on the journey and about to have surgery coming up in September, I found this group in Feb when a friend who has had WLS added me. All I can say is I have never seen such a more beautiful community of people who do nothing but lift each other up and encourage one another. Every one really treats each other as family and offers a lot of support and willingness to help others on their journeys. There were times I thought about quitting but thank you to these individuals I feel confident I am making the best choice for myself.

I'm in the process of getting a sleeve to rny revision with hiatal hernia repair. So, I joined a revision group. Let me tell you, there is no group like BWLF! You guys are awesome. I left that group yesterday. A member of the revision group posted that she was doing a pouch reset to help her lose again. Another member was just so vile. She commented resets dont work. She then began a tyrade of trying to argue with a few people. All I could think is ,this would NEVER be allowed on BWLF! I'm so thankful for this group and the admins and mods who make sure we are all being supported, not ridiculed.

This group has been a support system and a life-line for myself and so many others. The availability and attention given to every member is just beyond comparison with any other group I’ve been involved in.

I accidentally stumbled across Family 1 year ago. In that time I've received so much love from a woman that was a complete stranger, who had decided to change the world for the good. This stranger, is now one of my closest, dearest, friends, this once stranger is now my sister. A woman who has a heart of a warrior and thinks of others before herself, who gives selflessly without a second thought, and loves so fierce, you can feel it from the words she types.
So thank you Gail for loving us strangers so unconditionally, we're all so grateful for you.

I’m still pre-op but this group has been so kind and welcoming. So many questions have been answered for me. Thank you!

I'm just over 3 years post op and the support I get and share with this group is indispensable. It's more than just about weight. It's about overall health. Everything we do affects how we think of ourselves and so many of us eat for comfort. With all the support in all areas of our lives it makes eating a part of our lives instead of the driving force behind it. This group has literally saved my life with the amount of love everyone has.

This is one of the most loving and accepting groups I've ever been in. The support they provide goes beyond just answering questions about diet and exercise. Everything we do is affected by and affects our journey. This group understands that and it's why I love them so much.
