Dallas BBGC weight loss surgery support group

Question Below Submitted By:  

Waning Woman (a patient from Dallas, TX)

Since surgery, I’ve found all of my support online. One of the groups that I found online was the Bariatric Bad Girls’ Club (bbgc). They have a strong facebook presence and a message board only open to registered members.

A small group of Dallas bbgcers decided to start a North TX chapter and have a real life support group meeting. I attended, and it was my first non-virtual support group meeting and it was a wonderful experience.

Being around people that understand what you’re going through, both physically and emotionally, is a really good feeling. No matter how understanding people are, unless they’ve had surgery, they will never really get it.

The thing about the bbgc support group is that there are pre-ops, post ops succeeding, post ops regaining, revisions, all walks of people. The discussions there are very real, sometimes heartbreaking, but mostly encouraging. Our last speaker is a weight loss surgery patient who is now and endurance athlete!

If you’re in the Dallas area and you’re looking for a support group, come check out the North TX BBGC.
