Toggle My Gastric Sleeve Surgery Journey - Tell Your Story My Gastric Sleeve Surgery Journey - Tell Your Story
Weight loss is easier when you have support. This forum is for providing and receiving emotional and psychological support before or after Gastric Sleeve surgery.
A buddy/mentoring relationship pairs a successful and experienced BariatricPal member with a novice and/or struggling BariatricPal member. Both partners work together through the physical, emotional, and spiritual components involved in weight loss. The goal is for both partners to achieve and maintain healthy weights. This is a win-win relationship, with the more experienced BariatricPal member having his/her weight loss reaffirmed, and the novice or struggling BariatricPal member building the confidence and motivation necessary to achieve his/her goals.
