There's a Houston Bandsters list on Yahoo; in addition to support posts, they meet monthly. There's also a Houston list on this forum.

Afterglow is correct - there is a centrally located Houston meeting. (The Houston area Bandsters group on Yahoo is how most find the group.)

I think the Houston Bandsters group meets next Saturday (January 21st) at 2 pm in the afternoon. But I will double check to make sure.
They are monthly meetings by held by two Banded women who have a business (called H3 - Hope Health & Happiness ) which assists others with the physical & emotional aspects of successful Weight Loss Surgery. Each of the two has lost 100+ lbs or more with the LapBand.
It's open to people who are banded or those who are considering the LapBand - good mix of people with opportunity to share and ask questions if you like.
The meetings are free (of course) and on meeting days, you're allowed to come up to an hour early and work out for free in their neat, clean workout area.

Houston Area Bandsters Support Group Meeting
4140 Southwest Freeway, Suite 100
Houston, TX 77027

(It's in The Greenway Plaza area - right off 59 South at the Weslayan exit )

Here's a map from their website


As I said, I will confirm that the meeting is next Saturday, and post back later if I get a chance.

Hope you attend!:)
