<p>I'm in the Irving area!! I think this is a great idea. When I went to the support group my dr recommended it felt more like another nutrition class..but I have surgery next month and I want to talk to people about their experience and what they went through and all that!! I love the idea.</p>

Hi there! I live in Irving too.

So what do we need to do to get this started? I haven't had it done yet, but I'm very interested in either meet ups or something. I'm trying to learn everything I can before my surgery.

I have thought about it, but I just don't think I could fit it into my schedule. I would be happy to co host with someone.

Hi all!

I have volunteered to be a leader of the DFW chapter.

About me:

My name is Kris and I live in Irving with my husband and two sons, ages 10 and almost-5. I work full-time as a pharmacy technician in a call center. I go to school online full-time as well. In my spare time (what spare time?), I write a blog at BariatricCeliac.com. Eventually, I hope that my blog becomes a good resource for both Celiacs and those interested in bariatric surgery alike. I had gastric bypass on May 20, 2014, so I'm still pretty new to all this.

As you can see, I already keep pretty busy. However, I am passionate about being able to have people to lean on during all phases of their bariatric journey. Since our area is so large and since I am newer to the world of bariatrics, I would be thrilled if someone else would be willing to co-lead with me. One thing I love about Irving is that it is so centrally located in the metroplex. Would anyone be opposed to meeting somewhere in Irving?

I would love to hear any and all ideas about our meetings, and I can't wait to meet y'all! :)

I would like to help out/be involved but wondering if it might be better if you have someone like @@music1618 to co-host with you? (I think she said she is 2 years out).

Then again, since you are both Bypass maybe it's not a bad idea to have a different surgery represented. Just thinking out loud. I actually think experience is probably more important than surgery type.

That being said I am happy to get involved if wanted/needed. Or even if a third volunteer was needed. PM me if so :)

Irving is probably not a bad location, I am in the city (Dallas) near White Rock Lake.

Anyone else have thoughts on meeting places?

It would be very beneficial to have a group leader and co-leader!

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
