I'd like to find one too - I'm in Walla Walla. Pre-op but know I'll need support. Post if you've found or made a community.

Nothing found...yet. Been thinking I should start my own.

I'm new in Walla Walla, about 5.5 months post op. I've lost a total of 105lbs and have 25lbs to go to get to my goal.

Hey @@justmona and @@Eli Alexander, you all may consider looking at the Washington State Bariatrics Facebook Page to find others in your area.

Justmona, any luck? My husband and I had rny on June 19th and we live in West Richland. We aren't having any luck finding a support group either.

While I no longer live in WA, I would suggest joining the FB page mentioned earlier. It's been a wonderful resource! I lived in Pullman and as there were no support groups on the Palouse a small group of us would meet on our own. You might want to consider starting your own group. We discussed challenges, goals, accomplishments, etc. I miss the old group as I'm now in the process of finding a new one out of state.

I'm tying to use this link and it appears to be broken. Is the FB group still active?

Hey, came across the tri-cities post and saw this, how'd your surgery go? I just had mine on 11/8, so this is all new! :)

      Ok , you can all have a laugh at my expense today.
      As a kid i never cared for PB&J i would eat one if it was all that was available but i always preferred a tuna sandwich.
      The other day my daughter comes over with an All Natural Peanut Butter and as we are talking in the kitchen she opens this jar up and the smell just about knocked me over. It was amazing. So i got a spoon and tried it straight, no jellies for me anymore, I was blown away with the amazing taste. Now i don't know if this a case of taste buds changing or just good Peanut Butter but that was a great treat. So i now have a jar in my kitchen and while i only eat a spoonful of it on any given day i am still amazed at how great it tastes.
      Happy Holidays, I hope you are all doing great over this holiday period.

        Haven't tried these. Sound good! Thanks

        They are good but...1/2 the cookie is a serving. They are BIG but I found that I wanted it ALL!! When we went to Juarez Mexico for hubbys WLS they saved him. At least that is what he thought. LOL

      3. GreenTealael

        Trader Joe's have the single serving size!!!

      12/12I went against my weekly weigh in and cheated today the scale says I'm 248 😂How? Maybe it's wrong lol I just purchased the scale and it's my first time using it. I'll weigh my daughter to see if it's accurate. I was 255 this time last week well five days ago so I guess it's a real possibility. I'll let you know , I have been very picky about sugars and carbs even though I don't have a huge variety of foods to choose from. I'm super excited and hope everyone is doing great! Got to charge my iPad but I just had to share my happiness 12/15 hmmm I guess this didn't post lol. Well I have more to update when I went to do my weekly weigh in with a scale I know is accurate this Friday I was 244 so even less then my new home scale (which still says 248😹) I am super stoked that all my good choices are paying off. I haven't eaten any bad junk food or high sugar drinks or excess carbs, It's nice to actually see results from a diet huh guys. Unfortunately I put too much mayo in my eggsalad purée and I'm nauseous 🤢But to happy to let it bring me down. Hope everyone is doing good and happy
