Hi everyone,

I’m hoping you all can help my partners. I’m looking for resources directed at people who are supporting their significant others through wls. It can be a book (or even just a chapter), pamphlet, website, YouTube channel, podcast, or forum. Heck, even if you just have a bit of advice for them from your lived experience I’m sure they would love to hear it!

I plan to get gastric bypass. Both my partners are very supportive and want to be as helpful as possible. One of them will be able to attend the informational class my bariatric department has me go to but the other has to be working.

Thank you!

One piece of advice to your partners: don’t make you feel guilty or make negative comments about your weight loss. If they are struggling with insecurities with the changes you’ll make (with your body, with self confidence, with your lifestyle in general) then they should talk to you about it. They might struggle more than any of you realize, and that’s probably really normal - but you should just be aware. A major life change for you will be a change for your relationships too. Good luck to you, my friend. 😊

I think its great you have such a good support network.🤗

when i asked my support person he says everything is different and its not going to be easy but just give it time. he didnt look anything up. he was unable to attend alot of the things because due to covid they only allow patient in here. you should get a walking buddy too (30 mins a day is what my program requires) and if one of your support people cooks turn them on to some high Protein 'puree' meal prep recipes so when you get out of the hospital they can cook for you a little while you are healing.
