Hi Faith. I had my band done by Dr. Clark (Dr. T's partner) on 5/12. I'd be happy to meet!! I've been looking for some sort of support group. I went to the nutrition class last night at the Careplex but it was just a quick here's what you should be eating and the support group didn't meet. Another lady there mentioned she felt like she was on her own too. I'd love more support groups!:thumbup:

Hey was wondering if anyone from the Hampton Roads area is still around here on the board? I was just banded back in April by Dr. T. Looking for some friends in the area to meet up with, and also any additional support groups around here besides the monthly one through the clinic.
If you find any other support groups PLEASE let me know. I have been looking for almost 2 years. I was banded in Mexico so no one will except me in the support groups around here. I've found you can't even pay them to let you in.

Could we start one ourselves? I'd be happy to do any organizing necessary. I think it really important to have local support. How about it anyone interested?

I'm so glad people have responded to this idea. What is close? How about Newport News? I'm in Williamsburg but willing to drive a bit if necessary.

I'm in Yorktown, I know of another person in the Burg and two others in Yorktown.

Almost any time is good with me if I'm in town, so are any others interested?

Maybe a restaurant, like County Grill or TGIF, I'm flexible :)

We could do a restaurant if everyone that wants to meet can eat :). If there is some one that needs to do lighter food is there a Panera or Starbucks in that area?

There is a Panera off of coliseum and Starbucks is everywhere. I would prefer Starbucks myself :)

        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.
