Hi there;

I am getting my band on July 10 and would like to know if there are any local support groups, forums etc.

Thanks :)

Hey Goober!

I'm across the pond from you in Sutton. I have heard of weight loss support groups being held at the supercentre in Barrie. That would be people using any form of weight loss surgery or even trying it on their own as far as I know.

Waving from across the pond...lol

I will try the supercentre.. I work in Newmarket so I may look there as well.

Are you driving to Mississauga for fills?

Hi Goober!:tt1:

Ya, I will go back to Mississauga for fills. It's just over an hour from my home and it's free to go there. Hey, maybe some bandsters would be interested in getting together in Newmarket sometime? For a lunch or dinner or something. People from Sutton, Keswick, Barrie, Newmarket etc. may be interested.

Hi Everyone,

It looks like we could manage at least a few of us to get together in Newmarket! That's great! :thumbs_down:

HELLO! I'm a Barrie girl! Banded 04/18th and I've actually gained 30lbs and rising. No restriction and I'm at the point where I've completely given up. A support group in the area would be great. I take the GoTrain everyday, so no probs meeting in Newmarket... but Barrie would be better! Let me know!

Well we could rotate where we meet between Newmarket & Barrie. I could do lunch Tuesday and Thursday, dinner anytime. How many people are really interested and could get a rotation really started.

Hi Maria,

I'm really interested! I'm off work for the summer with my kids, so I am pretty flexible with lunch or dinner most days. I'm a 35 minute drive from Newmarket, 1 hour from Barrie, so my preference is Newmarket to meet but I wouldn't mind going to Barrie once in a while.

Holland Landing... pretty.:crying: I always love driving the 400 through the farms. It's probably the only part of the 400 I like.
