Group Description

The primary goal/target audience of this list is to create an online community to serve the needs of people who are AT LEAST ONE YEAR out from WLS & facing the difficulties of maintaining weight loss, of learning how & what to eat, which supplements to take, the problem of weight regain or the inability to reach goal. To try to encourage "LONGER-TERM POSTOPS" to stay online, people less than one year out from surgery MAY NOT POST TO THE LIST, but may quietly lurk, listen & read the files to educate themselves to the challenges faced by longer-term postops. WHEN JOINING PLEASE WRITE YOUR EXACT SURGERY DATE IN COMMENTS SO WE CAN APPROVE MEMBERSHIP WITH POSTING PRIVILEGES, if no surgery date is entered you may be rejected until this is provided. Those less than a yr who submit date will be approved to lurk but not have posting privileges until their 1 yr anniversary!

This is a large, active & supportive group. We respect each other's opinion and do it in a NURTURING & SUPPORTIVE WAY. DISRUPTIVE/RUDE responses are NOT allowed at any time or for any reason. OFFENDING PARTICIPANTS may be put on permanent moderation or unsubbed from the list without discussion or explanation!

Participation for those less than 1 yr out is prohibited *SO PLEASE DO NOT ASK FOR AN EXCEPTION we strictly enforce the 1 yr anniversary for consistency & clarity* http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/GastricBypass-InfoCentral/ is a very informative and helpful list for those in the honeymoon phase/less than 1 year post-op.

IF you don't want mail in your inbox, we encourage you to sign up under 'SPECIAL NOTICES' vs 'NO MAIL' so the owners and moderators are able to contact you if something special is going on.

No info shared should be considered medical advice. All medical advice/needs should be discussed with your Health Care Providers.
