Back On Track Together


Welcome to the Back On Track Together group.

This group is especially for weight loss surgery post-ops that want to get back on track, stay on track and discuss any topics concerning weight loss surgery post-operatively. The purpose of this group is to provide support to each other, motivation, inspiration, and to share ideas and strategies for change to incorporate healthy habits into our life.

We follow the basic rules of protein, water, vitamin supplements, and healthy nutrition along with regular exercise. We aren't going to tell you what to eat or make recommendations except for the basic foundation for a weight loss surgery healthy lifestyle. What works for each of us is special and unique. For specific dietary recommendations, contact your surgeon's nutritionist.

What we will talk about is the emotions and reasons we emotionally eat and what we need to do to stay on track. We will share our successes, challenges, and reach our goals of getting on track and staying there.

After all, back on track is knowing that it is up to you and the answers aren't found in food and eating.

I am really struggling. My health has gone downhill since my RNY almost 12 years ago. Food rapidly slides through my GI track nonstop because my surgeon used a stricture resistant (too large) stoma hole maker. My blood sugars have been worse since t
