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.

4 Years Ago

I am finally 223 lbs. again. I think 7 weeks ago I was 230 so I am losing 1 lb. a week. It is going to be a slow journey to onederland. I do feel better though. I like the simplicity of dotting. I think some of my serving sizes are a little bigger

4 Years Ago

I lost another pound this week (224 lbs.). I knew this was going to be a marathon. On the other hand I haven't seen 223 lbs. in years! Dotting my food servings is easy. Tri

4 Years Ago

I am starting my 4th week bot. I am filling in dots on my dot diet sheet for a little over a week. I have to standardize the serving size of each food group so that I don't eat too many calories. I am finding a starch serving is 80 to 100 calories,

4 Years Ago

I am finishing 3 weeks bot today. I am down 5 lbs. I decided to follow the dot diet (3 servings of protein, dairy, starch, fruit, veggies and fat). I decided to eat every hour or 2 (at the rate of 1 dot per hour) after I read of a woman ate all day

4 Years Ago

I am adding 5 exercise dots to the dot diet plan so that I get a 1 hour workout spread though out the day. If it is good enough for the Mayo clinic I have to make it official for me. I am once again 225 lbs. That is 5 lbs. in the past few weeks. I

4 Years Ago

I am stalling. Is it the dot diet? Is it a stall? Am I not moving enough? Am I eating too many calories? Today I thought I'd track my actual food calories, also fill in my dot diet sheet and track my exercise. Hopefully this is just a stall after

Exercise: Are you all or nothing?
Don't have time for a full 60-minute workout? Don't sweat it. Divide and conquer. Shorter spurts of exercise, such as 10 minutes of walking spaced throughout the day, offer benefits, too. The ke

4 Years Ago

I have been dotting for almost a week. I really like eating all day. It would not be for most rny's but for me it works. I got my flu shot today. I am really tired this afternoon, but I had the flu a couple of years ago and I will never miss my flu


My BOTT Week

I did it!  I BOTTed all week long.  In large part, it was thanks to this group.  It is funny because I've wanted to do something BOTT for years since I've been with OH.  What is funny is that I knew i...
