Hello. I recently joined wellsphere, and noticed that there are no established teams for those who have had or are consdiering having weight loss surgery. So today, I started a team aimed at this population. I'd like to invite anyone who has an interest in being a part of this team to join me.
My name is Patrece. I am an LPN, a certified bariatric support group leader, a certified life coach, specializing in working with bariatric patients or those considering bariatric surgery, and I am in the process of becoming a certified back on track facilitator.
I am also a bariatric patient. I had Roux-En-Y Gastric Bypass surgery on July 21st 2008. (Just over 7 months ago.) To date, I am down 84 lbs. I have gone from a tight size 24 and am now in a size 14 /16, and still losing.
