Kickstart that “fresh bariatric mindset” again in order to feel re-motivated, confident, and successful with your tool… regardless of how far out from surgery you are.
Banana is an online bariatric support community focused on helping weight loss surgery patients navigate struggles before, during, and after surgery. We offer weekly support groups, educational courses, and family-style friendships with others on a similar bariatric health journey.
Right after surgery, losing weight felt relatively easy. But as time went on, you may have started running into a few road bumps that made you second-guess your progress and weight loss trajectory.
Perhaps you caught yourself comparing your weight loss to others on a similar bariatric journey and thinking; “Am I losing enough? Am I doing this right?”
Maybe you went through a few weight stalls during the first year of surgery that made you feel like you were never going to get past those same pesky pounds that kept making the scale go up and down.
You may have felt like you didn’t have the kind of support you thought you were going to have after surgery. All of a sudden the struggle felt ten-fold, leaving you with the feeling that you were all alone and that no one was understanding of what you were going through.
Or, perhaps you had to navigate through an extremely challenging time in your life: the loss of a loved one, a drawn-out divorce, a stressful career and demanding work schedule. The only emotions left in your empty tank of gas were anxiety, depression, and the overwhelming feeling of wanting to give up.
These are all very real and common reasons why weight regain happens in 30% of patients after surgery.
There IS a way to feel back-on-track with your health goals and to start hearing that; “I can do it!” inner voice starting to speak up.
At Banana Bariatrics, this is what we’re here for. We’re here for YOU. And we understand the struggle that led you to us. On the good days and bad, we’ll always be here to support you with love, encouragement, and compassion.
Most importantly, we want to help you feel back-on-track and re-motivated again inside our warm and welcoming bariatric community- Banana Bariatrics.
“Never have I felt closer to a group of people that are so far away from me. People on the outside do not understand our circumstances. I joined Banana to have a consistent support system post surgery. To validate our mental, emotional, and nutritional goals.”
“I love having continuous support and long lasting friendships that feel more like family.”
“I enjoy being around others who can help support me when I need it and understand my situation. Not everyone can relate to us. I joined to make new friends as well as to help find a way to get myself back on track and refocus my priorities on my eating.”
“Other online bariatric sites felt too big and not near as personal. Once I did the trial with Banana, the personalized welcome and sense of family and support really won me over. Banana Teams and online support groups are an added bonus. This group really does feel like family.”
