Wow isn’t it amazing how quick time goes by? – Here we are Easter 2015 – I guess its very true that in life we need to make the most of all our gifts especially the gift of time…
Talking about time – did we have a great time at the Bariatric Surgery Conference on the 22nd March 2015! a BIG THANK YOU! to our Surgeons – Dr Etienne Swanepoel and Dr Andre Potgieter , all the organizers, our venue, The Support Group Committee – and everyone who shared their Success Stories with Us…We are all inspired to continue forward on our own life-changing Weight-Loss and Weight Management Journeys.

Bariatric Support Tip Of The Month
There are 2 important things to remember after surgery:
1. Keep on moving – stay active go to gym, walk , work in the garden, clean the pool or wash the dog whatever you like doing as long as you get a 45 minute workout every day.
2. Be Food-wise, although it is important to be mindful of what you eat, more important ( certainly for me) is portion size – make a fist… see your fist that’s the size of your stomach…try to keep portion sizes within that range.
