The goal of this team is to support weight loss in any capacity. People have different needs. The surgery certainly can save lives, but it isn't for all of us, nor should it be our first choice. It's stomach surgery, not brain surgery and therefore you have to take care of what is happening in your head first. This team helps with that whether you have the surgery or not. I personally am dedicated to helping people lose weight without surgery if they can.

Life is happening now, not 10 pounds from now.

230 lbs lost without surgery, crazy diets, diet products, or extreme exercise- so have hope!

Thank you for the info. I personally am NOT exactly anti weight loss surgery. I went thru the process leading up to wls twice, but once, I chose not to go thru with it due to personal reasons, and the second time was due to health issues, the surgeon postponed, and later cancelled until I got those health issues cleared up.
In the mean time, I managed to lose 65 lbs on my own, healthy eating, exercise and lifestyle change.
Now, the issue of wls recently reared its head again when suggested by a doctor.
I am just really looking for support/chat/ideas, etc from people who have lost and maintained their weight loss without surgery.
I guess there is room for everyone to discuss, help each other. I was just afraid those who had gone the way of WLS might feel I was putting down their choice.
For me, I am looking for support from those who choose to go it alone, or I guess, go the non-surgical route.

Good afternoon ... SOFT_VAL67

I will attempt to answer this for you since INDYGIRL has had some medical issues in the last few days.

As for being dedicated to no WLS, INDYGIRL has been able to lose her substantial weight without any WLS but doesn't condemn others who choose to go in that direction.
We discuss all forms here and each team mate has our full concerns and happiness for thier sucesses.

I hope that helps and we will welcome you and your choices here on our team if you choose to join us! emoticon

Looking for answers as to what is the goal of this team?
I was searching on SP for a team devoted to NOT having weight loss surgery.
and this one popped up, but I couldnt be sure if that was the subject here.
Can anyone enlighten me??
I am really looking for a team or group of SP friends who are devoted to losing weight without going thru WLS.
If I am in the wrong place, I apologize.
Inbox me if you feel like it.
