The Benefits of Sharing Your Weight Loss Experience with A Supportive Community

22 July 2021

Perth Weight Loss has an online community network of over 1,000 members, and we encourage everyone that has a weight loss surgery at our clinic to join. We find that communicating with a network of understanding people can help our patients feel much more at ease throughout the entire bariatric surgery process.


Pre-Surgery Support

Many people let the fear of the unknown get in the way of their weight loss journey. Of course, the Perth Weight Loss team is happy to answer any questions you may have regarding bariatric surgery. However, sometimes it helps to hear from people that have actually gone through the surgery and have been in exactly the same position you are today.

Therefore, we encourage people to join our Facebook after their initial consultation, read through the various posts and message boards, and post any questions that you may have for the group.


Post-Surgery Support

After weight loss surgery, it is essential that you stick to your new diet and exercise regime. Being in a support group with people that also need to stay on their weight loss path can be highly motivating. You can find a group of like-minded people and help keep each other accountable to maintain healthy habits.

Also, it can be incredibly exciting to share your weight loss success with the community that has been with you throughout your entire journey.


Mental Health Benefits

Weight loss surgery can have amazing mental health benefits, with patients having a new lease on life after their significant weight loss. However, patients are much more likely to see positive results if they have a strong support system in place. The online support group can play a big part in this. With our dedicated Facebook page, you will always have someone to talk to that knows exactly what you are going through.

Perth Weight Loss and Surgery also have committed psychologists and dieticians on staff to help support you throughout the process.
