Hello Everyone - I don't know if you remember me or not, but I used to post here for support a long time ago, so I thought I would re-introduce myself. My

Welcome to the board!

I do not usually hesitate to give advice (even on subjects I know nothing about!) but I feel like the only advice I can give you with your medical history is to talk to your doctor.

Is it possible your insurance might cover Weight Watchers meetings?

"I wish there was a diet support group where you could do what diet you are comfortable with, weight in and really get pumped up for the next week."

Well, that's what I use this board as. It's free, and very supportive! We do the plan we feel comfortable with, and post about it. The girls here are great at giving "high-fives" or advice when asked. And! We're all in the same boat. We're all very overweight people - or we've all BEEN very overweight people. So we KNOW, and UNDERSTAND the struggles with motivation, stigma in society, etc...

Hope to see you on the board often!
