Weight Loss Surgery

Dear Recovery Friend,

Thanks for visiting our Weight Loss Surgery website. We hope you will come to see us often. We are a Special Focus Loop of the Recovery Group and our mission is to provide a safe and peaceful place for you to share your experience, strength and hope with one another. Many of our members are also members of OA and, although we are not officially affiliated with that organization, we are a Twelve Step Loop.

Our group has a very special mission. We provide a place to work our own recovery program and also to carry that message to others. We are here together to build one another up ... to accept each of us as we are ... to support each other ... and not to judge one another. We offer you safety and serenity.

The Weight Loss Surgery loop has a second mission. Many COEs have had surgery to obtain the physical recovery we seek and the spiritual and emotional recovery, we feel, is only obtained by working the Twelve Steps. Some of our members have already had the WLS, some are scheduled to have it and some simply want to learn more about it. The surgery itself is neither recommended nor not recommended on our loop. That decision is strictly between the COE and his/her doctor.

Our loop is a place where 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, you will have a safe haven where you can interact with others who are suffering. Our loop does not just focus on our physical problems. We focus on our emotional and our spiritual needs as well. Our recovery home is a place where we hope you can experience growth spiritually, emotionally and physically.

Our way of finding recovery is through the Twelve Steps . We have reached a place in our life where this may be the last stop on the bus ~ the last house on the block. And we have come to believe that there is a power greater than ourselves and that we cannot recover alone.

There is only one requirement for membership in our loop ~ the sincere desire to stop eating compulsively. If you have this desire and would like to become part of our recovery family, we welcome you with open arms. Our mission is firm ... our purpose is resolute ... our goal is to insure a better quality of life for compulsive eaters worldwide. Through the miracle of the Twelve Steps, tools to reach and maintain a state of abstinence, one on one sponsors, online recovery meetings, full service loops, study loops, other special interest loops, dedicated Trusted Servants and many other tools of recovery to offer you, we will accomplish our mission, achieve our purpose and exceed our goals.
