150 patients returned to the Southcoast Center for Weight Loss Saturday for a reunion as the group marked its own milestone: 3,500 patients since Dr. Rayford Kruger launched the unit nine years ago.It is now the largest and busiest bariatric surgery program in New England, with three surgeons who perform about 650 procedures at Wareham's Tobey Hospital a year.

Do you obsess about your BODY or APPEARANCE? Your brain might be different.

It's not uncommon for those of us who have lost massive amounts of weight with bariatric surgery to have major issues with body dysmorphic disorder or problems seeing ourselves the way we really look.

Some post weight loss patients suffer terrible with body dysmorphia — some to a much lesser degree.
But, could brains actually be different in those who have BDD?

This pleases MM.  Very much so.  I might have suggested Dr. Sharma.  Thanks, OH for taking the suggestions from the community.  We like change.

Obesity Help –

ObesityHelp, the leading weight loss surgery support community, announced today that Dr. Arya Sharma, world-renowned thought leader on obesity prevention and management will be the ObesityHelp 2013 National Conference Keynote Speaker.” The two day conference takes place in Anaheim, California.

On Saturday, October 5, 2013, Dr. Sharma will present his keynote “Moving Beyond Diet and Exercise”. Dr. Sharma told ObesityHelp, “As anyone battling obesity is well aware, the age-old mantra “Eat-Less-Move-More” (ELMM) is about as effective for weight management as watching a comedy show is for treating depression.”

During his keynote presentation, Dr. Sharma will discuss the many complex causes of weight gain and the many barriers to weight management including, time, stress, genetics, metabolism, sleep, trauma, mental health, medications and many others, to reveal why ELMM approaches to obesity management are so ineffective.
