In this week’s episode of BariatricTV we have a Drop Zone Freak who has a new birthday. In the Dumping Ground we take a look at an email we received that discusses accountability. Then, in Altered Reality, we discuss the “Why Now” syndrome, if you’re a bit further out from surgery you’ve probably experienced it. And we wrap things up in the Freak On segment with a review of a website from a self proclaimed Bariatric Guru.


  • The Drop Zone segment features Susi Unupi.
  • We received an email asking us if being in front of the camera helped us with accountability.
  • We admit that it does help, but we’re not always perfect.
  • Toni talks about gaining some weight after weight loss surgery.
  • Toni has also decided to start a blog to help her stay on track.
  • Toni’s blog can be found at www.NotaHotMess.com
  • If your a ways out from weight loss surgery you have probably experienced the “Why Now” syndrome.
  • Before surgery you may have felt invisible as folks walked by and didn’t even notice you.
  • After you have lost weight you might find that people are paying more attention to you.
  • Have you changed, or has their perception of you changed after weight loss surgery?
  • We do a quick review of The Bariatric Guru

    You guys are dating yourself when you know “Aquarius.” LOL! I know just about every word, too!

    Thanks for the info about Bariatric Guru’s conference. I’m headed over to check out the Nashville event right now! I hope it’s on a day I can go.

    Toni – don’t let ANYONE razz you about your hair. So sexy! As Danielle posted on FB, I’d do ya!

    D – I saw that skinny bod walk past the camera. Looking good, girl!

    Lynnda – I love your new hairstyle, too! But I miss the flower. :(

    Hey Tammy,

    Hmmmmm did they take the Nashville meeting off the books? Or did BTV screw up? We’ll have to look into it. As for razzing Toni, to be honest, I love the new doo. But it wouldn’t be BTV episode if we didn’t razz her about something :) And where Danielle is concerned she is doing GREAT!!! No complications so far and she’s rockin the gym. I am so proud of her!

  4. It was a rough week, T2.. I wasn’t feeling the flower.. but it will return.. I promise.. :-)

    Mikey – that’s what makes BTV episodes so great! I have come to expect the banter back and forth and love it.

    Lynnda – LOVE the sleek new look. Very Veronica! You rock the retro.
