Episode 94: Scaring The Newbies

Posted by on Oct 7, 2010 in Honeymoon Period, Psychological Issues, Reviews

In this weeks episode of BariatricTV we have a Drop Zone freak that you can really get your arms around. We take a look at another freak that is running for a cause. Talk a little bit about the “Scaring the Newbies” drama that’s been going on in the WLS online community. And wrap things up with a consumer guide to weight loss surgery.


  • The Drop Zone segment features Joel Sopp
  • Lynnda and Toni both want to be runners, but hate running!
  • Tom Blanchard is running the New York Marathon on November 7th and is looking for your sponsorship.
  • All donations will go to the Weight Loss Surgery Foundation of America.
  • You can donate on Tom’s site, or mail your donations to the WLSFA at the address below.
  • There’s been some drama in the weight loss surgery online community about scaring the newbies.
  • It all started after an article that claimed a higher suicide rate in post weight loss surgery patients.
  • Here at BTV we think that any information is good information.
  • We do a review of a great site that is a consumer guide to weight loss surgery
