Welcome to Bariatric Weight Loss Family Foundation

What’s with all the peacocks BWLF?

Our nation is facing obesity issues and many are turning to weight loss support groups for help. The CDC reported that 37.9% of adults over age 20 are obese. While we are actively helping over 5,000 members to deal with their weight loss issues and support needs, we need your help to make our efforts go even further.

Family is a nonprofit 501c3 foundation and was founded January 9th 2016 by Gail Reeves. Bariatric Weight Loss Family came to fruition as a Facebook group after the founder experienced what most have: a lack of support for those struggling through the weight loss journey. The path so many of us had to choose for ourselves was and is not an easy one. We often refer to the group simply  as “Family” because we are more than just a weight loss group–we actively aim to be a holistic resource for support and well-being. Our paths, our journeys, are all encompassing–there is no part of our lives or days that don’t intertwine with being a weight loss surgery patient. We quickly grew the group gaining hundreds then thousands of members. We branched out to other social media outlets such as Instagram and Pinterest, however we quickly realized we couldn’t just stop at social media– at a Facebook group–we wanted to impact lives on a larger scale. We’ve started a few local events here in GA, and hope to extend nationwide over the following year. Check out some of our transformations we’ve seen in the last 3 years!
