Recording personal development zoom meting
Thank you for the Zoom link, it was fantastic. The most important thing is how I feel with myself, with the pain, movements, size (measurement) and weight.
I am going to measure myself. I will try to stop eating from 7pm-11am. (water and tea only). sit and eat at the table on a plate and keep a record of everything.
That was a great presentation Helen. I really liked the way you explained the number and size and what should matter the most
Full 12month unlimited support post weight loss surgery program
“After seeing My Surgeon on 5 Feb 20, I was somewhat in shock and didn’t know what to expect, after making contact with yourself i was put at ease, you sent me the required info to help prep me for before and after surgery, that in itself was very valuable with the information provided both written and media, your information package was easy to read and understand, without this i would’ve been lost and under prepared for surgery.
After surgery i was a little confused in what to do however with your consultation I was put back on track, with both zoom and tele conferences all bases were covered in the requirements to move forward. The ongoing support you provide through zoom and tele conferencing is an invaluable tool. During your monthly meetings questions posed to you are always answered in depth and in very easy understanding responses which have helped me throughout my first 12 months, I can say unequivocally that my journey has been without any issues and has in my view been text book, I can also say this would not be the case if I didn’t have the on going support of your program, thank you.
I personally have found the monthly Zoom and Tele meetings to be a very integral part of the program, for me its a time to listen to others share their experiences and with that I will always learn from others different ways to help myself. These meeting bring together others with a common goal who share their experiences, and with that I can say there has not been a meeting where I have not taken something away to incorporate in my journey to keep me on track, this is infact a very invaluable tool for not only my journey but others, I have no doubt.”
Thank you Barry Brown
– the meeting we had with you presurgery was very informative. I found it a lot better being in a group rather than one on one. More so because others brought up questions that I hadn’t even thought of. You let us know all of the information in a clear and easy to understand way and you were able to answer all of our questions and put my mind at rest that I was definitely doing the right thing for me. I knew 100% that this would finally get me to where I wanted and needed to be.
You also provided us with the booklet to take home to read with all the info we needed. I used that as my bible every step of the way!!!
– The meetings are so necessary to us all on an ongoing basis. The follow up support is crucial!!! One minute you could feel on top of the world and the next you are doubting yourself because things hadn’t gone as you expected them to.
Especially a year down the track. In the early months you need guidance on what to eat, what not to eat, how much to eat, when to eat it and when to drink. Later on, it becomes a totally different dynamic. You know all of the above, but the questions that run through your head are quite different, and are crucial to your ongoing success. You just need to connect with others, ask your questions about stability, negative thoughts, being able to eat more later on and how you worry about that, and get the feedback needed. Whether you’re heading in the right direction so keep going, or tricks and tips on what you need to do to get back or stay on track. It can be a fine line. If we don’t stay in touch with you and the group meetings, your head can be your worst enemy.
– I think just knowing you are there when needed is vital and the best bit about everything.”
I wanted to give you my feedback that, I’m loving my 15 Kgs less body. I think, one of the best things I have done in my journey of weight loss is, having you as my dietitian. Your videos have been extremely helpful from the very first one, pre my gastric sleeve surgery to the last one, where you mention about vitamins and the amount of food to intake. The videos done by you are so much self explanatory. You have mentioned each and every thing about how the progression will take place. Anytime, I get stuck, I listen to your video for the stage, that I’m in at that moment.
Thanks very much for all the information provided, much appreciated!”
Recording of teleconference calls
Thanks Helen, yes I listened to the conference this morning and found it helpful.
Hi Helen, Thanks for the conference call last night, it was very informative. I was listening in but don’t like to ask questions and forgot to sent through beforehand. I just had a couple of questions if you don’t mind replying to my email?
