Have you joined?
Are you a part of the Healthier Weight Facebook group yet? The group is secret, for patients only and is a fantastic source of support. Members and the Healthier Weight team offer advice, motivation and share individual experiences. Your will see posts from new patients like yourself, and experienced patients who are years further down the line. It's a great place to share your questions, feelings, successes, struggles and more.
We understand that weight loss surgery can be highly confidential so the group is completely secret. A secret Facebook group is the most secure of the three types of groups. The only people who can see the group and its members are the people added to the group. To the public, secret groups are invisible. One thing to take note of is that once you are a member of the group, you will see posts in your news feed. This is solely because you are a member, your friends, family and followers will not see these posts unless they're a member too.
How do you join?
We send an email invitation to you to join the group following your procedure. This email invite will come from Facebook so you may need to check your junk/spam folders. If you haven't received an email and you haven't been added to the group then it means we may not have your email address that is linked to the Facebook account that you use. If you're having any trouble joining then you can either drop our Facebook page a message and speak to the marketing team who handle group submissions, or you can email the marketing team on email@example.com .
