About me

Hello! I'm CeCe, When I underwent Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy surgery in June 10, 2021, I found myself navigating the challenges alone as there were few close to me who could relate to my journey. Those initial six months were especially tough. This experience inspired me to launch the BariDiaries Podcast, driven by my desire to hear and share diverse weight loss surgery stories, fostering deeper connections among us. Understanding that only those who've walked the path can truly grasp its challenges, I set out to create a platform for mutual understanding and support.
From its modest beginnings, the BariDiaries Podcast has blossomed into something remarkable, culminating in the inception of the Bariatric Cruise – an annual offering of cruises, retreats, and getaways tailored to our community's needs. With each passing day, our community grows stronger, providing invaluable support and guidance to those embarking on their weight-loss surgery journey.
Our community is more than just a network; it's a beacon of hope and empowerment, offering meaningful connections and fostering success in every individual's journey. Whether online or offline, it serves as your go-to hub for self-care and forging lasting bonds. Welcome to your virtual haven, where your journey is celebrated and supported every step of the way.
