Banding Together: Supporting the Banding Community

        Welcome Bariatric Coaching Meet Dr. Robbie Testimonials Resources Before & After Contact

Welcome to Banding Together, founded by Dr. Roberta “Robbie” Maller Hartman, PhD, CMC, Bariatric Life Coach.

Banding Together is for anyone with a LAP-BAND® or a Realize Band™ or an interest in adjustable gastric banding

as a weight loss alternative.

Dr. Robbie understands the unique challenges of overcoming obesity. She knows how you feel:

because she’s been there. Following her LAP-BAND® surgery, she lost over 100 pounds and went from a size 22 to

a size 6! She is living proof of the difference bariatric surgery can make in your life. (Read her full story here.)

And she can help you make the wonderful transition from the struggling, unhealthy you to a healthier, happier you

at all levels: physical, emotional and spiritual.

Dr. Robbie specializes in providing support during all phases of banding:

•  Deciding if surgery is right for you

•  Choosing a surgeon

•  Preparing for surgery

•  All the transitions after surgery

•  Long term success with your band

Why the Dragonfly?

• Like butterflies, dragonflies symbolize transformation or going past self created illusions that limit our growth

and change.

• We can use that symbolism to see through our illusions, allowing our own light to shine in a new vision.

• Dragonflies are reminders that we are light and can reflect the light in powerful ways if we choose to do so.
