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
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.
