Come Listen Live!

We’ve got an amazing WLS community to connect with, so we’re fans of taking our show on the road. Our live shows are a great place to watch candid conversations with host CeCe and her WLS friends. They’re also a great place to have your own conversations with other BariDiaries listeners, and the amazing sponsors who support our weight loss dreams. Come on out, we’d love to have you!
