Bariatric Support Group
Whether you are considering having weight loss surgery or you’ve already had reshape dual weight loss balloon, gastric sleeve surgery, or another bariatric procedure, we invite you to join our monthly bariatric support group.
Our patient N.E.W.M.E. Support Group (Nutrition, Exercise, Weight Loss, Motivation, Encouragement) is designed to provide you with the opportunity to connect with other bariatric patients, learn about the latest in bariatric diets, and celebrate your successes with people who truly understand the unique challenges and rewards that come with weight loss surgery.
Ongoing Support and Motivation
Each month, our patient support group is facilitated by a member of our bariatric care team who is available to answer questions, address concerns, and offer additional resources. You’ll also have the chance to hear from fellow bariatric patients, discuss different experiences that can occur after weight loss surgery, and learn about the latest in post-surgical diets and exercise plans.
We talk about the emotional issues involved with bariatric surgery, including how surgical obesity treatment can impact your relationship with your friends, family, and coworkers. At our bariatric support group you can learn about stress management strategies, coping skills, and ways to deal with situations such as holiday meals and eating in restaurants.
Connecting With Fellow Bariatric Patients
Our patients often comment that the friendship, encouragement, and motivation they receive through our bariatric support group is an invaluable part of their weight loss journey. Participating in our group can help overcome feelings of isolation that may develop after bariatric surgery. You’ll receive the support you need to stick with your long-term weight loss goals.
We always encourage our participants to share their success stories, and we’re here to help work through any concerns you might have. Our bariatric support group is open to men and women of all ages.
