The first few years following weight-loss surgery can be a very exciting experience, however there may be a time when you may reach a plateau and maintaining the weight loss takes effort and hard work. It is not uncommon for patients to slip back into old habits, regain a few pounds and to become discouraged. If you are having this experience and need education, motivation, or rededication, you may find the Post-Surgical Weight Loss Support Group as helpful and supportive. This group is design to help you to stay focus, in control and successful. There is a monthly weigh-in, which is an important element of accountability and provides an opportunity to reconnect and rededicate yourself to your long-term goals. The Post-Surgical Weight Loss Support Group will accept 10 to 15 participants at a time and is scheduled to run for 6 months from June 11, 2022, to December 10, 2022. In-Person Sessions will take place every other Saturday from 01:00 PM to 02:30 PM.
