Caring Support

As you embark on your weight loss journey, you will need the continued support of a carefully assembled weight management team. Support groups are also a fantastic source of encouragement and information during the long, and at times, arduous weight loss process. Surrounding yourself by people who are sharing a similar experience can be extremely reassuring, and you will meet people who are at all different stages of the weight loss marathon. People who regularly attend weight loss support groups have much higher success rates than those who go it alone. Be sure to ask your bariatric surgeon or the physician monitoring your weight loss program to refer you to a local support group.
