Weight Loss Support Groups
Weight loss surgery is just the start of a lifelong commitment to health and wellness. But at Sansum Clinic’s Bariatric Surgery Center, you’re never alone on the journey.
If you’ve had a procedure with our bariatric surgeon, Marc Zerey, MD, join us for a free monthly weight loss support group. Our registered dietitian, Emily Luxford, facilities discussion on a variety of life-after-surgery topics, including:
- Weight goals
- Nutrition, including vitamin and mineral guidance
- Exercise plans
- Behavior modification
- Calcium and bone health
- Stress coping skills
We talk about the transition for you and your family and friends, and help you make any adjustments. Plus, it’s a great opportunity to share triumphs and challenges with people on a similar path to weight loss success.
No registration required. Free to all who attend. Register to attend our next support group meeting.
