Meeting other women who are going through the same experience can be tremendously helpful to you and to your long-term weight loss success. Woman’s hosts a monthly support group meeting open to all weight loss surgery patients.
Our weight loss surgeons recommend ongoing support to help you achieve the greatest level of success.
Each session is led by one of our weight loss professionals and focuses on a specific topic. Participants have the opportunity to talk about the topic. Sharing with others who are going through a similar experience often creates new friendships and special bonds — all in a comfortable, supportive environment.
Participating in a support group can keep you motivated, help you celebrate milestones and provide different perspectives on everyday successes and challenges.
Our support group meetings are held on the second Wednesday of every month from 6:00-7:30 PM in the JE Dunn Conference Center, located in Woman’s Hospital. Meetings are free and open to the community’s weight loss surgical patients.
If you’ve had surgery, are in the pre-operative process or are considering weight loss surgery, you are welcome, regardless of surgical facility, surgeon or surgery type.
Please give us your suggestions for future support group meetings.
Support also means educating yourself about your condition, your surgery and others who’ve experienced the same challenges as you. These helpful resources are a great start:
