WELCOME TO OUR FREE SUPPORT PROGRAM
THE “RULES” CLASS SUPPORT GROUP WEBINAR
We offer a free comprehensive bariatric aftercare program and believe education is key to patient success. We perceive our job to be two-fold. First, to provide a great weight loss operation and second, to teach you how to use it correctly to keep the weight off. We want weight loss surgery to be a long-term solution to your weight loss goals.
THE “RULES” CLASS SUPPORT GROUP
EVERY FRIDAY 1:00-2:15 PM
The Rules are the key to each patient’s success. We recommend four of these classes during the first year after surgery. Part of your success will depend on how well educated you are about your 'tool'. The rules will teach you how to use your tool. Hunger and portion control is achievable when the rules are followed correctly.
The goal of these classes is to help patients identify and start changing their eating behaviors and lifestyle. These classes are another opportunity to learn more about ourselves and our relationship with food. The dietician and psychologist help patients learn about nutrition, how to cope with stress, assist patients in identifying and then modifying their eating behaviors as well as their lifestyle to further their health and weight loss goals.Support Group follows rules class and provides an opportunity to meet other bariatric patients and share struggles, triumphs, and efforts to change. All discussions occur in a very positive and motivating environment. Family and friends are encouraged to attend.
