Support Groups

Losing weight can feel like an isolating experience, but it doesn’t have to be. In fact, forming a community can help improve your weight loss results. A community is meant to help foster growth on your weight loss journey, but also be there to help when you fall into a rut. 

Support groups offer bariatric patients to vent and offer advice to individuals who are going through a similar journey as them. Seeing someone else cope with the same struggles helps individuals form a sense of comradery – it’s them against the problem. This eliminates the lonely feelings that individuals can feel while trying to lose excess weight. 

Our support groups at WellStar are meant to be close-knit group of your biggest supporters. When you walk into the room, you’ll have a group of individuals who will cheer and congratulate you on your wins and also support you during your losses. Unlike other support groups, WellStar aims to be interactive and unique. Each support group have interactive activities such as Zumba night or cooking demonstrations. WellStar strays away from traditional support groups and instead forms close-knit bonds through collaborative engagement. 

Find your community today by reaching out to WellStar to join one of their support groups. We’ll welcome you with open arms.
