If you have been fighting obesity you will probably agree that the process is definitely a life changing experience, and the multiple challenges that come with it can sometimes be overwhelming. Patients often describe their weight loss journey as a battle. Even so, it does not have to be fought alone!
Here at CHRIAS we know and understand very well what you may be going through. Our experienced specialists are committed to providing outstanding and comprehensive care to our patients. That’s why we have created a methodical support system to help our patients safely navigate through the difficulties of the weight loss process and achieve their personal best.
One of the valuable tools that we suggest for effective weight loss is our patient support groups. Years of successful practice have confirmed that support groups play a very important role in the weight loss process. Many of our patients attest that such groups have had a big impact on their success.
So, what are the perks of our support groups? Here is a short list benefits that our patients experience:
- Friendly, nurturing environment that promotes a feeling of comfort and empowerment
- Safe place to share concerns where bariatric patients can exchange their experiences without worrying about being judged or misunderstood
- Members of the group develop a feeling of comradery and encouragement that continues to affect their lives outside the group
- Regularly attending support groups helps patients feel more accountable for their efforts and stick to their weight loss resolutions
- Patients can make new friends and even find a “weight loss buddy” to help each other stay on track together
Our support groups are primarily designed for existing patients who have undergone a bariatric procedure; however, our doors are also open to those who are currently considering surgery.
