We encourage you to attend meetings as often as possible and to bring family, friends, and others who support you. We realize that attending support group meetings takes time away from your family and other day-to-day activities; however, we believe that attendance at support group is key to long-term success after weight loss surgery.
The meetings are both educational and social. Though, Weight Loss Surgery Education Curriculum is covered as part of each meeting, there is also time built in for questions, networking, and sharing of patient successes and challenges. Attending the Support Group is an excellent way to meet others who share similar experiences and also to make new friends who will support you on your journey. Please call our office for information on our Grapevine and Las Colinas locations.
