Weight Loss Support Group Meeting

6:30 pm - 8:00 pm, Tuesday December 4 2012
Location: Corpus Christi Medical Center @ 7101 South Padre Island Drive, Corpus Christi, TX 78412

Bariatric surgery may help you meet your weight-loss, health, and lifestyle goals. However, once you’ve undergone bariatric surgery, you’ll need to learn some new habits to make sure that you lose weight and keep it off. Remember, this is NOT a diet, but rather a weight-loss tool to help you change your life.

Nutrition
Regardless of the type of surgery you choose, you’ll need to work with your physician and a dietitian to construct a healthy diet plan to assure both weight loss and good nutrition. Before surgery, you will attend a nutrition class to learn all of the specific diet and lifestyles changes you need to make to be successful with your new tool. You will be working with our registered dietitian after surgery to ensure you develop habits that are realistic and sustainable throughout your life.

Lifestyle
Undergoing Bariatric Surgery is a major life-changing experience. You’ll have a whole new set of lifestyle guidelines for maintaining your weight loss and health goals. In the years leading up to the surgery, you may have struggled with the physical, medical, emotional, social, and professional ramifications of obesity. Bariatric Surgery may signify the beginning of your healing process in these areas. We encourage patients to work with a licensed counselor after surgery to help cope with the emotional and lifestyle changes.
