Are You On Track? Griffin Bariatrics Programs Can Help
Weight loss specialists have noticed that occasionally bariatric patients regain some of the weight they had lost after surgery. If you are dealing with this kind of challenge, you know how overwhelming it can be at times. But now we have good news for you: our team at Griffin Bariatrics has created the “On Track” program, a comprehensive support program that will help maximize and maintain your weight loss results.
And that’s not all – the On Track program also provides education and teaches skills that help reshape your whole lifestyle and boost your confidence. This program, available at Griffin Hospital in Derby, CT, focuses on three crucial aspects of weight loss: nutrition, exercise and emotional needs.
We have created the On Track program to help you in several different ways, depending on your schedule and needs:
- Monthly comprehensive On Track workshops (Saturday morning, 9:00am to 12:00pm)
- Monthly On Track support groups (Wednesday night, 6:30pm to 8:00pm)
- Bariatric exercise classes and programs (mornings and evenings throughout the week)
The On Track workshops run once a month on Saturdays, and are designed primarily for those who had their surgery at least six months ago. These free sessions encourage the participants to share experiences and encourage each other in a supportive environment, and are packed with valuable information in the following areas:
- Cooking demonstrations and nutritional counseling
- Exercise classes
- Psychological issues and stress management (including meditation and support sessions)
Curious about what patients have to say about our workshops? “As always, it was a great day,” says Becca. “I loved finding out that I can hula-hoop just like when I was a kid! (Couldn’t have done that a couple of years ago.) The meditation was great, and it was good to find a healthy Shepherd’s Pie recipe. I plan to make it this weekend.”
To experience the On Track workshop for yourself and get extra motivation and encouragement, register for our next workshop online.
During our Support Groups, which are scheduled once a month on a Wednesday night, you will meet with our licensed counselors and with other post-bariatric patients who are going through similar experiences. The empowering discussions will focus on a variety of topics ranging from managing emotional issues, to staying motivated, overcoming addictions, creating a healthy body image, improving your self-esteem, using meditation to control stress, and others.
