Fleming Island Support Group
Mastering Mindfulness

 

Were you ever part of the Clean Plate Club? Many of us grew up in households where we needed to finish all of the food plated in front of us. However, were we physically hungry for that amount of food or was it just a habit to clean the plate? The environment we live in has many external cues that may trigger overeating. The key is to find ways to disrupt the external appetite cues and rely on our internal hunger cues. Join us for this support group to learn ways to make mindful eating a daily part of your life where food is a source of nourishment and enjoyment. You will have time to explore your roadblocks for mindful eating and create an action plan for mastering mindfulness at each meal.



After this support group, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify their own ABC’s (antecedents, behaviors and consequences) related to food.
  2. Describe the difference between internal and external hunger cues.
  3. Determine their hunger and satiety cues.
  4. Understand how to eat mindfully.

Exercise is one of the most important factors in reaching and maintaining weight loss goals. Though there has not been specific guidelines established for patients post bariatric surgery, there is still criteria that one should follow.

Exercise is something that should be done both before and after surgery, so it is important to find an activity that you enjoy.  Over the next few months we will be offering different types of exercise classes to try out to see which you prefer.  This month we will be traveling to a new location to try a low-impact exercise class hosted by the Justice League.

Dining Out after Bariatric Surgery

 

Bariatric surgery drastically changes your eating habits. It can be a challenge making these adjustments when you're home, but what happens when you venture outside the comfort zone of your own kitchen? From hidden ingredients to huge portions, dining in a restaurant presents many obstacles for the bariatric diner.  Making poor decisions can sabotage your weight loss success.  Join us for this support group to learn strategies that will help you stay true to your commitment and dine out healthfully.

After this support group, patients will be able to:      

1)  Recognize sources of excess calories commonly seen on several types of restaurant menus.

2)  Identify behavioral changes necessary to stay on track with your eating plan while dining at a

     restaurant.

3)  Determine ways to choose foods from menus so that you can enjoy a restaurant meal while

     remaining on a healthful meal plan.
