Missouri Bariatric Services hosts a support group in Columbia, typically, on the first Monday of each month. E-mail announcements are sent monthly with the specific date and time of the support group. Presenters and topics rotate.

Support group is a great place to meet other people who have gone through weight loss surgery. Many benefit people benefit from attending support group. Support groups help them stay motivated and give them ideas on how to address a certain challenge they may be having. We look forward to seeing you!

Overcoming Your Barriers and Obstacles to Physical Activity

 

We all know that being physically active is good for us yet for many different reasons it is not always easy to be active. Some say they are too busy with work and family commitments or they have physical limitations but be real with yourself. These are all excuses. It may be just the right time to overcome your barriers and obstacles to physical activity. Join us for a discussion of practical solutions, as we map out realistic strategies to help you become more active.



After this support group, participants will be able to:

1. Identify what you struggle with, and what limits you from being as active as you would like.

2. Discuss the benefit of problem-solving your limitations, and in the end safely being active.

3. Learn effective strategies and techniques to realistically manage barriers to activity.
