A Vacation Doesn't Have to Mean Weight Gain

 

The excitement of a vacation can come with many bariatric challenges. A vacation is a time we set aside to reward ourselves and rejuvenate our senses. It is a time to help us refocus and reexamine our goals before returning back to the hustle and bustle of our busy lives.  Planning ahead can decrease the negative impact that going off your routine may cause on your weight loss or maintenance goals. This support group is designed to help participants think about how to access a variety of activities so that the vacation does not revolve around food. A vacation can be a beneficial time to recommit to your health and plan for ongoing success.



Participants will be able to:

  1. Define what constitutes a good vacation good.
  2. Identify ways to plan physical activity while on vacation.
  3. Discuss ways to navigate meals while away.
