Mindful Eating Using Your Bariatric Tool

 

How can you use your tool of bariatric surgery as a tool for mindful eating and turn on motivation for lifestyle change?  Join us for this dynamic support group to learn how to listen to your body, challenge your choices, and be in control of choosing what you want to eat, all while achieving lifelong health and wellbeing!  Regardless of the procedure, there are many built in reinforcements of healthy living than just dumping syndrome or food getting "stuck". After this support group, you will become more aware of how to maximize your surgical tool and adjust your choices to achieve the maximum benefit your tool can provide.  Learn reinforcements that will bring on awareness to enable your tool to work for you combined with ways to facilitate the lifestyle essential to reach your vision of lifelong weight management.



After this support group, participants will be able to:      

  1. Recognize and describe the signals their surgical tool provides to reinforce intuitive and mindful eating.
  2. Appreciate food and begin to change their relationships with food through definitive action steps.
  3. Describe opportunities to learn new "normals".
