The Importance of Support Groups

Weight Loss Support Groups vitaladySupport groups provide information, encouragement, and support. They reduce stress and isolation and increase social connections. Research consistently indicates that those who participate in a support group – whatever the issue – cope better and are more successful in their situations. For weight loss surgery patients, attending Weight Loss Support groups regularly is one of the most common habits of those who have had long term success with reaching their weight loss goals, keeping their weight off, and staying healthy.

We recommend participating in both in-person Weight Loss Support groups and online Weight Loss Support groups. Most areas now have community in-person Weight Loss Support groups that are great for face-to-face support and provide a measure of accountability. A wide variety of online weight loss surgery groups are available for every phase of your journey and your particular interest. Below you will find a few of the many online groups
