Bariatric Weight Loss Surgery at Christ Hospital
176 Palisade Avenue
Jersey City, NJ 07306
CarePoint Health Center for Bariatric Surgery understands that losing weight is no easy feat, and that bariatric surgery is just one tool used along with diet and exercise to achieve a healthier body. To ensure that our patients experience a successful weight-loss journey, CarePoint Health offers a weight-loss support group that provides patients with camaraderie, support, and encouragement from other members who are also taking the steps to lose weight and become healthier.
Our support group meetings address the psychological and mental aspects of weight loss and surgery, as well as patients' nutritional and fitness concerns. Friends and family members are encouraged to attend to learn more about weight-loss surgery and to provide additional support.
During a weight-loss support group meeting, patients can share accomplishments as well as any frustrations they may be experiencing on the road to weight loss. Additionally, a weight-loss support group can help members stay positive when it comes to sticking to their diet and fitness routines. From a medical standpoint, the CarePoint Health bariatric team can identify patients who may be continuing to struggle with weight-loss following surgery, and can intervene to offer them further guidance and medical attention if necessary.
The key to achieving long-term weight loss is to have strong determination and stay dedicated to a healthy diet and exercise routine. If you’ve undergone bariatric surgery, contact us to learn more about the benefits you’ll gain from attending our weight-loss support group.
