Weight Loss Support Groups

For all the changes life brings you after surgery, our support groups are here to help you succeed. Saint Mary’s weight loss support groups have proven to be a powerful part of personal success. Each support group consists of patients at a similar phase of recovery, who can share experiences, offer moral support and suggestions. Our groups cover a range of both nutritional and psychological issues, including topics such as:

  • Breaking the weight loss plateau
  • The sleep-weight connection
  • Stress & boredom eating
  • Learning the art of mindful eating 
  • Family & social support

Groups meet on the second Monday of every month from 5:45 – 6:45 PM in the Saint Mary's Medical-Dental Conference Center.

NEW! Daytime support groups have been added for our patient's convenience. These meetings will take place the third Wednesday of every month from 10:00 - 11:00 AM in the Cardiology Conference Room. 

To register for either an evening or daytime support group meeting please call (203) 709-7722.
