Post Weight Loss Surgery Support Group Meeting January

Hello friends! Hope you all are well!

Anna and Narmin here with information on the January post surgery support group.
The next support group will be on Thursday January 7th 2016, 4-5 pm, same place as last time.

Room S2-310 in the medical school building.   If you go past the Hiatt and Lazare auditoriums, you will see a sign above, saying “Basic Wing Elevator” to your left.  Take the elevator (or stairs) to level 2, just one level above.  Take a left out of the elevator, and follow the signs to Room 310, you will see it to your left in a minute or two.

Topics for January will include:

  1. Exercise: Less talking, more doing!!  We  will do 10-15 minutes of light movement to music!  Please wear comfortable clothes and shoes.
  2. Healthy Food Tasting: Anna is getting creative with her Spiralizer to come up with a low-carb “vegetable-pasta” dish.  Also on the menu – roasted chickpeas and veggie-burger patties.
  3. Mindfulness:  10-15 minutes of guided body-scan and breath focus.
  4. Discussion: Setting SMART goals for meal-planning, exercise, and stress management in the new year.

So mark your calendars for January 7!  Please RSVP by January 1st, by calling the Weight Center at 774-443-3886 or email Narmin at Narmin.Virani@umassmemorial.org

Happy Holidays to all!!  Don’t forget to keep BREATHING!  Enjoy your holiday feasts mindfully!!

Warm regards,

Narmin and Anna
