If you would to be involved in the support groups through Weight Loss Surgery NZ and Foundations of Healthy Living Retreat, please read on…
The main Support Group will be open to anyone, as an online group through a programme called Zoom. This is a webinar tool where you will be sent a link to use, you install Zoom on your computer or phone, login and join in a group conversation. This can be either a video link or speaking only – it is entirely up to you if you prefer to remain anonymous and not video in – however we would like to encourage you to meet your WLS community.
These group meetings will be held fortnightly on a Sunday at 6.30pm. Robyn will present a topic each meet up followed by a time for a general Q&A. They will be around 1 – 1.5 hrs long depending on the number of people on the call .
If you have any specific questions prior to the meeting, please send them through to Robyn via messenger on her Facebook page ‘Your Lifebox’.
The first session is 30 December 2018, and will be an introduction into the group, a general meet and greet and a discussion on how the challenge of Christmas may be going for you :)
If you know of others that may be interested, please encourage them to also register through the FB page and Robyn will add them to the list. We also have a number of people joining who have not had surgery, as we recognise the skills for living a healthy life cover many aspects and people in different phases of their journey.
The long-term objective is that this group will then have area-based face to face meet-ups hosted by one of the Support Group members every few months, when they are in the area. Robyn will also be hosting some special expert guest presenters during the year for interviews on the process.
So, if you are keen to stay connected, receive support and meet with like-minded people, get in touch with Robyn Graves on firstname.lastname@example.org, or us at the clinic and we can put you in touch with her.
We do not heal in isolation, we heal in community :) Take the next step x
