Support and Successful Weight Control


There is no doubt that “support” is a vitally important component of any long-term weight control journey.  Support comes in a number of different ways.  For example, in the SP Program, we provide support via weekly counseling sessions, the daily blog we send, free monthly body scans when you complete your visits, etc.

Support also comes in the form of encouragement and facilitation from friends and family.  If the person striving to control weight has a spouse constantly bringing home/offering up ice cream and Oreos, that would be considered less optimal support than the spouse grilling lots of protein on the grill for lunches the next week.

The Serotonin-Plus Team has now launched another support venue.  We are reinvigorating our private Facebook Group page:  SP Weight Loss Community.  

The reason?  We believe that our patients interacting with each other by providing recipes, inspirational stories, feedback to questions/frustrations, and generalized support will enhance everyone’s journey.  

I will also be contributing to this private Facebook Group by periodically streaming on Facebook Live when I have a patient with a story, an inspiration or other motivating event that will help our patients to higher levels of health and happiness.
