“The program offered at the BCC assisted me in many ways with my weight loss journey. The most important thing I learned was how to be accountable to myself and choose a healthy lifestyle. By the end of the program I wanted to eat mindfully and make movement an everyday part of my life.”
The Bariatric Counseling Center is an innovative program designed to help people who have struggled with eating and weight loss by providing therapy and support in a unique, multi-faceted group and one-on-one format.
