Bariatrics weight loss group meetings

GREENVILLE – Looking for a Bariatrics weight loss support group? Little by Little meets the first Tuesday of each month at the Church of Christ on East Main St., Greenville. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. with the meeting starting at 6 p.m.

They are a non-profit group with no membership fees. Meetings are held in the basement, with a lift chair available if needed. Feel free to bring a spouse, family member, or friend along. You don't need to have had weight loss surgery in order to attend the group. The group is open to male and female.

The October meeting had a great turn out. A big Thank You goes to Stephanie House from Family Health Services for giving an inspiring and encouraging discussion. They also had a big turnout for their November meeting. They not only discuss healthy food choices, but the group likes to have fun while learning. They had a Food Trivia Game that involved members answering questions while walking around the basement of the church. The first one across the finish line received a fruit basket.

The Dec. 4 meeting will also be their Christmas Party. Everyone is to bring a healthy covered dish as they are having a carry in. Just because they are a weight loss support group doesn't mean that they can't have parties and enjoy themselves. They encourage members to bring dishes that are low in calories, fat and sugar, and no fried foods. They also share recipes to the dishes.

The Wishy Washy Women will be visiting and putting on a skit. Feel free to bring your own drink to the meeting each month. If you are new and plan to attend the December meeting/party, be sure to contact Tammy or Marlene so we will know how many to prepare for. Feel free to call or message us if you have any questions.

For further information, call Tammy Hoff, 621-5129 or message at tammy9157@embarqmail.com or Marlene Troutwine, 459-6964 or mommalene.1@hotmail.com.
