Weight loss surgery is an option for individuals who meet certain criteria. Gastric banding or the sleeve gastrectomy procedure help you gradually lose and control your weight by reducing the amount of food that your stomach can hold at one time. The system works by helping you control your food intake and supporting long-term, sustainable weight loss. Both procedures require lifelong behavioral, dietary and activity changes.
To lose weight and keep it off requires a commitment. Moving more, eating less, and learning practical information designed to help you succeed are key components to long-term weight loss. The Journeys Weight Management Program is a 20-week class in a supportive environment that’s designed to help you learn new habits and set you on the path to wellness.
