Marina Weight Management Center Mentor Program

Your Health, Your Hospital

The first few years after surgery are critical to your success. It is during this time that you will be cementing your new, healthy eating habits and adjusting your lifestyle. It is also when you will first encounter the physical and emotional changes that come with losing a significant amount of weight. Having the right support can make this transitional period easier, and can assist you in reaching your goals.

As part of this support, the Marina Weight Management Centers offers patients the chance to participate in support groups. During support group meetings, patients can mingle with their peers and hear professionals’ advice for transitioning patients. Support groups also offer the most up-to-date weight-loss information from the staff.

For those who want more hands-on support, we are now offering the Weight Loss Surgery Mentor Program as part of our comprehensive support for Cedars-Sinai Marina del Rey Hospital bariatric patients. This program connects successful weight loss surgery patients with those who have recently had surgery and patients who are interested in overcoming transitional obstacles.

What the Mentor Program Will Include

The beauty of the Weight Loss Surgery Mentor Program is that it is designed by you and your mentor. Together you will discuss your interests and goals, and decide how often to meet and what topics you will discuss. Your transitional weight loss mentor can become:

  • Your walking partner
  • Someone you try new recipes with
  • Your cheerleader
  • Someone who holds you accountable
  • Someone you call with the inevitable “Is this normal?” questions

Mentoring Equals Success

Our team of experts at the Marina Weight Management Center in Los Angeles has seen firsthand that patients who receive more personal support and guidance can lose more weight in that critical first year and are likely to be more successful in the long run. Having one-on-one support will help you better prepare for the road ahead and create an action plan to meet your personal goals.
