Something like this might be nice to add into the Mary free bed weight management program. Even materials that could be sent home to anybody in the home living with people in the program would be great. How to encourage, support, and not hinder progress. Food addiction, and weight loss can be a real struggle. At this time, we don’t include the family, and I don’t think adding family meetings are a good idea, but educational materials for our circle of supporters would be awesome.
