Weight-loss support group to hold clothing sale

WOODSTOCK – The Centegra Weight-Loss Surgery Center support group will conduct a semi-annual, gently used clothing sale from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday in the classrooms at Centegra Hospital – McHenry.

Support group members get rid of the wardrobe they have “undergrown” during their weight-loss journey and may freshen it up with pieces that fit now.

The sale is open to the public, and all items are $1 each.

The Centegra Weight-Loss Surgery Center support group is the heart of the program. The group meets twice a month and includes patients in all phases of the weight-loss surgery experience. A registered nurse facilitates the group. The mission is to assist, educate and support the patients before, during and after weight-loss surgery.

Through the support group, members may learn about other patient’s day-to-day successes and struggles and share their own; hear guest physicians, registered nurses, dietitians, counselors and trainers who provide valuable education from nutrition and exercise to maintaining a positive attitude; celebrate successes with those who have experienced the journey; participate in an optional 1-mile to 5K walk in the spring; and enjoy social events, including a summer picnic, Halloween party and holiday party.
