Bariatric Mindset Group Program

There comes a time when you realize that KNOWING and DOING are two different things.

You may KNOW exactly WHAT to do, and at the same time, you KNOW that you are not DOING it. 

There comes a time when you realize that you're struggling with:

  • autopilot behaviors
  • emotional eating
  • emotional overwhelm
  • self-sabotage

And... there's a time when you recognize that it's DEEPER than just meal planning or back to basics and you've GOT to get to the CORE ISSUE. 

There also comes a time when you realize that you need to do something about it and do something drastically DIFFERENT! 

I totally get that!

Are you READY to be part of a group that understands YOUR struggle and that understands YOUR pain with emotional eating? 

Are you ready to be part of a group that will help you understand yourself, gain tools and strategies to help you overcome the food issues and emotional eating, to help you stay on track, or get you back on track when you go astray?

Are you ready to be part of a group that will empower you to make the lifestyle changes that are needed for the long-haul?

Support is what you need and yet you want something more personalized and more in depth.

You want a sisterhood, a team, a troop, to lift you up when you’re down and experiencing challenges.

I’ve been there.

Having been over 400lbs and having bariatric surgery myself, I understand the struggles with food, having to build new coping mechanisms, and the emotional challenges that arise. 

You want a group that gets YOU, your struggle, and your pain.

You want to be called out on the excuses and you want to be held accountable.

You want to get back on track and STAY on track.

You want to understand WHY you do the things you do and REAL strategies, tools, and techniques to change FOR GOOD!

You want the lifestyle shifts and lifestyle change – for the long haul.

You want to know that others know where you’ve been, and have an idea of where you want to go.


Staying the SAME won’t get you the results you desire. 

And you know something HAS to change inside you, in your MINDSET and in your daily actions.

You are hurting because you’re so frustrated that you can’t resist the food, or that you can’t seem to get a handle on your relationships, your eating patterns, or the like.

I know what it feels like to feel TOTALLY out of CONTROL! 

This is the place to get back on track, and stay on track. 


I’ve been there and I get it.

You got the surgery to overcome the struggle, yet you still feel like while some things have changed, there are many things that have stayed the same.

This is because it’s more than just the food – it’s your mindset, it's your behavior, it’s how you feel about you, it’s the outside pressure and judgment from family or friends. You experience pressure at work, and stress and as a result of surgery – your coping mechanism (the food) is just not there for you like it used to be.


You are being called upon to change, and you don’t know how.  You want to eat protein first, yet the potato is calling your name.


This is YOUR life, and to change it – something has got to change. 

That something is YOU.


I’m Kristin, and I’m here to guide you and many others through a group mentoring program that leads you to life-long weight loss and lifestyle success. While you think it’s just the food, the nutrition, the exercise and “THE PLAN” – it’s so much more.

It’s how you feel about the plan, how you feel about yourself, and learning new strategies and tools following bariatric surgery that lead you to success.

And that’s why I’m here.

I've had weight loss surgery and I've had to cultivate the practices and lifestyle changes to keep the weight off long-term. I'm also a licensed psychotherapist, and the international leading expert in success beyond bariatric surgery.

I’m here to guide you to the success you’ve wanted, one step at a time, putting you back in the driver’s seat of your life – and leading you to lifelong-weight loss and lifelong bariatric success.


This is a group of bariatric/wls peeps of all shapes, sizes and of all backgrounds. Some are less than three months out and others have years’ post-surgery. The goal is to get back on track and stay on track for the long-term.



This is a commitment and this is not a jump in jump out type of group – it's for 3 whole months!

We lift you up when you’re down and we soar together.

Commitment is one of our biggest priorities because I know-  we know that without commitment, you’ll be backsliding into old patterns.

This program is a commitment to yourself, a commitment to your goals, a commitment to your future and a commitment of ALL of who you want to become on this bariatric journey that you’ve begun.

What is the difference in this group and a support group?

There is a HUGE difference in this bariatric mindset group program and a support group for a few reasons. First off, support groups are great and they are a great drop in option to help you stay on track. They offer guidance and support - however, there are many individuals that need much deeper accountability, assistance, and guidance/coaching to help with deeper emotional issues that may keep them stuck. Also, this group is meant to hold you accountable and refocus your commitment on your journey. 

In this program we will be focused on the root cause of the issues and dig deeper into the issues that seem to frequently resurface. Like anyone, life gets busy. However, that's not an excuse to get off track. This program helps to retrain your brain how to stay focused when life gets busy. This program is for individuals who are ready and committed to work on the core issues so that the symptoms subside. This program is another level of help for people who KNOW that they need to do more, gain more help beyond the support group level, and for those who are ready to commit to themselves and their growth.
