Vicki Bovee To Address Victorious Losers Support Group

The Victorious Losers support group will meet at 7 p.m., August 11 (second Wednesday of the month) at Charles Cole Memorial Hospital’s main conference room. The group is designed for those who need to make life altering decisions, such as weight loss surgery, those who have already undergone surgery, and their friends and family.

Meetings are led by Paula Warner, a certified support group leader from and Bariatric Support Centers International. She was also a weight loss surgery patient and hopes to offer speakers, cooking classes, special events, and outdoor activities. Feedback from attendees will help develop the meetings to offer the best support, she said.

The speaker will be Vicki Bovee, M.S., R.D., L.D., a registered dietitian with over 25 years experience in weight loss, weight management, and specializing in bariatric nutrition since 2003.

She is the author of numerous articles and several book chapters emphasizing healthy eating in relation to weight management and weight loss surgery. Along with Fouts, Bovee has written “Ditch Your Diet in 30 Days” and weight loss surgery preoperative and postoperative recipes booklets.
