First Saturday Support is a peer to peer run support group that meets the first Saturday of each month at RWJ Fitness in Scotch Plains from 10:30 - noon. It was founded in March 2007 by two bariatric patients and has grown over the last 5 years to a wonderful group of caring and supportive people who discuss many different topics pertaining to bariatrics. Everyone is welcome, we are a co-ed group and all types of surgery is represented, pre ops are encouraged! The facility has free childcare and you can work out afterwards, there is an olympic size pool, a therapy pool, hot tub, sauna and steam room, locker rooms and all sorts of equipment available! We are not affiliated with any doctor or hospital and sometimes have guest speakers/presentations. We meet again this Saturday, February 4, and will have a guest speaker for part of the meeting! Address of the fitness center is: 2120 Lamberts Mill Rd, 07076. Email: [email protected] for further information! Hope to see you there!

[email protected] and I will put you on the distribution list. I cannot wait to meet you and help you be a successful loser! I had RNY in 2006 and it was the best thing I ever did! Sorry I hadn't done it sooner but I am not only thinner but a better and happier person.
