    Froedert & the Medical College of WI has a monthly support group meeting, I believe it's on the 4th Monday of each month but no meeting scheduled for June. I've been to 2 of them; one was on emotional eating - very good, interesting, quiz to help you figure out why/when you eat, suggestions, etc.

    If you have a different provider I would check with them; I believe most programs have their own and strongly encourage patients to attend them especially pre-op & post op.

    I just entered the following into google.com and found a number of different groups you may want to look into for yourself; again, I'd start with your provider & their team. I would think they have one if they perform a lot of the surgeries and strongly encourage you to support their meetings.

    Here's what I googled, "bariatric support groups in the greater milwaukee wi area"
