Tags: support groups
Ever since I began this journey/way of life I have always hoped that support groups would begin to pop up around the country and abroad. I have been waiting for years for this to happen and just when I gave up on the idea of it ever becoming a reality.... on a visit to Dr. D'Adamo's office I found a little card on Barbara, the receptionist's desk. It announced Nancy Kuhn's Blood Type Support group, Nancy is an exuberant long time follower of Dr. D'Adamo, that is meeting once a month at the D'Adamo Personalized Nutrition store in Danbury Connecticut. Not long after that Sharon (NYC) from the Eat Right Forum began asking if anyone wanted to meet in the city at a local restaurant. Over the years I have seen other people try this meet-up method and fail, but Sharon was persistent. Sharon is a beautiful young women who has a very compelling weight loss story and is a patient of Dr. D'Adamo's. She felt that she wanted to meet other people who shared her belief in the diet as a way of life. Since her first meeting she has had three other meetings and the group is growing.
It is exciting to see support groups being started by people who have a vested interest in their diets as a way of life. Encouraged by these two women I have decided it is time to start my own group here on Long Island. My group will begin in the spring and meet once a month. If you join my Facebook group you will receive an announcement in the next few months. I am looking forward to meeting like minded people in a small group setting and sharing our journeys. I now have a renewed vision of support groups all over the world. One at a time is all it will take.
