Obesity Help Regional Seminar in Fairfield

Obesity Help is preparing for its regional seminar in Fairfield on June 24. The all-day event, held at the Hilton Garden Inn, 2200 Gateway Court, will feature a vendor fair, lunchtime reception and lectures on topics related to weight loss.

Obesity Help is an Irvine-based corporation that serves the morbidly obese community through its extensive Web site and bi-monthly OH Magazine.

The June 24 conference will feature four speakers who are well known in the bariatric and weight loss community.

Dr. Monica Ganz has lost 320 pounds following gastric-bypass surgery and is the director of events and chapters for Obesity Help. Her lecture, "Learning to Think Thin" will address the need for post-ops to retrain their brains and go from "thinking fat to thinking thin."

Lori Cochrane is a behavior analyst, speaker, writer and mentor to bariatric patients who had Roux-en-Y gastric bypass about five years ago. Her topic, "Bariatric Behavior: Rules of the Road for Long-term Success," addresses how to replace old behaviors with successful ones and how to enjoy positive change.

Dr. J. Timothy Katzen is owner of Body By Katzen and specializes in post-bariatric plastic surgery. His lecture, "Plastic Surgery After Weight Loss," will address the various types of body-sculpting procedures most common after drastic weight loss.

Lauralyn Bellamy had gastric-bypass surgery three years ago and has created Embody Success! Coaching, to teach others the tools that helped her achieve success. Her topic, "The Key to Overcoming Self-Sabotage in Weight Loss and the Rest of Your Life," is self-explanatory.
