Dear Members and Friends of TBMP Satellite Groups,
As the COVID-19 outbreak continues to impact all of us in the Delaware Valley, TBMP satellite groups will NOT be able to have meetings as the locations have all been temporarily closed. Although disappointing, we believe that this is an appropriate decision since the health and safety of our members is our main priority.
At present, we do not know when meetings will restart, but please be assured that the TBMP staff will continue to monitor the situation. As each satellite group is unique, we are encouraging each group to stay in touch with their facility and follow the guidelines for their particular location when it is appropriate to resume.
Members will still be expected to weigh themselves on a weekly basis and be accountable to their leaders by sending them the appropriate paperwork. If the leaders have any questions, they can call Susan or Helene.
Members of the Trevose location will be contacted by their leaders with the appropriate steps to follow.
We will miss all of you, but in the meantime, please take advantage of your time off. Continue following your Mods, get outside to walk, do inside exercises, play games, do some early spring weeding. Remember your Activities Incompatible With Eating. Above all, please be safe.
COVID-19 UPDATE 3-28-20
We hope you are all staying safe and coping okay with the unbelievable lifestyle changes forced upon us.
Due to the restrictions imposed upon us due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will be canceling the April 14, 2020 Leaders Meeting. We will not be filling the April supply orders but will save them for May. If there are any emergency supplies you need, please contact Susan Kaufman and we can make arrangements.
We all have very little control over what is going on in our lives right now, but we do have control over what we put in our mouths. Stay accountable. I’m sure you all know that to stay in the program you must continue to keep your food licenses, Stay focused on your modifications and use them to keep you on track.
Please remember that even though we do not have our meetings, we are still connected to each other by our program. Reach out to each other – call/text/e-mail/Facebook. Whatever you are experiencing, you are definitely not going through it alone!
– The TBMP Staff
A Brief History
How to Apply
Please DO NOT use this form to apply for membership in a Satellite Group. Inquires of this type will not receive an answer as that information is available on this website under How to Apply, including information concerning submitting an application for membership, Satellite Group locations, meeting times, and current openings.
TBMP has started an experimental application process that will allow former members who have been out of the program for at least five (5) years to reapply for membership. Former members who want to reapply will need documentation showing that it has been at least five (5) years since they left the program. If they are accepted back into the program, it is with the knowledge that they will not be accepted back in the future if they leave the program a second time. TBMP strongly urges former members who do not qualify under this process to join another program where they can get the support and encouragement that will help them reach their goal. If you are motivated now, please don’t wait.
Information on University-based weight loss programs is available from the National Institutes of Health’s Weight-control Information Network (WIN).
