Back on Track Program


Nicholson Clinic Back on Track Program

Our weight fluctuates for many reasons. It could be due to medical issues, whether a previous surgery is showing signs of complications, perhaps there are hormonal changes or medications affecting your weight, or an injury that’s affecting your health. Or perhaps it’s lifestyle and behavioral changes - busy schedules, kids, travel. Let’s face it, life gets in the way of always having a good diet and getting plenty of exercise. There are many reasons why it’s hard to lose weight and keep it off, but what this program aims to do is to get to the root of the cause, and chart a best path forward based on your individual needs.

Whether you are a weight loss surgery patient who has regained weight or anyone struggling to lose weight, this program is for you! Our medical team has partnered with psychologists, dietitians and fitness experts to take a multi-disciplinary approach to helping individuals get back on track and achieving long-term weight loss. 

STEP 1: Back on Track Consultation
Call our office at 800-727-2197 and schedule an appointment for a Back on Track Consultation. This is a thorough medical evaluation with a Nicholson Clinic doctor or nurse. We’ll discuss medial background, take any labs or necessary tests, and get an assessment and current baseline. We’ll address concerns and talk about goals. Our medical professional will make recommendations for next steps based on your individual needs.

STEP 2: Possible Solutions To Get You On Track
After your Back on Track consultation, we will recommend next steps. Here are some possible options or combination of options we currently offer:

  • Non-Surgical Weight Loss: Under the direction of Gloria Gonzales, RN, APN, Nicholson Clinic offers dietary guidance, fitness direction, behavioral support, and pharmaceutical interventions for those who are struggling to lose weight. From here we can schedule monthly visits for continued evaluation: physical, psychological, nutritional and medication refill.
     
  • PsyMed, Inc. Back on Track Workshop: PsyMed offers online or in-person sessions with a psychologist and/or dietitian, based on your needs.

  • Weight Loss Surgery or Revisional Surgery: At Nicholson Clinic, we specialize in finding the right weight loss solution for each individual person. For some, it might be Weight Loss Surgery. For others, who have had weight loss surgery in the past, but has not resulted in inadequate weight loss or is causing a complication, revisional surgery many need to be addressed.
     
  • Take Advantage of All the Support We Offer: From our Facebook Support Group to multiple monthly nutritional, fitness and support group classes, all free for Nicholson Clinic patients, we have something for everyone to stay accountable and motivated. Check out our current support offerings.
     
  • ReLaunch Nutrition: At Nicholson Clinic, we know that surgery is only part of the weight loss equation. It takes lifestyle change through a healthy diet and consistent exercise. But not every "healthy diet" works. The right supplements are part of that equation. That’s why we developed ReLaunch Protein and Meal Replacement, a good high-quality source of protein that not only works, but completely dissolves, mixes well, tastes good, and is affordable. Visit Relaunch to learn more.
