Saturday Scoop is FREE in February

Day to day life in the DMV can be stressful, overwhelming, and exhausting. Washington Center for Weight Management and Research wants to help you decompress, take a breath, and practice some self-care. All February long, Saturday Scoop will be free!

What is Saturday Scoop?

If you’ve never been to Saturday Scoop, every Saturday one of our amazing clinicians leads a 1-hour interactive group (10:00 am to 11:00 am) that covers a variety of health or weight related topics. In February, we will explore why exercising on a regular basis is so difficult, work on changing how we think about our food and body image, and, explore the world of obesity medication. See below for a schedule of topics, and a brief description of each session. RSVP to Michelle at

Feeling Better About our Bodies

From not liking the way a pair of pants fit, to avoiding mirrors and reflective surfaces, many people struggle with negative feelings about the way they look. Not only can how we view our bodies impact our emotional state, it can contribute to weight gain or difficulty with weight loss. The good news is, we don’t have to feel this way. By slowly changing the way we think about our bodies, we can start to feel better! Please join clinical psychologist Rachel Burnett, PhD to learn skills to address your own body image concerns in a warm, supportive environment.
