To celebrate the sixth decade of success since the introduction of weight loss support groups became an established tool in the battle against obesity, we are posting one of the very first articles on the topic. Sixty years? time flies when your having fun...

"The idea of using 'group psychotherapy' in weight-reduction is the brain child of Dr. Albert L. Chapman, former Chief of the Division of Chronic Diseases, U.S. Public Health Services...Group psychotherapy is nothing more than putting to work the adage 'Misery loves company'. People who have a problem in common get together and freely discuss it without fear of mockery.
