HealthyLife Weigh 2016 series

This weight management program focuses on weight loss goals supported by healthier nutrition practices and increased physical activity.  It is ideal for the individual needing to lose 10-40 pounds, and at a stage of readiness where lifestyle changes can be made. Nutrition education is delivered in a 4 week program led by a registered dietitian in the Minges Wellness Center at Lenoir Memorial.  The program is a modified form of the national program, HealthyLife Weigh, and focuses on the necessary formula for permanent weight loss: balancing calorie intake from food and calorie output through physical activity.  We will assist you in making permanent lifestyle changes to help you get to and stay at a healthy body weight.  This is not a diet but a new way of incorporating positive eating and activity habits. Each series consists of 4 classes that cover portion control, nutrition, grocery shopping, and emotional eating.  Participants will receive 2 months membership in the Minges Wellness Center with an individual exercise plan developed with an exercise specialist.
