Do you always seem to be on a diet? Are you struggling with your weight? Are you ready to change your life? Then Weigh-In 2018 is for you! What is Weigh-In? It is a FREE yearlong program designed for people who are interested in making positive, lifelong lifestyle changes. This program helps participants achieve moderate weight loss by eating well and being active. The goals of the program include:
• Achieving seven percent weight loss from starting weight;
• Getting 150 minutes of physical activity each week;
• Keeping off the weight you lose;
• Providing weekly support for participants.
Here’s what 2017 participants had to say about it:
“I learned to gradually make long-term lifestyle changes — a lot better than doing a short term project and slowly returning to old habits! And I increased water intake.”
“This group has been a great, safe, effective way to get healthier. I knew I wanted to lose weight and eat healthier and be more active. We get a great, enthusiastic coach to keep us on track and getting better at these lifelong skills and ‘live longer’ skills.”
“I love the Weigh-In 2017 class because it makes me accountable for my actions. I have lost over 50 pounds and I am so thankful that our community and our hospital has a program like this. This program has literally saved my life.”
“Harney District Hospital offers a great, supportive weight loss program that is free. The program provides education on good nutrition and science-based information that is geared to support participants as they commit to changing their eating habits and increasing their levels of activity. This program is well worth the year-long commitment, and resulted in my personal completion of a New Year’s Resolution! Thanks to Amy Dobson for providing positive help and support during this past year!” –Mike, Class of ’17
