Healthy Weight Loss Program - New!

Feb 13, 2019
Healthy weight loss can be achieved with the right tools and support system! The Madison Area YMCA’s new Healthy Weight Loss program uses research by the National Institutes of Health, is modeled after prevention programming at the Centers for Disease Control and is designed to help you address everyday challenges of achieving healthy, meaningful and sustainable weight loss.

Participants engage in 10 weekly, hour-long sessions led by a trained facilitator in a small-group format. Each session focuses on a specific weight-loss topic. Explore personal weight loss challenges encountered at home, at work and in social settings. Participants keep weekly food and exercise logs to better understand lifestyle habits and opportunities for change, and compare weights and measurements at the start and end of the program to chart progress.
