Change Your Behavior, Change Your Weight: An Educational Support Group
Group meets for 8 sessions, beginning July 10, at the UMC, from 12-1:30 p.m.
Explore behaviors causing and/or maintaining excess weight and/or obesity. Participants will learn why crash dieting and temporary weight changes don’t work. Topics include motivation and goal setting for long-term weight loss, journaling food intake, mindless and mindful eating, impulsive eating, body image, and adding activity to support weight loss. Come prepared to learn and apply ways to change behavior in support of sustainable weight loss.
