Hello and Welcome to the Healthy Weight Initiative blog! As you may know, we have been working hard for the past few years to help Greene County residents reach and maintain a healthy weight. We have worked with schools, worksites and community organizations to create and implement nutrition and physical activity programs to help us all reach our weight loss goals.
We are currently sponsoring the Greene County Biggest Loser Contest. Each participating worksite has a coordinator who monitors the weight loss of their participating employees. The contest is scheduled to end on June 21 and we are looking forward to hearing your weight loss stories.
We also encourage you to check out the Manageable Challenges program on our website. We know how difficult and overwhelming it can be to lose weight, so we have worked with the NYS Academy of Family Physicians to develop a more streamlined approach to weight loss. Instead of asking you to eat less, choose healthy options and exercise, Manageable Challenges focuses solely on consuming fewer calories. Our program helps you set a realistic weight loss goal, find your daily calorie cap, and take the steps necessary to reach your goal.
In the meantime, if you have a weight loss story to share, please fill out the form here. Sharing your story can inspire others on their weight loss journey!
