Taking control of your weight can be hard work at first, but it pays off and produces results that will last a lifetime. Results you will be proud of!

 

Our weight loss programs are focused on life style changes to support you in losing weight and maintaining weight loss through healthy eating habits and exercise schedules consistent with the Center For Disease Control Guidelines.

 

We recommend that you first assess your weight and health risk at the National Health and Lung Institute web site. Then select one of our 2015 program options that works for you.

WHAT ARE PARTICIPANTS SAYING ABOUT THE TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR WEIGHT  PROGRAM?

  •  I thought this program was great.  I’ve been on weight loss programs before that only worked for a short time.  This program is not just a weight loss but a better way to eat for life.  Now I just have to stay on it without our weekly class for support.  Also, I was never hungry and I didn’t have a hard time staring on it.  I still do miss my cookies!!  I just wanted to say how great Judy and Adam were.  They were so supportive and never pushy.  They were a very big part of the reason I stayed on the program.  Adam and Judy were both so up, always working with us to make it work!
  •  This program has been such a great help in my goal to lose weight.  My clothes are much looser.  Have gone down one size.  Friends and family members have noticed.  I feel much more energetic.  I am eating healthier and enjoying it.    Do not miss candy, chips as much as I thought I would.  I would recommend this program to anyone looking to eat healthier and lose weight.
  • In the beginning I was not sure about the lifestyle change weight class.  I stuck with it and I am very happy that I did.  I am more conscious of what I eat. It’s amazing how much weight you can lose by changing what you eat.  More people have asked me what I am doing and (saying) that I look good.  I tell them that it’s not a diet;  it’s a lifestyle change.  They want to know more.  I feel better about myself.  I lost 24 pounds in 12 weeks.
  • What I like best about the class were the facts about how your body handles certain food choices, the accountability of the weigh-ins and measurements and Joe’s passion for the topic. Very knowledgeable!
  • The class was very good.  This class was very informative and learned a lot on how to take control of my weight and how to lose weight.  I have been trying to lose for several years; the most I lost was 12 pounds and gained it back.  On this plan I lose 39 pounds!
  • This class has given me the strength that I needed to start and continue with a healthy way of eating.  It has made me feel more energetic and healthier!
  •  I’m now eating better foods.  I’ve lost a good amount of weight and I plan to continue.  I fit in clothes I haven’t fit in for a long time.  I feel and look better.  I plan to be a lot healthier and thinner in the future.  Thank you.
  •  (The Instructor) was very realistic about the difficulty of losing weight and gave very practical tips to stay on track.
  •   I learned a lot and am happy with the inches I lost.  Wish there would have been an exercise part with it would have helped a lot.
  •  This class really helped me to keep motivated.  I feel so much better and I have met my goal.  Thank you so much!
  •   I have exceeded weight loss goal and plan to try to go lower.  It has helped me learn to watch what is in the food that I am eating.
  •  Totally enjoyed the class and knowledge I learned.  Finally lost the extra weight I have not been able to get off the past 2-3 years. 
  •  This class was very helpful.  I feel it won’t be hard to continue.  Very informative.  Learned the reasoning about why foods in the high glycemic level have to be watched.
  •  What I liked best was the discussions between the class and the helpful suggestions from Joe and the class
