Sutter Lakeside Hospital and Center for Health’s Wellness Center is presenting “Lighten Up,” a 10-week class and support group dealing with weight and lifestyle management beginning Monday, Jan. 5, 2009.
The program is designed to help participants gain an understanding of the reasons behind overeating, build a realistic and effective exercise program into their lifestyle, develop a successful life long plan for weight management, and learn how to shop for, plan, and prepare healthy menus.
Participants will receive handouts and exercises for each topic discussed and will be encouraged to actively participate in exploring methods for improving mental, emotional and physical health in a supportive and safe environment.
The class will participate in some form of exercise during the last twenty minutes of each meeting. Participants will also meet with a coach to create customized goal and action plan to insure that each participant meets individual program goals.
“Lighten Up” meets ten consecutive Mondays beginning Jan. 5 from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., in the Healing House, located below the Wellness Center on the Sutter Lakeside Hospital campus in Lakeport. The class will be facilitated by Leslie Lovejoy, RN, Ph.D., Holistic Wellness Coach. Additional speakers will include experts in nutrition and exercise.
