Take control of life and weight

December 16, 2013

The decision to lose weight is definitely a personal one, but that doesn’t mean you have to go it alone. “We all do better with help and support when we’re making the kind of lifestyle changes required to lose weight,” says Lana Birch, St. Mary’s exercise physiologist. Support is the whole idea behind St. Mary’s Lifestyle Improvement with Fitness and Education, or L.I.F.E., weight management program.

L.I.F.E. is a very practical program that helps people change the way they think about food, activity, and their health, Birch explains. “Sometimes it’s difficult for those closest to us to understand and give the kind of support we need,” she says, “but other class members facing the same challenges can be very supportive. They add energy and an element of freedom and fun to the whole learning process.”

The 12-week program includes education, nutrition and exercise sessions, health assessments, goal setting, challenges, incentives, awards, and a focus on long-term health improvement and weight management.
