Y Weight Loss

Support on the road to wellness

Get support making lifestyle changes to lose weight and improve your overall health with our new 12-week, small-group structured Y Weight Loss program. Next sessions begin in April!

Introducing the new Y Weight Loss Program

 

Going through the 12-week weight loss program has taught me how to take smaller steps towards behavior modifications so that I can sustain weight loss and a healthier lifestyle. The program has taught me about my emotional connection to food and taught me how to track my daily activities (food, exercise, moods), which has kept me accountable. That has been my key to success.

What Participants are Saying

Not only did I learn so much from the program, but even more so I learned much about myself... At 78 years of age, I am proud to say that it is never too late to start a new life, and I thank the YMCA for giving me the tools to enjoy the results of my new lifestyle journey

What attracted and motivated me was that no one was telling me the do's and don'ts of successful weight loss but rather that these are the tools that can help you... The sessions were most informative, reinforced by an excellent workbook and suggested weekly assignments.

The [YMCA's Weight Loss Program's] approach gave me the structure and motivation to finally start my weight loss journey. I still have a ways to go, but now I have the tools and confidence to reach my final goal on my own.

Participating in the group meetings was a plus. I got to spend time with people that I did not know but shared similar goals and needs. We were able to share with one another to gain strength and support. The camaraderie was phenomenal. The instructor served as the facilitator, but the group discussions were participant-led.
