10-week course offers weight management help

Managing weight through developing a healthy lifestyle is the goal of a 10-week series being offered at the Sunnyside Seventh-day Adventist Church Friendship Building, 1875 E. Lincoln Ave., beginning Aug. 22.

The public is invited to the Monday 7 p.m. programs, according to Pastor Larry Mays, program coordinator.

"The information is scientific research-based and referenced, and the practical applications are designed to be appropriate to a person's real-world life," he explained.

Key aspects of the program include realistic goals, a calorie controlled eating plan, physical activity, motivation, several health or lifestyle assessments, instruction in the principles of weight management and behavior change, problem solving, group support and accountability, a self- monitoring system for food intake and activity level, outcome measurements, and group interaction and support.

There is a $20 suggested donation for materials.

To register call 837-4233. Mays requested those getting the answering machine leave a name and phone number for contact.
