Healthy Weight Healthy Me Program

The college, in conjunction with Independent Health, is excited to present the “Healthy Weight Healthy Me” program. This eight week program is a self-driven program, designed to give you the accountability and resources needed to successfully achieve a healthy weight. Throughout the program, you will learn to incorporate specific strategies to create positive lifestyle changes.

Participating in the program is free and the first step is attending the initial individual consultation to receive your Healthy Weight Healthy Me Kit. The initial individual consultation takes approximately 10-15 minutes and consists of obtaining your weight and height. A representative from Independent Health will be here on Tuesday, January 29 and Wednesday, January 30 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. in the Student Center Conference Room for the initial consultations. No appointments are needed for the initial consultations.

After registering with Independent Health, you will receive weekly emails with tips to help you stay motivated. A representative from Independent Health will return at 4 weeks to weigh participants and review your progress and again at 8 weeks for a final weigh.
