Walk-A-Weigh

The Walk-a-Weigh Program is a series of lessons that will teach you how to  make the changes you want to make to achieve permanent weight control.  Family and Consumer Science Agent Brad Averill will offer a different class each week to provide you with the skills to improve your food intake, become more physically active and adopt the health habits that will allow you to stay happy and healthy for a long time.  Each class also includes educational handouts and activities that will reinforce what you have learned.

Physical Activity is an important component of Walk-a-Weigh. As a group we wil participate in physical activity with a supportive group for 30-45 minutes per session.
