A few notes from our participants to our partners!

“Thank you for offering this kiosk in such a centralized location. I not only come to American Furniture Warehouse to buy couches and lamps, I come to improve my health.”

“Thanks for providing space for a Weigh and Win kiosk. My husband and I come once a week to weigh-in and now frequently eat lunch from your cafeteria.”

“The mobile kiosk makes weighing-in easy. It came to my place of work and I could weigh myself early and be at work at the same time!”

“Thanks for offering this at the library. I can weigh in and grab a few educational tools while I am at it!”

“Thanks for offering this at the YMCA. I used to come just to weigh in, but then I checked out what Silver Sneakers was. I’m now usually here every MWF morning.”

“Thanks for being here! I have lost lots of weight, gained $60, and a whole new confidence!”

5 Tips for Achieving Your New Year’s Resolution

Only 8% of Americans stick with their New Year’s resolutions. Follow these five tips and set yourself up for success and achieve your goals this year. Cheers to a healthier 2019!

5 Tips for Achieving Your New Year’s Resolution

  1. Start Small – Set small, realistic goals and timelines. Create a goal of hitting the gym 3 days a week instead of every day or losing 10 pounds in 2 months instead of 60 pounds in 1 year.
  2. Focus on One Thing – Unhealthy behaviors don’t develop overnight and neither do healthy ones. Don’t overwhelm yourself with a long list of goals. Focus on one thing at a time. Once you feel confident in sustainable change with one habit, tackle another.
  3. Create an Environment for Success – Set yourself up for success by creating an environment that mirrors the healthy habits you’re trying to create. Late night snacking? Throw out the junk food and stock up on healthy items. Skip morning workouts? Get your gym clothes ready the night before and put your alarm clock on the other end of the room.
  4. Go Easy on Yourself – Did you skip a couple workouts or over-indulge on unhealthy foods over the weekend? Don’t beat yourself up or let it derail you. Missteps will happen. Get back on track and keep moving forward.
  5. Track + Reward – As you work toward your goal, track the progress and celebrate your successes. Did you hit 10,000 steps every day this month? Did you achieve your monthly weight loss goal? Celebrate those successes in a way that won’t undo your hard work like a massage or new workout clothes.
