Weight loss is always a popular New Year’s resolution. If you made the resolve to lose weight, how are you doing? If you need some extra support, Ashley Self, MS, RD, LDN, Registered Dietitian, at Laughlin Memorial Hospital, will be addressing resolutions vs goals in weight loss at the Passport 55 program on Thursday, March 17, at 10:00 a.m. Self will focus on making good decisions about eating. Her presentation, “Resolutions or Goals….Which is Better,” encourages a broader look at dieting. She will ask: Do we set ourselves up to fail when we make extreme resolutions? Is there a better, slower approach, as we make sustainable changes to support good health throughout the year? Photo: Ashley Self, MS, RD, LDN.
Self said that “diet” is not the appropriate word to use when wanting to lose weight; one must first make “healthy” lifestyle changes, then set small, realistic goals in order to achieve an ultimate goal. “Small steps lead to big outcomes and a healthier you,” she said. She will offer suggestions/tips to help you reach the goal you have set for yourself in 2016.
Attendees will receive important educational information about weight loss and healthy eating habits, compliments of Laughlin Memorial Hospital.
Passport 55 is a health-related, free program, open to the public as a community service. It is presented each month at Roby Adult Center, 203 College Street by Laughlin Memorial Hospital in partnership with the Adult Center.
