Weight Loss Programs

Weight Loss Programs by ELVPHD

Reducing obesity rates in our district is one of our top priorities. Data shows that 39.4% of ELVPHD service area residents are obese and this has traditionally been higher than the national average. In addition to healthy weight statistics, 71% of our residents also reported eating less than the recommended servings of fruit, 11.5% reported eating no vegetables on an average day and 72% did not exercise for at least 20-30 minutes more than 3 times per week. To help those in our district achieve and maintain a healthy weight, ELVPHD has a program called Scale Down which we host approximately twice a year in the district. If you are interested in being included on a wait list for this program, please email us at [email protected] and we will notify you when the next Scale Down Weight Loss Program will be starting.  

Health Coaching: We offer 3 session health coaching to help women who are aged 40-64 get on track with their health goals. This program is free and includes a bloodwork measurement and in-person or electronic sessions with one of our health coaches. 

We are here to help you achieve individuals achieve a healthy weight! In addition to the two individual programs noted above, we also work with businesses in our district to provide health coaching worksite wellness sessions in a group format (often over the lunch hour or before/after work on site at the business).  

Walking is a simple way to move towards a healthier lifestyle.  To help make it easier, ELVPHD mapped out some common routes in most of the towns in our service area.  These maps show the route, distance and information about the approximate completion time for each route.  Click on your community below to check out the map for your town!
