'Don't Give Up' on Weight Control – A Worksite Wellness Success Story

GinaFor Gina, a State Health Plan member from Charlotte, losing weight was always a challenge. After trying many different methods, she discovered Eat Smart, Move More, Weigh Less. The on-site, 15-week, instructor-led weight-management course coaches people just like you on healthy strategies for nutrition, physical activity and stress management.

"I cannot recommend this program enough for anyone struggling with weight. Don't give up, never give up!" Gina said recently. "Open your mind to realizing that you can make a change – big ones or lots of little ones - that make a tremendous difference."

This program taught Gina how lifestyle changes and a better understanding of your health can lead to big results. Gina has lost 70 pounds and is on target to reach her healthy weight range goal. "Weight is such a challenge, but with this program – not so much!" she said. "It can truly help you get control."
