This free program is facilitated by a registered dietitian nutritionist and focuses on changing lifestyle behaviors to promote weight loss. Participants learn to set achievable goals, increase confidence, solve problems and build group social support. 

In the first phase of the program, participants will meet once a week for four weeks. In the second phase, they will meet every other week for four weeks. 

Rather than just giving information or advice, these group meetings help participants decide on and plan for lifestyle changes they wish to make. Weight-Wise encourages:

  • Eating more fruits and vegetables.
  • Eating less saturated fat.
  • Medium calorie restrictions (for 1–2 pounds per week of weight loss).
  • 150 minutes per week of physical activity.

Door prizes and dinner will be provided. Space is limited, so make sure to register. To sign-up, visit or call 501.202.1540. Email Sam Stadter at [email protected] if you have any questions.
