YOUR good health is OUR true mission


Local Wellness Program

Posted on 01/7/2015

I am pleased to announce our local supervised weight loss and wellness program with a free, informational meeting at our company headquarters located at 611 E. Stevenson Road in Ottawa on January 19, 2015 at 4 PM.

The weight loss program will be lead by me, a local registered dietitian and certified diabetes educator. I will teach and support the group through a 10-week wellness program. Each week, a new topic will be covered, including subject such as myths and facts, weight loss maintenance, physical activity, fats and the ABCs of changing behavior, to name a few.

Our 10-week program is designed to help people jump start weight loss, while teaching successful tools to keep it off for good. It’s about making a positive, healthy lifestyle change long-term, not a fad diet.

The program at a glance:

  • 10-week weight loss and wellness program
  • Program runs from January 26th to March 30th
  • Attend weekly informational meetings
  • Weigh in weekly, once per week
  • Consume Seattle Sutton’s Healthy Eating meals

  • Cost, no additional fees aside from SSHE meals starting at $108 plus tax (depending on calorie portion)

I have always thought that wellness programs were really helpful. My friend was actually just telling me that her office is starting a wellness program. She said that they are all really excited about it, and it sounds like a fantastic idea to me. I would love to get a wellness program going at my office, because then I would be able to lose weight, and I'm sure my fellow workers would be able to as well! http://www.figureweightloss.com/corporate-wellness
