Weigh to Change for the New Year

“I am a mom of 8-year old twins. I work full-time and take the kids to all of their activities. I still have the same excuse that I don’t have enough time to exercise…except this time I made the time. It was tiring and difficult, but after only 10 weeks, my results were amazing,” says Deb Harrington, North Attleboro Branch member of the Hockomock Area YMCA. “I lost a total of 30.2 pounds, 23.8 inches, and 11.1% in body weight.”

Harold and Nancy Haley also were part of the Weigh to Change program at our Franklin Branch. They added, “An area that surprised us the most was the knowledge we received from Julie, our nutritionist. Not only did we learn what and when to eat but how nutrition impacts allergies, inflammation, and arthritis and how we feel on a daily basis. There’s a lot of truth to the saying ‘you are what you eat.’ We have both lost weight, alleviated many of our aches and pains and have gotten so much stronger.”

Our Weigh to Change program offers a great opportunity to support and guide you in your quest to look and feel better. In fact during 2017, 204 WTC participants lost a total of 1,874 pounds and 1,983 inches.

Registration is now open for our New Year Weigh to Change Program. The 10-week program will run January 29th through April 7th.
