Hang on to your hats, folks. It’s Healthy Weight Week next week!
Okay, maybe we’re a little more excited than you are at this point. But we’ve been working on this for a while now and are excited with all we’ve got to share.
About Healthy Weight Week
If you’re not familiar with Healthy Weight Week, this is its 22nd year of life. It was started by healthy weight pioneer Francie Berg to help change the focus from weight to health, something we’ve been about at Green Mountain since our beginning 41 years ago.
That’s because a focus on weight often leads people in the wrong direction. They try diets and all kinds of crazy weight loss schemes that end up not only leading to weight gain the vast majority of the time, but also commonly lead to poor health.
Green Mountain took over sponsorship of Healthy Weight Week last year. This year, we’ve got some great activities in store that include new infographics, inspirational memes and great blog posts that will help you end the search for weight loss to start living healthfully and often much more happily.
