Healthy Weight Week Starts Monday – Get Involved!

There’s something magical about the third week in January and – if you’ve been following us, you guessed it – it’s Healthy Weight Week!

About Healthy Weight Week

Healthy Weight Week was developed 26 years ago by healthy weight pioneer Francie Berg. Its aim is to help change the conversation around weight, a mission we are passionate about shifting.

That’s because focusing on weight usually leads us in the wrong direction.

We diet, exercise as a means to an end, and try all sorts of insane weight loss schemes, all in the hope of finally achieving our “ideal” weight.

This probably isn’t news to you, but this might be: a focus on weight loss isn’t just futile, but actually damaging. Products, services, and “lifestyles” sold by the weight loss industry cause most participants to not only fail the regimen, but to gain weight.

Not to mention these schemes often cause poorer health as an outcome of stress. Physical stress in the form of repeatedly undereating, then overeating on low-nutrient foods, and mental stress from feelings of failure that can lead to anxiety and depression.

And it’s no coincidence this event takes place during the third week of January. That’s when New Year diets, cleanses, and “new you” efforts start to fall by the wayside because they’re impossible to sustain.

    So emotional after reading information. Tears of joy.because I just happened on this info while being really down on myself. I try so hard and ruin it all by night binging. I’m a caregiver for my husband for over two years, not complaining just just staying a fact. No family on either side to help. I went back to work 4 days a week and take care of my husband. No joy. no happiness, so I eat. I don’t let him see this side of me. So I know the reasons for overeating but don’t know how stop. I’m 73 and feel a higher being led me to Green Mountain. Look forward to more.
    Thanks Carole
