Your challenge is to lose at least 5% of your starting weight before May 5, 2017. Every person has their own unique body, which means that every person should not practice the exact same behaviors and expect to achieve the same results. As you consider which diet and exercise changes you may make, you should first discuss your daily habits with your doctor or with your primary medical provider.
If you do not have a doctor or a medical provider, then you can become connected with a dietitian, a trained exercise specialist, a wellness professional, a community health worker, or any of our coalition members who represent various fields that relate to nutrition assistance, mental and spiritual health, simple exercise recommendations, and overall lifestyle modification.
