"Weight" No Longer Program
Cleveland Clinic Wooster “Weight” No Longer program is a practical, scientifically based weight loss and weight management program designed to teach effective, safe, and reasonable weight loss strategies through behavior change and lifestyle modification. The 18-week program consists of weekly group sessions that will alternate between an educational presentation on a relevant weight loss topic (see list below) one week and a support group style gathering the next. The educational sessions will provide the reason and understanding, essentially the foundation, for the behaviors and actions taken to successfully lose weight and more importantly maintain weight loss. The group support sessions will provide an environment that fosters feedback, support, togetherness, and motivation. Participants will be encouraged to share their concerns, feelings, successes, and failures or, if so desired, simply discuss a news report, research finding, or magazine article. On occasion, group exercise sessions may also take the place of the support groups if preferred.
Participating in the “Weight” No Longer program implies commitment, and thus full participation. There will obviously be conflicts in schedule, unplanned emergencies, and/or previous commitments that may interfere. However, success requires dedication and commitment, and, to some degree, sacrifice. This is not a quick-fix solution and may not be appropriate for those diagnosed as clinically morbidly obese (BMI > 40)*. We want this to be a rewarding, enjoyable, and fulfilling experience, one that will positively impact the rest of your life.
