Over the past few years, it has become clear that weight is an important health issue.
The good news is that there are many benefits of maintaining a healthy weight or losing
even a moderate amount of weight. If you are overweight, losing just 5 to 15 percent
of total body weight can lower your chances for developing heart disease or having
a stroke. Weight loss may even improve blood pressure, triglyceride levels and cholesterol
levels. Small changes equal big health gains.
Many Arkansas counties offer free or low cost exercise classes. Contact your county
agent to learn if the classes are available in your area.
This healthy weight program targets behavior changes to help you achieve and maintain
a healthy body. Reshape Yourself emphasizes a three-part approach to weight management:
Reshape Yourself supports the idea that people of all sizes and shapes can improve
health by adopting healthy lifestyles.
This program has helped me realize that I was not eating the right foods. I was eating
too many sweets and foods that were not cooked in ways that were healthier. I am now
eating healthier and exercising. I feel so much better and I have lost 10 pounds.
This program has motivated me to take better care of myself.
- participant, Ashley County
I learned that I don't have to buy fancy foods or vitamins or starve myself to lose
weight and be healthier. Reshape works for me. I've lost 34 pounds in the past year
and been able to keep it off!
- participant, Crawford County
I am more aware of the amount and the quality of food that I eat. I've limited the
portion sizes that I put on my plate and bake rather than fry.
